Thank you for checking out my Big Belly Banks! My name is John Chesnut. Years ago I was involved in an accident in which I was struck by a car and rammed, full throttle, into a parked truck. I had multiple surgeries and was unable to work my chosen profession. Penniless I moved into a Tipi that I built in the woods near my home town of Elizabethtown, NY. I started making children's name puzzles and went to craft shows to sell them.
In 1993 I invented a "Money Eating" coin bank for my 5 children. Watching the money going down the long neck made me laugh. I took them to a craft show and sold 970 of them in 4 days! I obtained patents and went into business making and selling my Big Belly Banks. That was in 1993. I believe that my banks have stood the test of time because they are: Quality, Fun, Educational, Decorative, Personalized, and a Keepsake. Give a toy and it's played with for awhile. Give a Big Belly Banks and it becomes a treasured keepsake.
Save on shipping. I charge a flat rate of $14.99 per order! Order as many banks as you want and when shipped to the same address pay only $14.99. We ship orders within 48 business hours by FedEx Home Delivery. This is a fast and reliable service.
The banks use a plastic belly that is very durable. The two halves unscrew so that you can easily empty it and use it over and over. The Belly holds 987 quarters or about $120 in mixed change.
We are a small family business located in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. Every bank is handcrafted using certified safe materials. We appreciate every order!!
