Children can learn to manage money in Pocket Money Bingo, an engaging way to encourage financial awareness. Players develop coin recognition and a sense of the value of money as they total up different amounts across two levels of play. Featuring familiar pocket money items, the first player to cover three objects in a row is the winner.

Children learn about buying and giving change with new shopping game, Buy it Right!. This family board game uses realistic play coins and notes to encourage money recognition and helps to develop financial awareness. Players set prices, buy and sell items, make change and learn place value.

In the Money Bags Coin Value game, players collect money for completing household chores before counting and exchanging money all the way to the finish line. Game play promotes a positive attitude towards earning and saving money.

Exact Change is a Uno-style money game where players need to collect £3 in their bank across fast-paced rounds by getting rid of their hand first. Children play cards by matching coin values, card colours or by making exact change, which allows them to discard multiple cards at once. Real-life images aid coin recognition whilst game play promotes equivalency skills.
