Money Savvy Pig giveaway! 9/21 ***CLOSED!!!***

***CLOSED!!!***

Win your own Msgen Money Savvy Piggy Bank in your choice of color! 
Even if you don't win this giveaway, you'll appreciate knowing that you can buy one for only 16.99! Not mentioned/available for this giveaway is the Platinum piggy bank, which is usually 19.99 and is clear. Its actually the cutest! But- right now, it is the same price as the other two. 








Money Savvy Pig is available in bluepinkgreenred or purple!
Ours is purple.
Why I like this.


   I think this is great. First of all- a traditional Piggy bank is not for every child. Giana is only 6, and she is like a bull in a china shop! Most kids are though. She can break anything! This is plastic- but thick sturdy plastic. I could probably throw it out of a moving car and it probably wouldn't break. Not that I would try that. 


   Anyway, it's clear, so the child can see their money inside, which gives them more of a sense of accomplishment on their saving. I like that it is available in all those different colors. A lot of Piggy Banks are more for decoration. They certainly do not have different compartments. Each compartment opens up on the pigs "foot" and it has a twist off plastic lid that locks into place and slides out. It was cool, because I don't think it will come out easily own its on. But also, not too easily where she would lose it. The pigs different sections are separated at his belly, shoulders & rump. 


   I helped her split her money into different piles: quarters, dimes, nickles, etc. Then, we put even amounts into each compartment. I told her, it's her money though. She can use it on what she wants- so long as she can afford it, and is responsible with whatever she buys.


   The only thing that baffles me is the "Invest" section. For me, personally, it seems a little out of a six year olds grasp. Not only did I have a hard time explaining what it means to her, but she also didn't really "get' it. But the save, spend, and donate. Now that's pretty cool. 


   What Giana liked best? The stickers. The bank comes with a sheet of little stickers that have little plastic circles to set them into. The circles are above the words.  It has pictures on the stickers of things you might spend or donate or save for.


   She is always wanting to put her change into the little boxes at gas stations and grocery stores. Once, at Wal-Mart, there was a thing you put your money in to donate and watch it sling around in circles as it goes down. I think it was a St.Jude one, actually. But she put about three dollars (in change) in it. She said it was for the sick kids. She even stuck her one dollar bills in it.  She actually made me feel guilty. It was all the money she had and it was so self-less. This was very recently too. I was very proud of her. So she is not too young to understand money. She is a very bright child. This will only help contribute to her learning and understanding money.


 Now it's time to start this allowance and really teach her how to use this bank.


Win your own MSGen Money Savvy Piggy Bank in your choice of color!
