I have said this before:  Ellie LOVES to shop.  Whether it’s at the grocery store, the mall, catalog shopping, or online, the girl has an opinion about everything.  Most recently, she has gone Christmas shopping with me and has become quite the savvy shopper…  ”Mom, check and see if this one’s on sale!”

Last week, she was blessed to receive a gift card in the mail & oh, baby… it was burning a hole right through her Cabbage Patch Kid pocket book.  So, in the midst of all the Christmas shopping madness, I took her to Toys ‘R Us to spend her gift.  Not all products made for kids are something that I’d like to have in my house & many {too many} are not made well.  It’s a terrible feeling to see a toy fall apart in a couple of days when you know how hard your child worked to save their money to earn it.  As we looked at toys, we noted the quality and mommy’s approval rating.  It was a fun shopping trip BUT exhausting.

Insert Virtual Piggy™ — the first online shopping experience for families designed to empower children to make smart purchases, while allowing the parents to maintain control.  Parents can sign up for an account, manage the controls, approve purchases, & let their kids check out with their secure Virtual Piggy™account.  Parents maintain control by setting monthly allowance amounts, savings targets and charity goals.  Plus, you’re able to set transaction limits, restrict the merchants where your children can shop, & have the option to require approval on EVERY purchase your child makes.

If you’ve ever found yourself saying over & over to your kids to “put it on your wishlist”, one awesome feature of Virtual Piggy™ is the ability for your kids to create a wishlist within their dashboard.  In that same dashboard, they can track their finances, too — that’s certainly motivation to keep saving.  {I don’t know about you, but I’m willing to pay a little bit to get some *extra* help around the house.}

Ready to check out Virtual Piggy™ for yourself?  When you do, be sure to check out these MVP savings from special merchants just for checking out with Virtual Piggy™!  With the Member Value Program, your child can save money off their purchases with the merchant codes listed on the page.    The codes listed are good until January 15, 2013.
