How tall are the kids? We find out with!

I imagine many of you, like me, can remember being lined up near a door frame and having your height marked on it in pen. Yet, it’s not a tradition I’ve carried on and I recently realised I have no idea how tall any of my children are! The doctors assure us that none of them have any height-limiting illnesses and that they’re not curving over due to scurvy or rickets. Nevertheless, when got in touch I jumped at the chance to give one of their custom tape measures a go to see how tall my offspring had become.

The Funky Tape Measure is a premium quality tape measure, imprinted with the design of your choosing. Each tape is Class II Accurate making it extremely accurate for measuring, has a dual sided hi-vis blade featuring metric and imperial measurements and extends to 8m/26ft.


My personal experience of getting my own funky tape measure has been amazing. Through contact via email and Twitter they have been really communicative, updating me at various points in production, asking questions when necessary to make sure they’re giving me the absolute best product. I’ve seen them doing similar with other customers too and it gives an overall impression of a friendly, small company that are attentive to their customers and to their online following.

The tape measure itself is both heavy and shiny; the two hallmarks of a quality product! It’s reassuringly solid and you don’t feel like you have to be too delicate with it. Even though it’s a gift product, you should feel totally confident to fling this in the toolbox like any other tape measure.

So, to the business of measuring my brood. First up was Marshall.


Marshall is measuring a whopping 134cms tall! Now for the youngest, Claudia.


She’s an amazing 102 cms tall! Now for Morgan. He should be somewhere in the middle.


He’s a brilliant 120cms!

We had loads of fun measuring the minions and despite not knowing about it before I’d definitely consider this as a ‘blokey’ stocking filler for some of my DIY-fan friends this christmas. Check out for more details and to get one ordered for yourself.

    Haha, that looks great! Our kids are obsessed playing with tape measures too- most things that don’t move fast enough get measured in our house 🙂
    Good pressie idea too.

      It was cool! I was also geeking out over having something with our logo on it too! So far we now know how long all the pets are and most of the cuddly toys, lol.

    Thanks for such a great review DadGeek. Great to see the tape being used for something alternative.
