Pɘggy

Peggy is a new type of interactive toy that will teach your children about the value and management of money. This innovative piggy bank allows kids not only to save money but also counts and redistributes the amount of money in the Peggy-account. Moreover, it permits kids to set saving goals and teaches them in a playful way the value of earning, saving and spending money. Besides, Peggy offers parents the possibility to have an insight into the child’s development.
