Teach Kids How To Save With Savings Spree®
The Award-Winning Financial Literacy App for Kids - Available For Download From The App Store.
Savings Spree is a fun App with a serious lesson for children ages 7 and up (younger children can play too with a little help from mom and dad or an older sibling). The game teaches kids how the daily lifestyle choices that they make can add up to big savings or big expenses, depending on how they choose to spend (or not spend) their money. Savings Spree shows kids that they can SAVE their money for short term goals (like a bike or an MP3 player), SPEND wisely by making more frugal decisions, DONATE to others or INVEST money so it will grow to meet future needs like a college education.

Excerpt from the Parents' Choice Review
Our parent testers appreciated how each concept is explained at the beginning of a round in an age appropriate way. For example, the "Wealthy Habits" section demonstrates that "small daily expenses can add up faster than you think" by showing how purchasing just one soda a day for $1.50 can ultimately end up costing $547.50 for the year. The final graphic with soda cups filling the screen and the high dollar amount made a visible impression on our young players.
Savings Spree delivers solid age-appropriate and fun-filled introductory lessons that demonstrate how what we decide to do with our money today affects what we can do with it tomorrow. Some grownups may even learn that giving up daily fancy coffee fixes can help ease the pain at the pump.
The game introduces the concept of earning money for the work that's available and also guides the child through making choices with the money accumulated during the game. Lastly, the game demonstrates that events beyond one's control can cost money, so it's a good idea to have a rainy day fund available to pay for unexpected events.
The game is presented in game show format, taking players through six rounds that test their financial knowledge and help them build money saving skills. The host of the show is the Money Savvy Pig, the trusted, money-smart character central to the award-winning Money Savvy Kids curriculum, also available from Money Savvy Generation.
