Money Savvy Pig Bank: review and giveaway

Comment to enter for your own Money Savvy Pig Bank! One winner will be drawn after March 5th from random.org.

*This giveaway is now CLOSED. Random.org selected comment #48 (Jodi D). Congrats!

I recently received an email from the folks over at Money Savvy Generation. After agreeing to review the Money Savvy Pig Bank, a blue plastic piggy bank was shipped to my home. I opened the box and had to laugh. My husband wanted to know why I was laughing. I told him: A few months ago I saw this product online. I loved it and went all the way through the steps to order one. Something stopped me. Right before hitting the ‘pay’ button I stopped short. I didn’t know why – just a feeling I had. And now…here we are, getting one for review.”

Hmm… :-) I love those moments.

That should tell you, then – even before seeing the product in person, I had already wanted one for my kids. So yes – I love it.

The pig contains four slots:

  • Save
  • Spend
  • Donate
  • Invest

I can still remember (way back when) my folks having one of those plastic bread boxes in our kitchen to collect our change for charity. I do not believe those bread boxes are still around today but the idea of charity is most certainly still alive and well. My husband and I both want to raise our children to be givers.

We also want our kids to learn the importance of investing, of saving and of course…to enjoy the rewards of spending wisely.

This little piggy teaches all four concepts :-) Included with each purchase are numerous stickers that indicate what the money is going to be used for. There are also several blank stickers so the child can draw a picture of what he/she is saving for, etc.

Consumers may also wish to learn about the Money Savvy books that can be used along with the Money Savvy Pig Bank: Volume 1 & 2 | Volume 3 & 4.

Okay. You totally know you want one. Go ahead and comment.

**(This would make a great classroom item, too – to teach your students the value of money management!)

  2. Sherri-Lee says:

    I have 3 cups for each kid. Save, charity and spending. Been doing that all along with them. They decide the amounts split out but love the idea of teaching them about money this way. And that piggy is WAY cuter than my plastic IKEA cups!:)

    Pick me:)

    LOL

    The Money Savvy Pig Bank is such a wonderful was to teach young children what they should do with there money. I love the piggy bank, and would be delighted to win one for my little one. This would definitely set her on the right track to being money savvy!!

  6. Whitney says:

    I love these! It is perfect way for kids to understand how they should use their money.

  7. Barbara S says:

    I let my kids go through my purse on a regular basis to clean out all of the change sitting on the bottom and in the pockets. They get to keep the change for themselves so this bank would be a great way for them to begin to understand money and at the same time, save it for a future purchase.

    Love it. Please enter me in the giveaway.

  27. Phrannie says:

    my kid could really use this! he keeps finding change that daddy drops on the ground, and it would be a great place to put it in. plus then daddy could see all the moolah he’s just tossing around…. and then it’s no longer his. muahahahahaaa!!! that’s my altruistic evil plan, anyhow…

  55. jeanine says:

    i am a kid and when ever i see the money savy pig i think of the ways it can help me save money.i am a quick sppender but once i get the money savvy pig i will learn not to spend my money the first minute i get it.it would also mean alot to me because whenever i go to a store i ask about the money savvy pig and they told me they dont have it.s i have been searching everywhere for them. it would mean so much to me if i won because i would finally be better with saving,spending,donating,and investing with my money. so if you pick me i will be a better person with money . thank you and this would mean so much if i won.and lastly thank you for your time

  56. Jeanine: This giveaway ended in March of 2010 :-) Thanks for the comment, though!!

  57. jeanine says:

    thanks shara who won

  58. jeanine says:

    do you know any other giveaway for this product and do you think that if i entered in march i would have won

  59. Jeanine: I can’t recall who won. It was long ago. However, I did email Money Savvy to find out if they can remember!! Perhaps they remember who won it.

    This giveaway was more than a year ago now and I get hundreds or emails a day – I try to keep up with things as best I can :-)

    We had over 50 people enter for this bank and I use Random.org to choose my winners. So they are always randomly chosen. I never pick a winner on my own. So your chance of winning would have been as good as any, eh?

  60. jeanine says:

    thank you , and please leave a comment telling me about any other give aways for this product

  61. I don’t know if anyone else is giving this away, my dear. However, you can write to them asking if more bloggers are giving their product away! http://www.msgen.com/assembled/contact.html (this is the page where you will find their email)

    You could also make your own piggy bank out of tin cans or coffee containers. Decorate the outside and mark each one with “save” and “spend” etc. Cut a slit in the top for the money to drop through. I make piggy banks with my kids, too!

    Jeanine: We went back to find the winner. It was Jodi D!
