Monstros Money Box *Review and Giveaway*

Monstros Money Boxes are a quirky yet clever idea to make saving money fun for children. As soon as my two receive any money they are desperate to spend it, but when putting coins away suddenly involved feeding a monster it definitely encouraged them to save!



We selected the Khaki design to receive, although there are several styles to choose from, and it was an instant hit with Jamster in particular. The cuddly monster is made from a variety of soft fabrics which gives it a nice look and texture and it has weighted feet so that it can be sat upright with ease. It's also easy to clean with a damp sponge if needed.



The money box is easy to use and the chunky zip and twist open bottom make it ideal for younger children to have too. There is no stiff rubber bung to pull out like alternative versions.
The idea of putting coins into a monsters mouth and watching them 'poop' it back out was highly amusing to the Mini Mes and Jamster was keen to share this with everyone! It's definitely a great novelty gift idea as it is fun yet practical.

Quick demo of it in action...


If there are issues with siblings trying to 'borrow' money this would be a great solution as it can be placed among other soft toys and remain a secret safe - they wouldn't notice that it was a money box at first glance. This would also be a good idea for adults trying to hide valuables at home or away safely and discreetly.



The RRP is £12.50 which I feel is good value, especially for the quality of the product, and the way that it has helped the Mini Mes to save which is always beneficial.
