CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Two simple, fast-paced games to improve valuable math skills that kids will use all of their lives like making change and budgeting money. Includes fascimiles of real U.S. money plus tips that parents and teachers can use to connect Moneywise play with the real world. For two players.
Created by a volunteer math aide in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Moneywise Kids contains two simple, fun games that will help kids understand how money works, in terms of dollar value and spending power. In the first game, Bill Maker, kids take turns rolling the dice and earning dollars that are commensurate with the numbers that come up: roll a 2 and a 6, for instance, and you get $8. As they accrue wealth with each turn, players exchange smaller bills for larger ones until someone winds up with $100. In the second game, Bill Breaker, each player starts with $100 and earns more money with each turn, but players must also draw "moneywise markers"--bills for such real-life expenses as food, medical care, and taxes--and make payments along the way. And watch out for those hard-luck chips that mean big bills. The player who collects all six markers and still has $100 in savings is the winner. The game is lively and only lightly competitive, with an accent on grasping the mysteries of dollars and cents. --Tom KeoghSee all Product description

Monopoly is better to teach them how an investment quickly makes you passive income regardless of circumstances. As is Rich Dad Poor Dad games which introduce them to stocks, bonds, real estate etc and how to get above the rat race. Def recommend Money Wise Kids as an introduction to managing money. It says ages 8 and up- but my kids could have played this at 5 or 6 since they've been playing child monopoly since they were 5 and we include them in many discussions on how money is managed. My kids request to play this game several times a month.
Money Kids will keep Diego challenged and motivated. During my visits, I have him count coins and tell me how much he has. Then I have him show me the equivalent coins for one dollar. He then places the money in one of his piggy banks. Diego is motivated to go to college. His parents support his goal.
I tell Diego that my expectation is that he will graduate college. I expect his older brother to do so as well. I have high expectations for them both...as well as lots of books, games, and other educational materials.
Of course the cost of items in the second version of the game is not realistic. That is not the point. What matters is that they figure out when they buy something that costs $15, they know which denominations of bills they can use to purchase it. Do they want to break a $50? How much change will you get back? How many ways can you break a $50? Etc.
Well worth the price.
