The 11-year-old children got scared and handed over their money.
One of the youth chased the car as it drove away and the teens tossed back some of the cash.
The kids estimate they lost at least $13.50 to the thieves, described as two guys wearing blue hoodies and skinny jeans and three teenage girls.
Parents of the children say a kind person donated $20 at the police station in Strongsville to make up for the theft.
