Feeding Buddy - Big Belly Banks - Review and Giveaway


I am so excited, that I really do not know where to start...
Let me start with how this came about...

I was online and someone mentioned "Big Belly Banks."
Well, I had never heard of it, so of course, I had to stop and look them up.
LET ME TELL YOU.
These are just THE CUTEST banks that EVERY child needs!
Yes, I said it!
Every child needs one! :)

These are not just some run of the mill bank, they are all handcrafted and AMERICAN MADE!
(You know how I am about the AMERICAN MADE items!)
Anywho...
I looked at each and every single one of them...
Just thinking how much fun we would have with it...

So, I emailed and John (the inventor) and we discussed sharing Big Belly Banks with you!
Let me just say, how cool is it that he created these banks for his 5 children...
Whoo, he must be tired, 5 kids... Wow...
Moving along...

These banks...
They are wooden...
( I love that idea, wooden just seems more of a classic keepsake)
They have the patented coin track.
See, they are not just basic banks..
They are fun!
You put your coin in and it slips and slides down the track until it reaches the "belly" destination.
You see, the opening is up top, be it a mouth or what not...
Then, you drop your coin in.
(It takes quarters to penny's)
It zig zags down the track until it drops in the belly.
The belly is a clear hard plastic bubble.

The package arrived safe and secure...
With extra packing around the wooden area and plenty of space around the belly...
You can see they take pride not only in the production, but also in the shipment and presentation!
Broxton received the blue dinosaur.
He IMMEDIATELY named him Buddy.
(I am guessing that is from watching Dinosaur Train?)
We went and got a few coins...
Then, he had to "feed Buddy."
This went on and on...
Each time, Broxton would yell, "I DID IT!"
Just to see that expression and hear him yell, I would have given him a million dollars in coins, if I had it!
Come on, you don't think that is a cute "I DID IT!" expression?!

Worried about how to get your money out?
Well, there is a bolt type thing holding the belly bank in place, just unscrew it..
Take your money and screw it back closed!
Pretty simple!

I like that it is more than just a bank.
It can also be considered decor.
They come in 2 different sizes.
We have "Buddy" sitting right beside Broxton's door.
(Although, when Buddy first got here, Broxton had to get him and bring him in the living room to play cars with him!)
He doesn't weigh that much, empty...
But you can imagine the weight will quickly add up once the belly gets full!
I just love this whole idea!

This would be great as a gift for that someone you love!

Your choice of a Big Belly Bank.

  57. Oh, these are toooo cute! It's so hard to pick...but I think we'd probably go with the flower one. (http://bank.bigbellybanks.com/product.php?productid=56&cat=5&page=1) Very cute. What a fun way to save money & teach your LO about saving.

    I think my e-mail attaches but just in case: heather(DOT)knisely @ gmail(DOT)com
    Gotta watch out for those pesky bots out there hence the funny typed e-mail.
