Product Description

Color: Blue

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

As a purchaser of the Money Savvy Pig for the past several years I am delighted with the new larger size and the ease at which the money can be taken out when it comes time to transfer the money to the bank or to spend on the goal that the child determined. I buy several at a time to have on hand for baby showers. Most of the other guests want to buy one for their children too. I also used them for Christmas gifts for my neighbor girls who were saving money for their summer camp. I've even had teens ask where they can get one. The Money Savvy Pig is a great tool to share with children during Teach Children to Save Week (scheduled for April 26, 2005).

In my mind it is never too early to start teaching my children responsible ways to handle money. At age four they all began earning allowance for completely small chores around the house. Now at their age chores are limited to helping pick up trash around the yard, tossing their dirty clothes in a basket and putting dirty dishes in the sink. For each day they complete at least one of these without complaint, they earn a dollar.

Until we introduced the Money Savvy Pig, every penny their earned was spent right away on what I like to call "junk" meaning that it was something that would be thrown away with a few weeks. Since we only have one pig in blue, I selected my 4 year old son to help me with this project. I carefully instructed him in what the purpose of the bank was for:

1. Save ~ this is where he would put all or a portion of his money to save for larger items or events that he would like to participate in at a later time
2. Spend ~ this section is for his quick spend money which he could use on less expensive items or even gum and a pop if he wished.
3. Donate ~ this is where he would put the amount he wished to giveaway to a worthy cause. Their school always has a selected charity going on and it made this easier to explain.
4. Invest ~ this was the hard part to explain because he is only four. I did however eventually get to where he understood that the money that went in here would eventually buy a savings bond that would grow and grow as he got older. Then when he graduated he could cash these in for things like a car or college.

The Money Savvy Pig itself is separated into four chambers, label as seen above.

My 5-year old was kneeling on the floor when this bank slipped out of his hands and fell about 4 inches onto carpet. It broke in half along the middle seam.

Similar to other reviewers, the concept of the money jar with 4 compartments housed in an old-fashioned piggy bank is terrific. I love being able to teach my kids how to manage money using a cute piggy bank. HOWEVER, the product is poorly designed and made. I bought two of these banks, and one of my banks broke at the seams after one month. Plus, it is challenging to get money out of the holes at the bottom of the bank, particularly bills. Unless you plan to let your children place only coins in the pig, never fill the pig up past the halfway mark, and don't really intend to take money out of the jar, then this won't be a bad product for you. Otherwise, save your money for another product. I'm buying a new system this next go-around for my kids. It won't be as cute, but at least they'll learn how to manage money without worrying about their piggy bank breaking apart or not accessing their dollar bills without ripping it in the process.

Update: I bought a cash box instead which works better than these piggy banks. Don't waste your money on the piggy banks if you expect to take money out at some point. The cash boxes are not as cute, but they are functional which is better than the above piggy banks. There are 4 sections for bills - we use the same save, spend, invest and donate. Ditto with the coins. My kids decorated theirs with stickers and also got a keychain to hold the key to the cashbox, so they are just as happy.

We owned this piggy bank for a few months and had it almost full of coins when we decided to empty the thing. The plastic was beginning to split at the seams, and it was not very easy dumping the coins from each slot out of each foot. Cute idea, not easy to use as a functioning piggy bank.

I decided to start teaching my 7 year old daughter about money, but I could never find anything other than an ordinary bank (of course some made loud noises)! Lots of them are cute, but don't explain anything. I found the Money Savvy Pig and it improves on the traditional "piggy bank" because it has 4 stomachs! My daughter can put coins and bills in all four slots -- save, spend, donate and invest, and I can use the parent guide to teach her what happens to her money in all 4 cases. I love the way the money comes out of his little feet!

I bought these for my two young boys as their first piggy bank. Primarily I liked that they were plastic (thinking they would be unbreakable) but when my 38-inch tall son dropped the empty bank while he was standing (meaning the bank fell about 18 inches to the ground)it broke in several different places. This was on day one, the very first time it fell. Very dissapointed....
