It's the Digi-Piggy!

When I was at Toy Fair this year, I walked by the booth that had Digi-Piggy in it, turned around and walked right back! It certainly caught my attention! I mean, look at this, isn't it awesome:


"The website Mashable listed Digi-Piggy as one of the top 10 coolest new toys at Toy Fair, which is HUGE. Mashable is the top source for news in social and digital media, technology and web culture."

Lili loves the new piggy bank! She is always wanting to put her money in the bank instead of taking it with us to the grocery store to get something out of those horribly addicting (for kids) machines in the entry ways. Now she runs over to her bank and pops the coin in. "Mommy, how much is this worth?" This piggy bank has made her very curious about money and how all different shapes and sizes of money equal different amounts of money. And I just love it because she is learning AND saving!! BONUS!!

Now Adalynn on the other hand, loves it too. She snorts at it every time we put money in. She doesn't quite grasp the concept yet. But...she is only 1.5 ;)

There are quite a few GREAT things about the Digi-Piggy, but instead of me trying to rewrite what their copy already does such a good job saying, check it out below. I'll put in bold what I love about it too:

The Digi-Piggy™ is a piggy bank like no other; this piggy is able to count your savings for you. The Digi-Piggy™ comes with an innovative electronic LCD digital readout on its snout that allows you to track your savings while being both easy and fun at the same time. The Digi-Piggy’s™ lower portion is clear to allow for an easy view of your growing savings. For every coin dropped into the bank the LCD displays its value by blinking three times followed by the total amount saved. When you are ready to empty the bank simply push the reset button, and the Digi-Piggy™ is ready to begin saving again. The Digi-Piggy™ has been designed with safety in mind: The AA-batteries are housed in the top portion of the bank with its own battery housing, and a small safety screw keeps the batteries out of children’s reach allowing for adult peace-of-mind.

The Digi-Piggy™ is a great way for people of all ages to save money. You can forget about having to break the bank ever again, The Digi-Piggy™ has a twist–off head that allows for easy withdrawals of your savings. In addition the LCD snout will take care of counting your coins for you, making saving a fun and exciting experience.

Last thing I want to note quickly:
Inside the Digi-Piggy® there is an IC memory chip which allows an “auto save memory”. If the batteries go dead and need to be changed, the amount is saved and restored once batteries are replaced. The total savings amount will be saved and stored!

You can find Digi-Piggy on Facebook too. Head on over and like it to hear about news and special promotions going on! Also, Toyburg (company website) can be found on Facebook too! They are the company that has exclusive rights to distribute Digi-Piggy on Amazon and eBay!

White Digi-Piggy: $14.95

  66. Definitely not Pink (unless it's a gift!) White and for Owen...he dropped his and smashed it a year ago. We haven't really needed one until now b/c we are working on behavior issues and also trying to teach him what it's like to 'work' for toys instead of just getting them. This would be perfect!
