Money Savvy Pig Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to review the Money Savvy Pig from the Money Savvy Generation.


About the Money Savvy Pig and Money Savvy Generation:
"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

We are the leaders in personal finance education for children.
Money Savvy Generation develops innovative products to help parents, educators and others teach kids the skills of basic personal finance. We strive to empower kids to take control of their financial lives and, in turn, their futures.
Leading the way in all categories:
We sell more 4-chambered savings banks (pigs, cows and footballs) than anyone else in the world.
Our scripted curriculum format is preferred by elementary and middle-school teachers.
We have more personal finance content (curriculum, activity books, seminars, television programming, songs and other products) for elementary school children than anyone else.
Our personal finance products for children have won numerous awards from educators, the press and trusted third party organizations that rate children's products.
We have more published studies demonstrating the effectiveness of our curriculum than all other competitors combined.
We are the first and only company with personal finance blog aimed at helping parents teach their kids about money.
Our products are used on six continents, with new markets opening all the time."

What we thought: 4 year old A is learning a lot about money lately, especially about earning and saving, so this bank was the perfect tool to teach her even more about her finances:) She has piggy banks we started for her when she was born, but we just recently started encouraging her to help out to earn money to save for a particular item. She had been using a Ziploc bag because I wanted her to be able to actually see her money adding up, so the Money Savvy Pig was a definite upgrade. I love that there are 4 chambers because that opened up even more dialogue to show her there is more she can do with her money than just save it. She is really loving filling her pig and it really does help that she can see the different chambers and where her money is going. I know this bank will continue to help her learn how to handle money wisely as she gets older. The Money Savvy Pig is a wonderful teaching tool that kids are sure to enjoy. ABCD Diaries gives the Money Savvy Pig an A+!
