Summer vacation is fast approaching or has already begun for some of you. Next time your child says, “I’m bored!” you can direct him towards The Great Piggy Bank Adventure online game. This “fun-filled financial journey” is similar to The Great Piggy Bank Adventure found in Innoventions West.
First you select single or multi-player (up to 4 people can play at once). Next you select your character, earn truffles (money) and work to achieve your goal. There are various spending temptations, and if you are unsure how to proceed, you can always check the help book. Don’t be fooled into thinking that saving all your money will get you to your goal faster. Buying some items can help you during the game.
In true Disney fashion, you’ll be reward for spending wisely. Next time you handout your child’s allowance and it’s spent the next day, give The Great Piggy Bank Adventure a try. I admit it, I liked playing this game, too!
