Ekomini USB Powered Piggy Bank

Want to teach your kids how to get into the habit of saving and investing money? The Ekomini will certainly help you achieve that. This USB piggy bank can be connected to your PC via USB cable, and will scan the coins that are deposited into it. The deposits are credited to a virtual account that’s stocked with games and life-skill building challenges (that are related to finance). They will be able to fiddle with the social gaming site, ekominiville.com, and parents will also be able to guide their child’s online endeavors via a configuration screen. This USB piggy bank is going for $38, but it seems like a rather interesting device for a growing kid, don’t you think? A video on the Ekomini is up for your viewing pleasure.
