Moonjar Money Box Review/Giveaway CLOSED

#20 Judy

I have always thought teaching your little ones the importance of money is great. The problem is getting them to have fun while doing so and really understand it. With the Moonjar it makes it fun and teaches them what money should be used for what. Since my little girl is in the first grade this is the perfect time to teach her.

The story behind Moonjar: 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. They 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 of their products are trademarked, copywritten, patented and created with recyclable materials. 


The Moonjar has 3 different containers that are held together by a huge yellow rubber band that can be taken off and the containers then can come apart. With each container they each represent something different: Spend, Share, and Save. There are such important values to have when dealing with money and what better way to do but when they are young and absorbing so much valuable knowledge right now. The Moonjar is valued at $25.00.

Moonjar offers several differnt products that can help you teach your little ones the value of money and at the same time have fun with your kids. They do offer curricular for teachers to use with their students in their classes from K-6.  Standard Moonjar Moneybox, Classic Moonjar Moneybox, Conversations To Go - the Games that Have Everyone Talking, The ABC's of Money book and CD, How the Moonjar Was Made book, Family and Classroom Kits for financial literacy with award winning Curriculum..
Moonjar Conversations to Go is the game that has everyone talking and having fun. Filled with 100 delicious and thought-provoking conversation starters, it's a great choice for groups of all ages and interests! Sure to become indispensable at family reunions, dinner tables, classrooms, backseats, leaky tents, cozy cabins or wherever you go to have fun. 

The other one is the  Conversations to GO "The Game That Questions Money" Put the compelling and often controversial topic of money right on the table and see what happens as you share your opinions and describe your dreams. Filled with questions about wealth, thrift and luck, it's a rich experience for the whole family!

These would be great to have for our vacation this year when we are in the vehicle for 9 hours. These product's are valued at $16.00

My thoughts on the Moonjar is for one I have to give it a A+ with the ease of teaching little ones the value of money. We all want our kids to grow up and make the right decisions when it comes to money when they are adults. If we start at a young age there is a chance they will better follow what we teach. My little girl has learned quit a bit from this already. She knows the difference between each section. Now when she is putting her money up she is deciding what she wants where now. I am so happy I had the opportunity to review this product so I could teach my little one the value of money in a way that is perfect for a little kid.
