Teaching kids the habit of saving money is a good thing – we all agree on that. Porkfolio is the world’s smartest piggy bank. It wirelessly syncs with an app on your mobile device so you can track your balance, set saving goals. His nose lights up in celebration every time a coin is added. It even has built-in accelerometer to protect your savings from brothers and sisters. It is cute, clever and $69.99 (and I guess the first time you fill it up, it has paid for itself) Invented by Jason Hunter (influenced by his daughter, Taylor) and available at Quirky.
