for Santander & Thought Machine
HELPING CHILDREN SAVE AND SPEND WISELY IN THE DIGITAL WORLD
Born from a passion to help kids understand the value of money in an increasingly cashless society, Money Monsters are modern day piggy banks which link to a real bank account instead of being filled with coins and notes.
We worked closely with Santander and Thought Machine to design and develop these fun and friendly coin-free critters!
