I bought "2 giving banks" for my children for this coming Christmas. My girl is 7 and my boy is 6. I can't wait to give them and can see them using the banks for many years to come. These would make perfect birthday gifts for kids in your Sunday School class. They are an excellent teaching tool. I had wondered how easy it'd be to take the money out and each slot has a separate opening on the bottom. My children "tithe" on Thursdays at their christian school so the tithe section will be awesome. We pay our children allowance weekly in coins so the "giving bank" will be a tangible way of seeing that not all the money is for toys/spending. Very thick and sturdy plastic (durable).
I ordered a bunch of these for Christmas presents. I plan on giving the children 10 single dollars so they can practice distributing the money between the church, savings and spending sections. They look great to me. I'm glad I opened them up because I went ahead and had to apply the stickers that went on the front of the bank. I anticipate the children being happy with them!
I bought this product three years ago and recently bought three more for my family's kids. Not only is this a very durable product, it is such a great learning tool for children. What better way to teach about giving, saving and spending? Plus they get to decorate it!
