One slot piggy banks have been around for....centuries. But the world has changed. Now we have a highly sophisticated financial system, a system whose complexity has outstripped the ability of most adults, many of whom grapple with credit card debt, even bankruptcy.
Personal finance education needs to start young. How? With the same universally loved childhood toy, the piggy bank....but with a 21st century twist! The Money Savvy Pig piggy bank has four chambers, one for each of the four money management choices a child should be taught from the time they are small. They are SAVE, SPEND, DONATE, and INVEST. Money empties through the feet. Also included is a Parent/Child brochure with easy to follow instructions. Measures 8" X 5.5" X 5"
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
A rating of Money Savvy Piggy Bank
Posted 12/19/2012 by DEANNA DELAGARZA
I bought the Money Savvy Piggy Bank for my 7 year old son for his B-day several months ago and my oldest which is 18 said he would like one also to help him manage his money so I ordered him one for Christmas and I'm sure he will love it.
I loved the concept of this bank as it will help teach my child to budget, delay gratification, think of others and work towards a goal.
The design is good, but the plastic feels VERY prone to shattering. I can see it easily being destroyed by a simple fall.
I liked some of the category stickers, but felt there could be a few more useful ones for younger children. College is very far off for a 5 year old.
