I liked the material and the chart is hanging in both kids' rooms. It is sturdy and will hopefully last for a while. My older son (4) loved looking at the animals to see how tall he is in comparison. The only problem is that the chart starts at 1 foot, so you need a ruler to make sure it is hanging at the correct height and it doesn't have a ribbon or something to hang it by. We used tape, which seems to be working out just fine. I would recommend this product.
