WHAT WE DO:
Snigglezoo Entertainment’s award-winning “Money Mammals: Saving Money Is Fun” DVD, the first video created specifically to teach kids about the value of money, has been highlighted in The Wall Street Journal as a great tool to teach financial literacy fundamentals. The DVD entertains and engages kids and parents via upbeat songs and a story line that illustrates the importance of saving money. The characters and content have grown into The Money Mammals® Saving Money Is Fun Kids Club, a premium youth marketing program available for license nationwide.
WHAT WE OFFER:
Financial Literacy Products: The Money Mammals online store contains the DVD and a growing line of financial literacy products, such as the “Allowance Magic” workbook, the three-bank Share, Save and Spend Smart kit and a soon-to-be-published children’s book. All of the products are available for bulk purchase with institutional pricing.
Saving Money Is Fun Kids Club: The Money Mammals Saving Money Is Fun Kids Club is a fresh, customizable program that focuses on the relevant financial literacy issues of today and the future. Our mission is to get kids and parents to associate great money habits—and loyalty—with our partners.
WHAT WE NEED:
The sole purpose of Snigglezoo Entertainment is to teach young kids in preschool and elementary grades about financial literacy using entertaining, enriching and educational media. We are always seeking new partners to help us promote sharing, saving and spending smart.
Teaching Guide and Book: The Money Mammals recently launched a Teaching Guide for use in schools, afterschool programs and other youth efforts. The Teaching Guide, which comes with activities, works in tandem with the DVD. John Lanza, Creator and Chief Money Mammal, is also working on a Money Mammals children’s book—due out this April—to reach kids even more with the financial literacy message.
Social Media and Presentations: John Lanza has also been very active within the social media space, using Twitter (@JohnLanza), Facebook (visit http://www.facebook.themoneymammals.com) and his “Kids and Money” blog (visit http://teachkidsmoney.blogspot.com/). John uses these vehicles to engage with parents across the country regarding the importance of youth financial literacy and the Money Mammals message of sharing, saving and spending smart. John is available for speaking engagements and hands-on presentations on the subject at youth and parenting events.
