You have found that Money Cartoon, the one that teaches your child all about the 6 jars system of money management in a way that will actually get your child excited at the idea of saving their money. Your child will want to become a money master…and buy all the toys they want to their hearts content…
Without using YOU like their very own personal ATM/bank machine! Yeah!
In the video below, Xanthe and Quinn have a hard time saving up for their ultimate goal, they desperately want to buy the newest “Slip ‘n Slide, Side-by-Side, Two-Person Water Slide”.
The problem is they don’t have the money and their parents flat out refuse to buy it for them!
But they’re used to that. They were raised with the idea that if they wanted something then they had to come up with a way to get it. Plain and simple.
Xanthe and Quinn never got an allowance, they always found ways to earn their own money but they had a really bad habit of spending it all at once and never saving up to buy fun bigger goals.
They just can’t manage their money well until they meet the Clever Dough Guy who tells them the story about “The 6 Magical Piggy Banks”.
They wanted the slide but just didn’t know what to do to make that happen.
They knew how to be resourceful and come up with fun ways to earn their own money but just didn’t know how to resist temptation and save their money instead of spending it right way on goodies and toys.
Some of the ways they liked to earn money were:
- Pet sitting
- Walking dogs
- Collecting the mail
- Painting shabby fences
- Raking leaves in the fall
- …and many other helpful tasks for their family and neighbours
One day Quinn and Xanthe were talking about their problem of not knowing how to manage their money and their dream of owning the brand new “Slip-n-Slide, Side-by-Side, 2-Person Water Slide”. They were stumped as to what to do and really wanted someone to help them figure it out.
Just then one of the dollars that they had just earned from their last job, fell out of Xanthe’s hand and dropped on the ground. As Quinn was bending down to pick it up for his sister, the dollar bill jumped up into the air and became alive. It actually turned into a cute little guy with a big dollar sign on his chest and a red baseball cap on his head.
Xanthe and Quinn stood staring at him in amazement. They couldn’t stop blinking!
Then he started to speak and introduced himself to these two amazing children, “Hi, I’m the Clever Dough Guy” he said.
Neither Xanthe nor Quinn could speak, they just kept staring and blinking their eyes.
The Clever Dough Guy continued to introduce himself and explained how he had come to help them learn how to manage their money.
He told them how they could use “The 6 Magical Piggy Banks” money management system to have their money work hard for them, instead of always having to work hard for their money.
He told them about his 6 friends, who each wanted to save their money their own way, and how they always fought about which way was the right way to save.
“Grow” wanted to save his money to invest in things that would make his money grow.
“Give” wanted to save her money to give to others to help them in times of need.
“Learn” wanted to save his money so he would always have money to learn, like going to college or buy a book to learn new things, like astronomy.
“Rain” was scared that bad things may happen and wanted to save her money for that rainy day when her world might turn up-side-down.
“Goal” wanted to save her money to buy something really cool, like a new bike, or a fun family trip to Disney land!
“Fun” just wanted to spend all of his money on fun stuff right now, like going to the movies or buying candy.
They always fought until one day they decided to make a deal and save a little bit of their money in each of their special piggy banks.
Xanthe and Quinn finally found their voices and asked the Clever Dough Guy a ton of questions about each of the piggy banks and then really wanted to know, “….and how is it magical?” they asked.
Just as the Clever Dough Guy was about to answer, he saw some people walking their way and disappeared back into the dollar bill on the ground.
Xanthe and Quinn were sad to see their new friend disappear and they really had wanted to know how to make their money work like magic.
Saddened but enlightened they went home to create their own “6 Magical Piggy Banks” to see if they could figure out how to make them work like magic.
They thought of even more fun jobs to do that helped others and earned them money to put into their new 6 Magical Piggy Banks and watched their banks grow, and grow…and GROW!
That’s when they realized what the Clever Dough Guy had meant about the 6 Piggy Banks being Magical. Because Xanthe and Quinn were dividing their earnings 6 ways, and letting each one grow, they were allowing their money to start working for them…that was the magic!
They now had money in each of their 6 money jars: Grow, Give, Learn, Rain, Goal and Fun.
With their Grow money they could use that money to buy supplies for their businesses, like lemonade for their lemonade stand, new rakes for their raking business, and better umbrellas for their mail collection and dog walking jobs.
With their Give money they were able to help those in need, like their local animal and homeless shelters.
With their Learn money there were able to learn about new things they were interested in, like the new astronomy book that Xanthe had always wanted.
Their Rain money was saving up very nicely so they would be okay if one day their world turned temporarily up-side-down, like if their bikes got flat tires.
With the Goal money they were able to finally save up for their “Slip-n-Slide, Side-by-Side, 2-Person Water Slide”!
And with their Fun money they could enjoy a nice cold ice cream after their fun in the sun on their new water slide!
Xanthe and Quinn were so happy with how their money was working for them and the magic that they were seeing that they wanted to share the magic with their friends. They invited them over to enjoy their new water slide while they told them all about their new 6 Magical Piggy Banks money management system.
Their friends saw the rewards that Xanthe and Quinn were now enjoying from their saved money and wanted to enjoy them too. So they each created their own 6 money jars and started to divide their money into them too and told their friends as well!
