A wooden height chart handmade by Little Miss Viking in New Zealand makes a great family keepsake and you can get your wooden growth ruler personalised for free, they are designed as a giant modern wooden ruler.
Our wooden height charts are family heirlooms in the making. They make original personalised unisex gifts for Christmas, new arrivals, christenings, first birthdays, best of all they can move house when you do. No more lost history!
By personalising them with a family name (rather than the child's), they can still be enjoyed if further new additions arrive later on. Being a stylish home accessory as well as being practical, the "Giant Rule" wooden height chart does not have to be hidden away in a child's bedroom or nursery and instead can be a centrepiece to the home in a hallway or kitchen.
A great family keepsake, this pine height chart is the perfect way to keep track of your growing family. The wooden pine height chart is marked from 20cm to 200cm and is designed to be installed 20cm off the floor enabling plenty of room for skirting boards.
Other personalisations you can make to your wooden height chart are, changing from cm to inches, changing where the numbers start to avoid skirting or get more height, requesting a custom font for the the personalisation.
Top tip if you know anyone that wants a height chart buy them on the same order and it will reduce the freight costs
When you measure your family you must write onto the wood with a normal ball point pen. DO NOT USE A PERMANENT MARKER as it will run/smudge.
The height chart comes with a saw-tooth hanger on the back that can be mounted on a 3m hook at 195cm off the ground.
I have been wanting something like this for a while now and finally got the height chart through Little Miss Viking. It was extra exciting opening and hanging it on the wall as we are still in lockdown and everyone in the family were excited to stand up and have their height recorded! Have already recommended to a friend :) Thanks!
Very happy with ruler. Looking forward to using it for many years to come
We have had another hight chart before and love it... Unfortunately to measurements we off and giving us the wrong heights. This one has arrived and is beautiful and accurate. Love it! Thanks
A very special part of our home. I wanted one of these when we started our family just as our parents had done for us. So pleased it’s moveable so when it’s time to shift the whole thing just comes with us. Amazing quality and a quick turn around. Thank you so so much. We love it!
Exactly as described. Beautiful height chart.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
And is it possible to get one with the measurements printed in the middle, so we can have 1 child\'s measurements on each side?

Hi, is the wooden height chart able to be made to be screwed in to the wall rather than from a hook? Thanks
Yes you can screw it into the wall if you prefer you can simply remove the sawtooth that comes attached or request it not to be attached.
Hi, I can’t see on the pictures, what height does this start from and finish at? How high off the ground do I need to hang this?
The height charts start at 20cm and go to 200cm, you need a hook at approximately 195cm from the ground.
What is the best pen to use on the height chart please - ink or ballpoint....or something else?
We recommend you use a fine point marker or ballpoint pen. Avoid using a pen that is very inky as it will bleed into the wood. (You can also test a pen on the back of your height chart before you use it.)

Hi There. We are a school in East Auckland and would like to have a height chart outside. How resilient to the weather are your wooden rulers? What would suit us best
Hi there Thank you for your message. For going outside we would make one out of macrocarpa which looks similar to the pine but can be outdoors I would paint on the numbers and coat it or we can engrave the numbers and then it would be fine outside. Regards Jess
Hi, what wood are your rulers made from please?
