MoonJar Review and Giveaway

I was given a moonjar for review and two to giveaway to my readers!



I am very excited about this product. Moonjar is a teaching tool for kids to learn about money management. I received a Classic Moon Jar. It is a 3 part tin with removable lids. The 3 part tin/rubberband comes with a family guide to encourage goal setting and discussion and a passbook for the older kids to track the change.

Prior to receiving the MoonJar, we were using a giant yogurt container. If my daughter does things without being asked she can earn coins. I think as a parent it is our responsibility to teach our children about money at a very young age. If they learn now that money does not grow on trees, they are more apt to be responsible and use critical thinking as they get older. My daughter now finds money on the floor or on the sidewalk and she tucks it her her purse until she can get home and save it for a toy.
Every time we empty the saving jar we put it in a bag for her to pay the cashier. When we get home we talk about how good it feels to buy our own toys. We then set a goal for what she is saving for next.

Now with the Moonjar, we have two other categories to talk about. The spend jar is going to be used for saving for a princess, the saving jar is for a Rapunzel doll, and the share jar is going to be used to save money for a toy or coat o take to the neighbood family shelter. We already take her outgrown toys to the shelter so she is familiar with the facility.

If we dont teach our children about money.. they will learn from people or things that they see. Do we want to leave their their impressionable minds and financial views on money to random chance? I want to teach her to be responsible for her own financial future so she doesnt have to be dependant on anyone.


Please go and Like Moonjar on Facebook! They have more products like a book entitled "how the moonjar was made", and a business book for kids. "Noom and Raj start a business, The ABCs of Money." It teaches the ABC's of financial literacy as the characters build a business. These might be in my shopping cart very soon.

For my readers
The first winner I chose will receive the Classic Moon Jar (tin with removable lids)
The second winner I chose will receive the Standard Moon Jar (cardboard jar)
