My sister had been looking for a new reward system for her two eldest boys. As the current sticker charts they were using just wasn’t working out for them. She had seen on facebook a great reward system called Happy Tokens. When she told me about these, I had a look myself and thought they looked really great. So I asked the owner if I could get some for the boys to review on my blog. She was very nice and kindly agreed that I could have 2.

The reward system is a little plastic tub with the child name on and they have some happy tokens. Some tokens have smiley faces on them and some have a sad face. They also come with a special golden token too. You can choose the colour of your child’s name and also the colour of both sets of tokens. My sister chose light blue for Regan (6) and green for Jayden (8). She went for white for the smiley faces and black for the sad ones.

The Happy Tokens are very different to sticker charts. As with sticker charts you normally give the child a sticker every time they show good behaviour or if they have behaved on that day. But with these, not only do they get tokens when these show ‘good’ behaviour, but they also get one when the show ‘bad’ behaviour. You can clearly see through he tube how many happy or sad tokens they have got. You can adapt the reward system to a way that suits you as a family. My sister did it that if that had so many good tokens by the end of the week they would get a treat. Something like a new magazine or a trip down to the park. She also gave the gold token to them if they showed extremely good behaviour.

Her eldest, Jayden, as Asperger’s, and this Happy Tokens reward system has really worked well with him. Both the boys love trying to fill their tubes up with the happy tokens.

These a just brilliant! I am thinking about getting some for my youngest two as well. My sister even mentioned these to Regan’s teacher and she thinks they are a fantastic idea and may even get some for her class to use.

You can find more about Happy Tokens on their website. Single starter packs are £9.99 and you can also buy extra happy token in a choice of 12 different colours for just £2.99. Happy Tokens also post out worldwide!!

  1. These sound like a great idea
    Think they look more effective than reward charts and you can see at a glance how good or bad they’ve been

  2. These sound great – I use Reward boxes from – the pirate and princess ones. I think making rewards fun is a good idea, so these would work well

  3. This sounds like a great idea! Managing children’s behaviour can often be a challenge, but this looks like it would go a long way towards helping! 🙂

  4. These are an absolutely amazing idea!!! My daughter is nearly 3 and I have been debating what system to use with her. The naughty step doesn’t work, she just doesn’t seem to grasp the concept of it even though she’s extremely intelligent. I think she is clever enough to understand this concept though, and it would be wonderful to reward her when she’s been good.

  5. This is a brilliant idea! I think this would work well for my children, too! I like that yo uan see the tokens through the tube and the sad tokens, too! x

  6. I have now ordered 2 of these – I like the fact that bad behaviour shows as well – might make my kids behave better – the reward boxes I mentioned are only for good behaviour, etc, but these will now show how bad they have been as well. I have never been a fan of sticker charts, and I am annoyed they get used in school!!!

  7. This is First time I saw these Happy tokens. Though I made for my daughter quite similar token system when she was young this system is more easy to use

  8. I really like this idea. We are trying to find a reward system for our 5 year old, and I think this might just work 🙂
