Routine Helper, By Second Scout - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:          Wooden and artistically-crafted routine planner 

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Recommended age:  3 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Parents who want to set up routine for kids in a smart & simple way! 

Sometimes, I feel like voice recorder that repeats myself 🤣. Our morning is usually a chaotic flurry of events where two parents shouting out step-by-step routine to the kids: from toilet, brush hair, breakfast, shoes on etc. This “Routine Helper” that we recently received from Second Scout takes over a big proportion of this heavy load, by encouraging kids to get the steps right with a visually-simple board! 

Why I love ❤️ this Routine Helper: 

(1) Double-Sided Stand - The set includes a double-sided display stand and 20 magnetic tiles. Like the “Little Agenda” set I reviewed recently, the display stand allows family to plan their day using an intentional minimalist design. Everything looks straight-forward, visually calming, without unnecessary colours, decorative patterns or distracting “additions”. What I love best is the double-sided magnetic display stand; we can get morning routine set up on one side, and bedtime routine organised on the other. 

(2) Magnetic Tiles - The set comes with 20 concealed magnetic timber picture tiles, consisting of 10 morning tiles and 10 afternoon/ nighttime tiles. There are frequently-used tiles such as “Breakfast”, “Bathroom”, “Clean Teeth”, “Bath/Shower”; I love the delightfully useful ones like “sunscreen” (super important for summer), “wash hands” (definitely needs this reminder), and “story time” (comes right after the “pyjama” tile). The tiles are cleverly double-sided where flipping over would reveal a “star”; I love how it gives the little ones a sense of achievement when each step is completed! 

(3) "Add-ons" Tiles - The tile sets are “expandable; Second Scout has “add-ons” that can be purchased separately (eg responsibilities set that includes tiles such as “water plant”, “dishes”, “laundry”; and “reminder” set with tiles such as “drink bottle”, “lunch box” and “hat”). 

(4) Quality Material- The product is made form sustainably sourced rubberwood, printed & sealed with a non-toxic finish. I love the modern and timber-look that fits right into most home decor. I also love that it doesn’t take up too much table space, which is perfect for small house like ours. 

Thanks Second Scout for providing this to us for review. LOVE IT!
