Here are some poodle puppy growth charts that I have found over the years.  These are pretty good.  No they do not go by weight.  Remember: there are NO weight restrictions on poodles only height so really weight doesnt have a lot to do with the poodle.
Toys are 10 inches in height and under.
Miniatures are over 10 inches to 15 inches.
Standards are over 15 inches.  This by the breed standards for both AKC and UKC.
 
NOTE: A poodles height is measured from the ground up to the top of the withers (shoulder blades).
