  1. Hi, I’ve been saving for ages because my dad only agreed to let me get a hamster if I paid for everything (I’m 13). I have got the hamster now and have enough money for about a year longer. I do get pocket money occasionally , but not much.

    Another idea for you all is using sites ,like music magpie, where you can sell old books and DVDs. I have managed to get about £40 off that so far, but my dad doesn’t really want me using these survey sites. do you have any idea as to how I can convince him to let me do so? if I have a good argument , he says I can use them.

    Any answers will be useful, thank you.

  2. I was looking for 9 year olds

    1. Jess Nardini says:

      The majority of these sites want you to be a teenager just to make sure that you’re safe when you’re online. If you want to sign up, I would suggest talking to your parents or guardians to see if they can help you sign up and maybe create an account for you that you can use on their behalf as long as they’re okay with it and can supervise!

  5. I’m Mina, I’m 12 and I want to take surveys to earn money now, what do I do?

    1. While I’m sorry your parents can’t afford to get you the phone you want, I do think it’s great that you are willing to work to get it for yourself.

    1. You could start by using the ideas in this post. We also have other posts on our site about ways kids and teens can make money. If your apartment has a central location for mail with a bulletin board, perhaps you could post something there about babysitting, cleaning, doing odd jobs, etc., with the permission of your parents, of course. I wish you luck!

    2. you could help your parents like vacuum or do the dishes

  14. I don’t know what to do. I’m trying to save at least £150 pounds for some new clothes, although my dad wont let me because apparently, its not safe.

    1. There are also other posts on our site about ways kids and teens can make money. Maybe some of those would be better options or meet their approval. Check them out and good luck!

  15. Hi,
    I’m 12 years old and I’m trying to save up at least $500 for a dog. But none of these things really helped me because I live in Australia and in a small town where the people are mean and don’t care. The websites are for American kids and the things don’t work for me because no one wants a baby sitter here. Someone please help me and give me advice.

    1. First, do keep in mind this website is in the US. However, there are lots things you could do to make money. There are some other posts on our site with ideas that might help. They include ways to make money recycling paper or selling pop can tabs. There are several on how to make money as a teen or a kid.

      Of course, living in Australia, not all of these will work for you. However, it’s possible some of the options could give you other ideas for ways to make money where you live. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box a bit. You never know, you could invent a whole new business idea! Good luck and don’t give up!

    2. Hi I’m 12 years old as well and I’m glad to see that I’m not the only 12 year old out here. I’ve been wanting to sign up for ‘KidzEyes’ and have been having confusion in the registration process. During the registration process, do I have to enter my parent/guardian’s information or mine? Anyone have any advice for me? Please help me.

      1. And also, on ‘KidzEyes’, how do I receive the money? Does it go to a credit card or can I get it physically? I’m confused and would be very thankful for any help I can get.

      2. anonymous says:

        Money can’t go to a credit card. If you make a bank account they could probably send it there.

  16. Vrimee | EarnFreeDollars says:

    This is an interesting list! Will they send the payments directly to the kids? In that case, how do they verify that the accounts do belong to kids?

  17. Abdullahi Usman Bokani says:

    This sounds interesting for the kids and will prepare them for bigger business consciousness. But, does this apply to children in Africa, or the developed world, where the only reliable address is their parent’s office address because the house address is not reliable?

    1. They could always try it and find out. The only thing they have to lose is the time it took to complete the surveys.
