I asked my daughter Allison if she would share her perspective on using the Money Savvy Pig piggy bank in her childhood and the impact that has made on her adult life. Here is what Allison had to say:
My mom is the mother of the Money Savvy Pig piggy bank. And, as you might expect, we, her daughters, were her guinea pigs when she started teaching kids about money. My first-grade class was her laboratory! I am now 26 years old, several years out of college and well into my career. Teaching first graders about money was a very novel concept when she started 18 years ago. But one that empowered me and my classmates to understand money.
