Who would love this: Pretend play lovers + parents who need a great tool to teach about money!
If you are looking for anything heirloom, artistically delightful, and melts-your-heart in the sweetest way, then The Curated Parcel is your perfect spot for this! We love the range of products stored in this dreamworld of toys, including this Plant & Pear Co “Tiny Tot Money Set”. This is literally one of the VERY BEST pretend money toys I have EVER seen!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Original-Designed Aussie Pretend Money- This is a one-of-kind Aussie-specific pretend money toy that is rare to find in market! The design of the cash and coins are based on real Australian currency, with meticulously and beautifully laser etched details. The 5 cent coin has a picture of a quill-covered echidna, 10 cent is an ostentatious lyrebird. The platypus image on the 20 cents is a bit hard to discern, just like the real coin where the elusive creature is half-hidden in the swirl of water. The largest 50 cent coin is a 12-sided polygon displaying the Commonwealth Coat of Arms - a shield held by our very native kangaroo and emu! The 1 dollar coin has a picture of 5 kangaroos, and 2 dollar is an image of an aboriginal man and the 5-star constellation of Southern Cross.
Queen Elizabeth II and a small branch of Eucalyptus are shown on the $5 banknote, poet Dame Mary Gilmore on $10, Reverend John Flynn (the aerial medical service pioneer) on $20, and the indigenous inventor and writer David Unaipon on the $50. YES, each of the money items mimic the real Australian currency, and it’s really fun to put the real things side-by-side with the toy for actual comparison!
(2) Wooden Material- I have seen various paper cash and plastic coins types, but never have I seen a pure wooden one! We love this durable, handmade-in-Australia, sustainable timber product!
(3) Awesome Tool To Learn About Money- This toy matches perfectly with the “Tuck Shop Juice Bar” set I shared previously (also available from The Curated Parcel ). The set includes 2 sets each of 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, and an organised storage tray. I love the Australian-specific denominations, making this the FANTASTIC educational resource to teach kids about value of money, buying and selling, in actual Aussie currency units!
LOVE IT! ❤️
