Any parent knows that teaching a kid to save their money rather than spending it as soon as they get it is just about impossible. You can give them a bank but they still tend to want to spend their money now. A company called Ekomini has developed a new interactive bank for kids that helps them track what they save.

Not only can kids track the savings, but the bank connects to an online game world where the kids can take the money they save and build a city, set goals, and spend the money in virtual world. The bank has a patented coin reader that keeps track of the money as it is inserted into the bank.

The device also has decals letting kids decorate their bank and it ships with the needed USB cable for connecting it to a PC. A PC and an internet connection are required to play the game. The bank is available at Walmart and sells for CAD 39.99.
