For seven to nine year old boys and girls.
Children, usually driven by peer-pressure, want the latest toys, electronics, and clothes, but have little understanding of the value of money or where it comes from. This is essential knowledge for later years.
Billy wants a new skateboard and games controller, but doesn't understand why he can't have them bought for him. He doesn't pay anything towards other household costs, so why does he have to contribute to a toy? His mum and dad are presented with some large and unexpected household bills, but once Billy understands the challenges his parent's face, it makes him respect them more, and understand how much they work to invest in their family.
Does Billy get a new skateboard? Who pays for it? Will the family afford to go on holiday this year?
