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.
If you select vinyl it will be sealed, engraved charts are left natural wood which you can oil if you wish.
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.

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?
Yes we can set this up for you, please contact us here to organise.
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, would love your engraved 180mm unpersonalised height chart that is currently on sale, but would love the numbers to be in the middle please if possible. What would be the shipping cost to Auckland?

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?
We have 3 materials we make the rulers from. Pine, Rimu and American White Oak.

Temporarily moving to get earthquake repairs done Jess & Dan realised the markings on their door frame showing their then two year-olds growth would be lost.
Looking for an affordable option that would save the markings and move with them led Jess to make her own growth ruler. Before Jess could hang it a friend asked for one. Little Miss Viking was started and grew from there.
Affordable personalised memories & gifts are now our full time focus.
