We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

The Dragon Bank assists parents in teaching their children 3 simple but important financial habits that a child as young as 3 or 4 could grasp. By following the “Way of the Dragon”, your child will start on the path toward financial health early! Your child will learn how to spend carefully, understand the basics of saving and also experience the joy of giving!

There are three key ways that the Dragon Bank allocates your child’s earnings:

  • Spend - You and your child determine what part of their earnings go to spending on all the cool stuff they want.
  • Save - Together, determine how much of their earnings go to long-term savings that can eventually be used as investments that build wealth.
  • Give - Provide the experience of giving to your children by allowing them to send some of their income to a charity or cause of their choice.

Includes Dragon Bank, V.I.P. Dragon Club Card, and Dragon Bank Manual.

Dragon Bank measures approximately 8" long x 6" wide x 7" tall.
