The beribboned Japanese bobtail cat is back. She has graced pillowcases, paste tubes, lunch boxes, umbrellas and pencil cases. The cat with nine million trinkets and counting to her name takes the kiddie financial world by storm with today’s MetroDeal: Save for the Rainy Days with a Hello Kitty ATM Machine Money Box for P759 instead of P1750.
Teaching kids to save is seldom easy. Get the idea in bit by bit without being overbearing for kids are curiously intelligent beings. They first have to be convinced that, first of all, it’s not something that will cramp their enjoyment of their little lives, and second of all, a balled-up fist is no place for spare change nor is the Korean ice cream store downstairs. Cue in Hello Kitty. “From Sanrio comes the Hello Kitty ATM Machine Money Box, the kitty bank to end all piggy banks!”
Without a doubt, it’s stylish and classic but more than that, it’s useful and will hopefully get kids into the serious business of saving. It allows them to set a target amount with a target date and when that’s met, the feeling of accomplishment will be priceless and encouraging.Unlike piggy banks, the Hello Kitty ATM Machine Money Box duplicates the ATM banking experience by letting your little depositors save money secured with a card password. You can even bring them along when you use your bank’s ATM just to give them a feel of the grown-up version... you know, something to look forward to.
