Toybox Thursday: Ring the Bell Electronic Goal Tracker Review & Giveaway (Ed. Insights)

Toybox Thursday is back from hiatus/vacation &
today I have another great review/giveaway from Educational Insights.


 

What's in the box?

You basically get a 20" Freestanding goal tracker w/base.
The base must be attached - but it's a simple snap on.
It is also easy to snap off for storage in the box.

The goal tracker is made using a write-on/wipe-off chart for ease & repeated use.
 It includes 4 major milestone markers
(these generate light & sound effects when reached!)
and the attached milestone puck which is easy & simple to move up and down.


Our Thoughts:

The Lil Divas LOVED the lights & sounds the goal tracker makes.
When I first opened it up they easily spent 10-15 mins
making the lights & sounds go off by moving the puck up to the bell! :)

This would obviously be great for a classroom
but it can certainly be equally useful at home.

This would be great for keeping track of books read, chores completed, etc.
Any goal you have with your child can be incorporated
since you get to write the specifics on the tracker yourself.

At our home, we have used marble jars for the girls to encourage specific behaviors.
I can not tell you how many we have broken in the past!
It's both a mess & a safety concern.
This is so much simpler to use!

Right now, I will be using it specifically with the Oldest Diva
to help with her sleeping issues!
For each night of the week she goes to be without a fuss/fight
we will move up the tracker -
until we reach our goal and then she will get a special treat
like being taken out  to her fave local frozen yogurt place!

I think the electronic bell tracker is definitely more "exciting" than our old marble jar.
The lights & sounds make reaching milestones festive - like a mini celebration!

  102. I would use this for my 4yr old twins to help with finalizing their potty training. I've got one who persists in peeing her pants and will only poop in a diaper. The allure of stickers has worn off and she might get with the plan if she gets to ring a bell. One can only hope.
