Big Belly Banks Review and Giveaway *Closed*


My boys love collecting loose change they find around the house. Trevor will actually gather it all up and put it in a bowl or something of that nature to keep it all together. One day I was on the search for a fun piggy bank for them to put all their change in.. That's when I came across Big Belly Banks.

I remembered a couple months ago when we took a field trip to the library with Brayden's preschool class and they actually had two Big Belly Banks there and let all the kids put a couple quarters in each. I remember all the kids having so much fun with it that I knew this was exactly what we needed at our house.

Big Belly Banks are handcrafted, American made, wooden coin banks created by John Chestnut and his wife Cheryl for their 5 children. They come in all kinds of different characters and colors, from blue and pink dinosaurs, to trains, flowers and even sports themed ones. They can be purchased in 2 different sizes, 20" or 23", and are also personalized for FREE!

      

We received the Green Dinosaur Big Belly Bank to review. My boys were so thrilled when it arrived, they ran around the house collecting all the loose change they could find and immediately started feeding the dinosaur. We've had it for about a week and they are still entertained by it, they're always so excited when they find another coin for their dinosaur.

Not only are they fun, but they're also teaching my boys to save money which is wonderful. Because they are wooden, Big Belly Banks are very durable! Trevor drags ours all over the house and it's still in perfect shape. I can tell it'll last them for years!

Big Belly Banks would make a perfect gift for children of all ages and can be purchased on their website for $39.95 for the 20" and $49.95 for the 23" ones.

**Win It**
John Chestnut, creator of Big Belly Banks, has very generously offered one of my readers a Big Belly Bank of their own.




Disclosure: I was provided with a Big Belly Bank for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
