Teaching my children about money has proved to be quiet challenging.  I’ve tried numerous tricks to get them to understand the importance of wise spending and saving, but they still do not seem to grasp the concept.  I’ve searched high and low for something, anything that might make them more financially literate and that’s when I came across Ekomini.image

Ekomini is the world’s first and only web-enabled interactive piggy bank—it’s quite unique and really cool.  Ekomini was designed by professionals in the field of education to help promote financial literacy in children.  It features an interactive money box that connects to a computer via a USB port to provide children with a fun and unique way to keep track of what they save.  Children also have the ability to interact in the online world of Ekominiville where they can learn how about saving, conscious spending , donating and investing their money in a way that is both educational and fun.  The Ekomini Piggy Bank is currently being launched in the US and costs just $39.99.  For more information about the product, including where to buy you can visit the Ekomini website. 



Is this not the coolest thing you’ve seen to teach your kids about money?  I don’t know about you, but I think Ekomini could actually do what I’ve had the hardest time trying to do—teach my children about saving and spending money.
