What is the Fairy Reward Box?

  • The Fairy Reward Box is a beautifully crafted, wooden, fairy house which will look stunning in any nursery, child’s bedroom or playroom
  • Rather than collect stickers on a chart (like a traditional reward chart) children receive tokens (your box comes with 20 wooden tokens in the shape of stars) which they post into the Reward Box
  • The tokens can then be replaced (ideally overnight by a magic 'good behaviour' fairy!) with small rewards / promise vouchers as they achieve their goals (for ideas on appropriate goals for each age group please visit our How To Use page)
  • The Fairy Reward Box can be personalised for your child (with their name and some fun characters), to find out more please visit our Personalisation page 
  • For a full list of ideas for rewards please visit our Reward Ideas page, or to download some promise vouchers to create activity rewards please visit our FREE download page
This is a beautiful reward box that my 3.5 year old daughter decorated herself. She loves earning the stars to go into it and can open the little door to count how many she has. I can see her using this for many years! Really is lovely and working great so far

What ages is the Fairy Reward Box suitable for?

The Reward Box is suitable from birth to approximately 8 years of age.  How you use it will vary as your child grows but below is a taste:

  • From birth to 18 months – The Reward Box is a timeless, keepsake, which will look beautiful in a new nursery and will grow with the recipient.  A wonderful new born or christening gift
  • From 18 months to 3 years – reduce toddler tantrums, manage potty training and encourage sharing.  Toddlers thrive on immediate reward.  The Reward Box enables small achievements to be instantly recognized with a token which they will love posting.  We recommend that tokens are replaced on a daily basis (in order to keep their interest) for small rewards.  For a multitude of age appropriate ideas please visit our Reward Ideas page
  • From 3 years to 5 years – help set bedtime (and waking up!) routines, develop listening skills and manners.  Pre-school children can be encouraged to help set their goals (and to develop their basic numeracy skills) and will love collecting tokens to work towards them.   We recommend that tokens are collected over a period of about a week to be exchanged for family days out or small toys.  For inspiration on what you might offer please visit our Reward Ideas page
  • 5 years plus – reward homework completion, develop a sense of responsibility through basic chores and start to transition towards concepts such as pocket money and savings.  Encourage older children to swap some of their tokens for immediate rewards such as special treats (staying up late or a family movie night) and exchange others for real money to save in their money boxes

Brilliant little invention. As soon as my girls got up this morning and found them they have been looking for ways to earn stars. The boxes are beautifully made and the stickers they come with are of good quality.

How else can my child be encouraged to play with their Fairy Reward Box?

You will find that your child will have a million uses of their own for their very special Fairy Reward Box, here are just a few what we have seen from our own children and some of our happy customers.  (note - we do not recommend that children under the age of 3 use their Reward Box without adult supervision)

  • Posting worries about things that children aren’t ready (or able) to discuss.  Once posted the fairies will take the problem away (or at least inform adults so they can help to deal with it)
  • Pretend play (writing letters and posting them to friends, fairies and other magical creatures)
  • Leaving teeth for the tooth fairy
  • Leaving notes for Father Christmas
  • Building to Christmas Day as part of 'Elf on the Shelf' / advent
  • Practicing basic numeracy skills (post 6 coins in the box)
  • Using as a money box for older children who may have outgrown the need for a Reward Box

Got the box today - my 8 year old is so happy. Great incentive for reading/homework/tidying her room etc... Absolutely love it and fab that it can be personalised. The box it arrived in is so lovely, I don’t want to throw it away!

I have a 2 year old granddaughter who is going through a “mischievous phase” shall we say. The usual things aren’t working and her parents are unsure what to do next, so I looked at rewards, stickers, jars etc. and came across this, it’s absolutely beautiful and can have her name on it too, I’m really pleased with it and so far it’s doing the job, she loves getting the stars for being a good girl.

The house is very well built its solid wood and painted beautifully, the little latch on the door is easy to use even for a 2 year old once she was shown, and the stars come in a little netting bag, it’s so well thought out. I have seen there are a boy’s version so i intend to purchase this for my grandson also. I’d recommend it.
