I highly recommend! I bought one for my son years ago and was so disappointed that I didn't think ahead and buy one for my newborn at that time. I recently started looking for another one with no luck until now. I bought 2 this time, one for my daughter and one for my grandson. I love these banks! They are great learning tools! Yes, you must help your children when they are very young. But they catch on and can use it easily after a while. Thank you for offering a great product!
I originally bought this when my son was 8. I also was disappointed with the fact that we had to manually do everything and keep track of the keys. I misplaced the directions and cannot find any information online about how to change the percentages. That part was very confusing and complicated. There are several buttons to push for each and every "transaction" making it a very frustrating "bank" for us. For my younger two children, I think we'll do things the old fashioned way and count our money, setting the tithe, savings and spending into their own banks.
After purchasing this product for one grandchild I purchased a different brand/type for another so they could tell the difference. I was completely disappointed in the other and went back to this product for the other grandchild. It workds great, is easy for them to use, and I love the featues.
I was thinking this would automatically count the money, but it doesn't. You have to enter the amount of everything you deposit, and how much you take out so I can see that there can easily be errors. I also thought it would separate into three banks, but it just tells you how much you can take out of the big area. It does tell you how much you have for each thing, which I like, but I think I would have gotten Larry Burkett's old bank for that.
