Once you've completed MoneyIsland by saving Stone Broke, you are eligible to redeem a secret prize from our treasure box!

Tracking the progress of your budding financial apprentice is fun and easy! Each child is issued an official MoneyIsland password, where they collect new stickers for every benchmark they reach. Best of all, it provides a great opportunity for grown-ups to interact with kids, tracking their progress and watching each milestone materialize into real-life achievements.
