This game is geared for older kids, maybe those age 4 and up.

It apparently works well for kids who don't like doing chores!

      I love the Melissa and Doug chart. We have it at our home. Yes. I believe in rewarding children for doing chores. I pay them (just like we are paid for our work) and require them to save a certain percentage for savings that goes to the bank every week.
