More pocket money than ever for Aussie kids

AUSSIE kids are getting more than ever in the amount of cash parents are handing over as pocket money.

The average Aussie child gets $11.30 per week with Queensland children getting $9.20 and NSW children $13.50.

But new research showed regional children are getting about $4 less a week than their city counterparts.

The Heritage Bank Australian Pocket Money Survey asked parents from all over Australia to give insight into the pocket money dealings within their families.

The survey revealed putting money away for savings is now the number one use for pocket money - taking over from buying toys and lollies.
