About

ZanyBank originated as a way to teach kids the value of money by bridging the gap between the adult and child world. According to Forbes.com, " children as young as three years old can grasp financial concepts like saving and spending. And ... kids’ money habits are formed by age 7." (The 5 Most Important Money Lessons to Teach Your Kids, Forbes). As parents, we tend to act like an open line of credit for our kids. We are reluctant to give our kids actual money, as they tend to lose it, so we hold onto their earnings for them. Meanwhile, our kids have no real understanding of what they have earned and how much they are spending.

ZanyBank has created the ZanyDollar to help overcome this issue. When kids earn money, parents can now pay them in their own family currency. Children can hold onto their earned ZanyDollars, learning how to keep track of them, how to save them, and how to spend them. Kids can use a wallet or a purse to keep their ZanyDollars with them, so that when they see that something special, they can cash them in with their parents, who can then purchase the item in the real world with actual money. If your child loses their ZanyDollars along the way, they have lost value, but you haven't. This is a safe way to teach your child financial responsibility.

ZanyDollars are play money and have no financial value in the real world, however, within your household, they can have any value you want! Customize ZanyDollars to reflect your household name, your child's name,  and their personality, then use them within your household like money. ZanyDollars can be used to pay your kids for chores, reward them for being good, holiday gifts, and more! Next time your child wants something at the store, let them pay you in ZanyDollars. The nice thing about ZanyDollars is you don't have to worry about your kids losing them or other kids stealing them, because they are worthless to the rest of the world, so your child can hold onto their own money and start learning value and financial responsibility. Have more than one kid? Personalize ZanyDollars for each so they never get mixed up.

ZanyDollars also work great for businesses! Place your business name as the "Authority" and give them to customers to use as a coupon on their next visit, or issue them to employees as a reward. Want a fully custom design? Please contact us for more information.

Don't want to use ZanyDollars as coupons or rewards? Well, they also make great gag gifts, note paper, and game money. Try using Zany Dollars instead of chips for your next poker game, or replace traditional play money from popular board games like Monopoly with play money that looks and feels more authentic.

Additional Information:

  • Each ZanyDollar has a universally unique number printed on it, and each set comes with a log of the numbers included. This allows for tracking ZanyDollars as they are issued, so you know who they were issued to and if any are missing (great for businesses or sneaky kids).
  • ZanyDollars are printed on a bond paper, which feels more like traditional money. It is also stronger than traditional paper, so it holds up great to kids!
  • ZanyDollars have several items that can be personalized to make your custom ZanyDollar, allowing for millions of possible combinations!
  • Each Stack or Half Stack comes banded and shrink wrapped, so your ZanyDollars will be crisp when they arrive.

After using ZanyDollars for some time now, I have to say that we love them! It enchances our child's mathematical skills and teaches her how to be responsible with her finances. Furthermore, it helps my husband and I stay worry free about the loss of real money should our daughter misplace or lose her wallet. I think it's a cute added benefit that we can personalize the ZanyDollars. Our child loves that it has her name and favorite animal (panda) on them. My husband is even interested in purchasing seperate sets for our family game nights! The company is top notch as well and really looks out for their customers needs. I highly recommend them!

We decided to replace our simple gift certificates with ZanyDollars (or as we call them Liberty Fitness Bucks), a few months ago. It has created a unique and fun way to promote our business and reward our clients. ZanyDollars can be used to pay for memberships, buy merchandise, or to buy snacks and drinks. Kids and adults can earn them for helping out, going above and beyond, and as prizes at events. Their unique numbers allows us to be confident that our Liberty Fitness Bucks are controlled and tracked, and we never have to worry about fraudulent duplicates. Also, the cost for a custom product is unparalleled! We will proudly display and use our custom ZanyDollars daily!
