Chinese New Year is a season full of prosperity and luck. There are certain characters and animals that bring extra good fortune and success, and one of them is definitely the money toad!

This feng shui money toad is not just for decoration. It symbolises the flow of money and people believe that it helps to attract wealth and abundance, as well as protect you from any bad luck.

You cannot simply place the money toad wherever you please

It is believed that placing the money toad in a wealth position, such as the corner of the house that is diagonally opposite the entrance, will bring prosperity. The toad should be positioned respectfully, meaning it shouldn’t be on the floor but placed on a raised surface instead.

There’s a fun fact about the money toad: it only has three legs

Unlike a real toad that has four legs, the money toad only has three. According to a Chinese folklore, the wife of one of the eight immortals stole the elixir of mortality from Hsi Wang Mu, the Goddess of the West. She then fled on a full moon and drank the elixir which turned her into a toad. But because the Gods were compassionate, they allowed her to keep the tail of a tadpole rather than two legs of a developed toad.

Now you might be wondering, how is this money toad relevant to winning RM188k?!

Well, this CNY, Maxis has a very special edition of a popular trivia game among Malaysians and the toad has a part to play in it…

 Maxis presents “Dooit for Family”, a family edition of Dooit Live, the popular in-app trivia game show that will bring lots of fun (and prosperity) to your family this CNY.
