While vacationing in sunny Florida I found an interesting article in the April 17th issue of the Sarasota Herald Tribune that I would like to share with you. Walt Disney World in Florida and T. Rowe Price, a money management firm, have collaborated to create The Great Piggy Bank Adventure in Disney’s Epcot theme park and a stand-alone, three-level virtual online board game at www.thegreatpiggybankadventure.com. Disney hopes the fun online game will help to create conversation between parents and their children about the importance of setting goals and financial planning. The Great Piggy Bank Adventure in the theme park is a hands-on interactive exhibit combining physical and virtual elements focusing on concepts about setting goals and savings that families can enjoy. The exhibit at Disney World affords parents and their children an opportunity to share teachable moments about good money habits that they can talk about and practice. Both are designed primarily for children ages 8-14.
