My kids do respect the penalty pal, and it has made "time out" more effective. But In less than a month, my kids (3 & 1.5 yo) managed to render one sticker useless. Not by playing with it, but just having to keep their hand on it -- just wore out. Maybe that's why it comes in a pack of two?
I love the design & concept of the penalty pal dot. However, it is made like a regular sticker. It should be made of vinyl like other wall decals. I am going to laminate the remaining penalty pal and stick it to my wall with 3M strips.
I love these! As a nanny in grad school I had my kids sit on a tapped square for a "waiting spot". This is a much better solution. It is easy to place and easy to remove. My son loves it and it helped him to learn what his hand was!
I am a mom of three girls 2, 3, 5. I was given three of the penalty pals, and was doubtful they would work. I was wrong! They have made time out much easier. My girls each can go to their own pal and really stay put. The fact that I can move them and stick them anywhere is also helpful. I don't need a corner, I can drop in on the floor in the middle of the room I am in! Each of my girls has a different personality, and I have different challenges in regards to time out. The Penalty Pal worked for all three. I highly recommend them!
