App reinvents chores as kids’ first job with direct deposit.
Phoenix, AZ — BusyKid is thrilled to announce that it has been named a National Parenting Product Awards winner for 2018. For over 27 years, the National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) has been ensuring that parents purchase the highest quality products that help them connect and enjoy time with their families.
Consumers looking for high-quality products and services can rest assured when they see the NAPPA Winner’s Seal; it’s evidence of a products excellence from having been evaluated by unbiased experts. NAPPA’s team of independent expert judges, along with parent and child testers, select the best music, toys, apps, games, books, baby gear and other family must-haves to be award winners through year-round product testing.
“This unique app will help kids learn to earn, save, spend and invest their own money,” says NAPPA Director Elena Epstein. “Financial literacy is an important skill for kids to develop early on.“
Chores and allowance are two hotly debated topics among parents. Some feel their kids are worked hard enough between school and extra-curricular activities. Others expect their kids to help out around the house either for a reward or simply as a member of the family who needs to contribute to the happiness and well-being of the group. BusyKid takes a new approach, framing chores as a tool parents can use to set their kids up for future financial success.
From washing the car to making a bed, and from doing the dishes to picking up clothes, kids can now learn responsibility, accountability and smart money decision through the BusyKid apps. BusyKid is one of the best online educational tools for parents who want their kids to learn about work ethic, managing money and making financial decisions.
“It is very gratifying to see BusyKid be recognized as one of the top parenting products of 2018,” said BusyKid Co-Founder and CEO Gregg Murset. “Our goal is to provide a service that is easy for parents to use and engaging for kids. It was also important to give something that leaves a long-lasting impression when it comes to work ethic, responsibility and managing money. It appears we accomplished what we set out to do.”
BusyKid is the first chore/allowance app where children can earn, save, share, spend, and invest real money wisely. It features pre-loaded chores based on children’s ages that parents can customize as needed, and allowance that is paid every Friday (Payday). After getting paid, children can save some money, donate some and use the rest to buy gift cards, get cash, buy shares of real stock or make purchases by using the BusyKid VISA Prepaid Spend Card.
