I got 2 programmed it to for our kids' needs, and it gives them a visual reminder as well as gentle sound reminders (all programmable) to take the next steps in their routines with a visual timer. For instance, we set the teeth brushing routine to 2 mins. They can't skip through it faster. They brush as they watch the timer go down, so I'm no longer the bad guy enforcing a minimum time limit, the Goally is (which they don't mind). They know if they don't do it, they don't earn points, which is what they cash in for screen time later. It's just taken the burden off of me nagging and enforcing and always being the bad guy. No more magnetic or velcro chore chart that end losing pieces. They like having their own device to care for.
Goally has been great for my daughter. She adapted to it quickly and she now enjoys following all of her routine. Five Stars!!
My kiddo loves it. Gets mad at it when he doesn’t want to do his stuff instead of me lol, but does everything it tells him to do he gets his stars ⭐️!!! Then he feels good about it!!!
Goally was instrumental in establishing a routine with our daughter with ADHD. We went from daily meltdowns to peace and cooperation on the very first day.
My son loves Goally and when we first started he would listen to Goally but not us because he's seriously self directed. We had him pick out rewards in the beginning (our rewards are now things like go to the park go to the zoo etc but in the beginning it was toys) so we had a bunch of paw patrol toys to earn. We started with just a meal time routine then expanded to much more.
Goally has been work every penny for me and my developmentally disabled teen son. So thankful!
I’m in love with the device. Last nights bedtime routine was so much easier than normal! We are working through our homeschool routine now. I have all the necessary routines set up and keep setting up more as I think of them! Can’t wait to order two more for my other two children!
We've only had our goally for one day, but you made online schooling and maintaining a schedule so much easier for our seven year old. He loves keeping up with his points and cashing them in. I highly recommend the goally!
My family started Home Schooling this summer to catch up and we've used Goally for the last 6 weeks. It has made our lives so much easier. The kids know what they need to do
Goally is out here saving our LIFE in this lockdown!
Tonight is the first night in MONTHS I haven't had to fight with my son to get in the tub! He had his Goally set within his sight (but not near the tub) so he can see his countdown and he got right in!
I have one and love it!
I just wanted to let you know how much we just LOVE the Goally. Our fourth grader has been using it for over two weeks now. It has allowed him to see how self reliant he can be. But more importantly it has taken the nagging out of routines which helps keep our family from starting the day with frustrations. Thank you, I wasn’t sure this was the best fit for us but I am so glad we decided to try it.
Our ASD/ADHD 9 year old daughter uses this. We homeschool and put her assignments on this as well as her chores and bedtime and morning routine. We have not had to remind her to do things and she actually sits and does her schoolwork without getting up. She earned enough points for fun rewards. I recommend it.
I instantly fell in love this morning when my son used it to get ready for our day all by himself. It took 1/3 as long as normal since I didn’t have to get myself ready and keep telling him all the things he needed to do and make sure he did it. Worth every penny right there.
We have had Goally for a day now. I am so impressed! Here is what we have already noticed:
1. My son is happier and less stressed.
2). He is excited and motivated to earn points and doesn’t want any distractions when he is “following his Goally.”
3. Completing tasks and routines without help!
4. He did his reading last night because Goally told him to.
5. Already increased in desirable behaviors.

My son is loving his Goally. He sometimes doesn’t do things in order but he completes the task. He has IDD as well as Autism and ADHD. The bar graph for the rewards gives him a real time feeling of when he is working for a “big” reward. That was something very difficult for him to do before. Now I can send him upstairs to start his bedtime routine and he does it himself. I never expected to see him willing to brush his own teeth!!!
Our morning routines have been so much easier thanks to Goally! This is our 2nd week and it has made a huge difference already. Thank you!
I received this product today and it’s life changing for my daughter. I want to be a sales rep for your company. So many families need this product.
We have been using Goally for two weeks with my ADHD daughters, 6 and 8. It has been transformative. They are doing their routines 90% by themselves now and were needing constant redirection and reminders before. They are also doing chores more frequently than before. Thank you! I will be promoting the heck out of this product on social media as it has changed our family’s life for the better!
I bought a Goally for my five year old just to help him get some independence with morning and evening routines, after seeing ads on social media. My three year old was jealous so I got him one too. Both of them are relatively “neurotypical” so I wasn’t sure this product was really for me, but it has been profoundly life changing for my family. It has really made daily maintenance routines (getting dressed and ready for school, getting ready for bed, putting stuff away when we get home from school) smooth and about 90 percent less painful. It’s been SO FUN and it really takes me out of the equation - it teaches them that we do our work, we help with the household, and then we get our fun stuff (screen time, treats, etc). But it’s not ME that’s making them do the work, it’s this very objective little device. It’s their choice and they get all the ownership.I’ve been telling all my girlfriends who have kids of similar ages about it - it simplifies the checklist concept that is so popular.
My son was excited to receive his Goally yesterday! I love that you included the weather feature and that the camera/photos can also be used! Those features make it fun for kids; my son already loved checking the weather forecast and taking pics on my phone, which made it motivating for him to start using his Goally right away...he thinks it is cool that he now has his own “phone.” Lastly, thank you for all your support getting started!
So far this has been making a HUGE improvement to our days. For the third night in a row, our son has gone to bed WITHOUT me having to lay down with him and go to bed too. (So THIS is what ME time is like? I can understand the hype - it’s nice!!) He’s also been making progress towards potty training thanks to Goally. I’m so optimistic!
We just received our Goally. We already love it. I’m really excited to use it for morning and bedtime routines!
