New from the National Center for Families Learning!
Renegade Buggies is a new financial literacy iOS/Android game designed to help families develop basic budgeting and money management skills. Designed for children and parents to play together, the game covers four concepts: unit prices, buying in bulk, coupons, and promotions.
In Renegade Buggies, the mission is simple: ride the back of your buggy (shopping cart) down the street and collect a specific amount of money and items—everything from shampoo to dog food to underwear—but be sure to dodge the cones, rolling tires, and puddles or you’re sure to crash. Once you collect your items, hit the checkout phase of the game and decide which of the three shampoos you gathered will save you the most money. The more money you save, the more power-ups and accessories you can buy for your buggy.
