Kids love to save money and the traditional piggy bank is quite popular and very common amongst kids these days but that is still all too tempting to break open and dip into the savings,there is now another alternative called Piggy Smalls and its an app,this way at last ensures your child cant dip into their savings and perhaps learn the value of money,at the end of the week/month you can then give your child some hard real cash to the amount you have given over whichever period suits..This also is another way of having no coins lying around them house which can be annoying at times.
Here is how the app works and its quite simple..give it a go and tell us what you think of it.
1. Every week (or whenever you want) you send a package of money to your kid, from the same app
2. The child opens the package and drags the coins to the piggy.
3. When the child needs real money, you as a parent give him/her real money, and remove the same amount from the virtual piggy. Or you might want to move real money to the child’s own account whenever a certain amount of virtual coins is saved.
The parental functions (adding/removing piggies, sending/removing coins) are protected by a pin code that you create in the beginning so there is no worry about the children getting to do something they are not supposed to.This is a nice built in feature as kids are much more clever these days with the amount of technology that surrounds us.
