Working hard and saving money is something I plan on teaching our six year old and fifteen month old early on. Both of them have piggy banks in their rooms and our six year old likes to make lists of what he is saving for. I recently came across a wonderful company called Moonjar that helps teach children to save, spend and share.
The Moonjar Story:
Moonjar LLC was established in 2001 by Eulalie Scandiuzzi, a Seattle native, to inspire and incorporate strong financial values and practices into everyday life.
The name Moonjar comes from the idea of “Shooting for the Moon” and creating Big Dreams, along with the ancient custom of placing hopes and dreams in a jar.
Today Moonjar is a vibrant young company working to bring financial literacy to children and families around the globe. We believe the time to start the conversation about money is now and the way to start the conversation is through Saving, Spending and Sharing.
All our products are trademarked, copyrighted, patented and created with recyclable materials.
Classic Moonjar Moneybox for review. This moneybox has won a number of awards including Dr. Toy 2007 Best Products Winner and Nappa Gold National Parenting Publications Awards to name a couple. Each Classic Moonjar Moneybox measures 5.5 X 5 inches, is made out of a durable tin with removable lids and comes with a family guide and passbook. What I like best about this moneybox is the fact that three very important things are condensed into one yet still separated. With the current piggy banks that the kids have they are learning to save up for something special they want to buy and they know the importance of giving to others in need. However, the Moonjar Moneybox allows them to decide which area they would like to place their money each and every time they put money in the box. It will require them to step away from simply dropping change into a slot and become more aware as well as think a little harder about what they want to do with the money earned and/or given to them.
Family Kits and money related games. All of Moonjar's products are reasonably priced which makes teaching children the importance of money more appealing. Moonjar moneyboxes can be purchased directly at moonjar.com or Amazon. I highly recommend Moonjar to any and everybody who is passionate about teaching our youth the importance of making wise decisions regarding money!
