The number rhyme system is a type of Mnemonic Peg System where digits are assigned mnemonic images based on words that rhyme with the number. For example, the number two rhymes with shoe.

Some common number rhyme images are:

  • 0 = hero
  • 1 = bun or gun
  • 2 = shoe
  • 3 = tree
  • 4 = door
  • 5 = hive
  • 6 = sticks
  • 7 = heaven (you could use an image of an angel to distinguish it from a gate)
  • 8 = bait (fishing), gate
  • 9 = wine, line, or mine
