Bigjigs Rail has followed the government’s announcement of the new £1 coin with its own currency for children, the ‘Bigjigs Pound’.
Made from high quality wood, the coin incorporates the old threepenny bit, and includes the new spokesperson for Bigjigs Rail, Station Master Sam.
The coin turns into chocolate when children rub Station Master Sam’s nose, and on impact with water it grows to eight times its original size. The coins can be exchanged for any of the 150 toys in the Bigjigs Rail range.
The ‘Bank of Bigjigs’ is also introducing other forms of payment, including the Bigjigs Bank Note, Bigjigs Credit/Debit Card and PlayPal. The new coin and other forms of payments will be available towards the end of 2014.
