Ever since “Bug” has been born we have been working on a savings account for him and to be honest the little man has quite a chunk in the bank for a three year old. But, now that he is old enough to “earn” his money we thought that it would be a great idea to get him his own bank to keep his change and dollars in before we go and deposit them into his savings. So while I was looking for the perfect bank for him that would not only hold his cash but we wanted something to help teach him about money in general so when I found the Zillionz Real-Money Deluxe ATM Savings Bank I knew this was the bank we had been searching for and I was thrilled when I was given the opportunity to review one!

“Bug” was sent a Real-Money Deluxe ATM Savings Bank from Zillionz to review and it could not have arrived at a better time, which was just in time for his 3rd birthday party and as you all know there are going to be those family members who are going to be giving cash to the birthday kiddo so I thought why not let him start his bank on his birthday! I kept the Real-Money Deluxe ATM Savings Bank hid from him until we got home from the party and he was thrilled when he found out he had his own debit card (yes, it’s really sad when a 3yr old knows exactly what a debit card is and how it works!).
We immediately opened it up and got it all set up for him with his own very special pin number we let him choose, now he isn’t old enough to remember it for himself so when he goes to use his ATM we have to help him with his pin but it’s good practice for when he does get older. I have to say my favorite feature of the Real-Money Deluxe ATM Savings Bank is the fact that it counts up his money as he puts it in the bank so he knows exactly how much he has and that is super important since we have a set limit on how much we keep him at home before we make a deposit, so we always know when it’s time for a trip to the real bank.
It didn’t take “Bug” long to figure out how to use the Real-Money Deluxe ATM Savings Bank just like a pro! He has spent countless hours playing with the machine and I am proud to say that he is starting to recognize the coins and their values better now since he has been using the bank. I think the withdraw feature is awesome as well so if he is wanting a special toy like say he was after his birthday once he reaches the amount he needs he can withdraw it out of his bank and it still keeps up with what he has in the bank just like real ATM! I have to say that this bank is one of the best on the market for little ones to learn about saving and keeping track of their money!
“Bug” and I both love his Real-Money Deluxe ATM Savings Bank from Zillionz and I can guarantee you that it’s seen its fair share of use over the past month and will be getting much more in the coming months and years! In my opinion I think every kid should have one of these to help them track their money and teach them the much needed responsibility they are so desperately going to need when they get older to save as much money as possible.
The Real-Money Deluxe ATM Savings Bank would make a wonderful gift for any child. It’s fun and very easy to use an not to mention a wonderful learning tool!
