We teach children the value of money through edutainment. The Company Play Store is an interactive retail experience designed to teach students about personal finances, customer service and entrepreneurialism through the experience of shopping. The experience of shopping begins with an understanding of how money works and how families use it to protect their financial future and then delivering that opportunity with fun.
Play helps children learn financial literacy and to make good financial choices through actual interactive involvement with “money”. It is a “banking system” tied to a debit card that allows children to make financial decisions as they shop through the store. This, without effecting real life, gives the children the opportunity to learn before they make decisions that could seriously impact their lives.
"To be successful, most kids don't need to learn about collateralized debt instruments, but they do need to know how to open a bank account, how much they need to save each month to reach their goals and, if they borrow this amount of money, how much money they will need to earn to pay it back."-Nan Morrison, president and CEO, Council for Economic Education

PLAY has partnered with xxxx, on a financial literacy curriculum that expands as the financial education needed by the child matures. Our goal is to keep the child interested in financial literacy for their lifetime and to create good financial habits throughout their lives.
Completing the curriculum at their age level is the only way children will get to PLAY and achieve the complete PLAY experience.
Even we were surprised by the number of financial literacy programs that are available. But with all of us trying to help families understand money, the U.S. is still failing on financial literacy. Enter PLAY. We believe that a combination of classroom experience, online activity and the real time use of financial concepts is the best way for children to learn and appreciate financial management.
With our use of PLAY money, PLAY banking and the PLAY store, we will give children an edutainment experience that will allow children to become the financially literate adults of tomorrow.
There is no other place in the world that offers kids this experience.
