Is It Any Good?

PIGGYBOT is functional, and it's certainly handy for parents who don't always have the exact cash on hand to pay weekly allowances. It's easy to set up and use and includes features to add other cash for non-allowance reasons and to deduct money as necessary. The conversations it can open up for families about money management, including sharing and saving, is priceless. It's only lacking a log-in function to allow kids to access their allowances from a different device. Privacy is the concern there, making this an issue of convenience versus privacy -- and since no real financial information is involved, this is a case where convenience should win.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
