Ekomini . . . An Interactive Web-Based Piggy Bank

Since I began my informal series on products developed specifically to teach children about saving and spending money, I have never seen a product like the Ekomini Piggy Bank.

The Ekomini interactive money box is based on the concept of teaching your child to divide his or her money between four categories . . . saving, spending, sharing (or donating), and investing. In addition to accepting your child's physical coins, the Ekomini plugs into your PC's USB port and tracks your child's money.

To accompany this product, an online educational game was developed called Ekominiville. This game continues the theme of saving, spending, sharing, and investing.

The Ekomini is currently available in the U.S. for $39.99 on . Visit this site to watch an informative video about this innovative product.
