Alice LOVES soccer! This little girl carries her soccer ball everywhere, on the off chance that the park is in her future!! So, when I had the chance to review the Money Savvy Soccer Ball Bank I JUMPED at it!!! I figure that if she loves her bank she will use it! She does love it!! ‘Course it took some convincing that this was not a soccer ball she can kick and play with!! I love that Money Savvy Generation has designed a financial tool to truly teach kids how to manage their money!! This is a SMART bank!!!
Money Savvy Generation’s new Money Savvy Soccer Ball™ is the latest addition to their award-winning family of financial management products for children. MSG has a complete line of banks designed for kids. This one, like the other banks, has four see-through chambers marked: Save, Spend, Donate and Invest. BRILLIANT!!! The Money Savvy Bank is designed to teach children, in a fun and engaging way, concepts like financial goal-setting and delayed gratification, and that there is more to money than just spending. I truly believe that the earlier you start teaching children about money and financial responsibility the better. I believe the kids will grow up with better money smarts!!
Each bank includes a set of glittery goal setting-stickers and a guide on how to get started. I love that the soccer ball bank is large, Alice will collect a lot of dough in this bank.
Each of the different chambers empties separately on the bottom of the bank. So it’s easy to empty the individual chambers as needed.
In these times money management has became very complicated. Even adults fall victim to money management issues these days. We all know that those ‘rainy days’ happen much to often and so many people don’t have a nest egg to depend on! We owe it to our children to teach them the skills needed for later in life.
I don’t know about you, but I learn much faster with the hands on experiences, watching Alice absorb everything around her I know she will learn from hands on as well!! Now while Alice isn’t understanding the whole saving, spend, invest and donate. I do honestly believe that she will learn more as we continue to show her the bank and spread the money around the different chambers. Right now, Alice’s favorite thing is to get money from every adult that walks in the house and she spreads that money around the bank. So, I would say, Alice is on her way to learning about money!! I believe this is a good first step to learning about money for any and EVERY child!
