Within the thread in my article “Teaching Kids about Money“, a representative from Moonjar left a comment regarding their Moonjar product for children. As I have a little bambino crawling around the house, I emailed the rep with a few questions and they offered to send me a sample product for me (and the little one) to try.
What is The Moonjar?
It’s a new-age piggy bank that allows children to separate and store their money into 3 categories; spending, savings, and sharing. They offer two different Moonjar products, the classic and the standard moneybox. The classic moneybox is the stronger version as it is made from hard plastic and tin. The standard version is made completely of paper.
What Samples Did We Get?
I received the package indicated in the picture above. That is,
The Classic Moonjar (tin base, plastic top)
The Standard Moonjar (paper)
The Children Storybook that explains “How the Moonjar was Made.”
Where to Buy?
If you would like to purchase this product, here are the stores:
- Canadian Distributor
- U.S Distributor
I think that the concept is a great idea that can help teach kids about money. It helps reinforce that money is not only for spending, but should also be used for saving and sharing. I’m looking forward to using my Moonjar to help teach my little one about saving, spending and sharing.
Although the price of the Moonjars are a bit on the high side (IMO), I personally prefer the Classic Moonjar as it’s made of tin thus more resilient than the paper version. If you’re interested in doing more research, check out their site along with their testimonials.
