Tykoon teaches kids the power of earning and the importance of allocating dollars to causes other than spending such as saving and giving. There is no other service out there at this point that teaches kids to earn money through a real life experience. I will be using Tykoon to teach my kids the value of a dollar.
Our family loves Tykoon - it has helped our kids think about money in a new way (not just as something that grows on trees). Our kids want to complete tasks and save up money for their savings goals. They are even looking for ways to help around the house and are asking for more tasks so they can make their goals sooner. Our kids really love to "spot" items they see at stores and save up to buy them instead of whining about how much they want a new toy - it's totally changed the way they look at shopping!
