Growing, growing, gone! Kids grow up so fast that every family should have a growth chart for recording those precious milestones that pass us by. For those who don’t want to make a mess marking walls or hammering nails there’s lots of adorable options to chose from. Whether you decide to buy or DIY, here’s 15 height charts you should set your sights on.
1. Do the robot
The little ones get a new friend with this Robot Growth Chart ($29.95) by Petit Collage. With over 20 colour stickers included you can mark the milestones in style!

We love this foldable yardstick ($21) from Donkey Creative Lab. Perfect for a family that’s always on the move, you can take this piece of family history with you everywhere you go.
3. Taller than a…
Watch as they grow taller than a cat, a dog and even a monkey! It may be a long time before the little ones catch up with mum and dad, but this Taller Than Height Chart ($29.95) by Oliver’s Twisty Tales makes the journey a lot more fun.
