According to research, the average age that children start to purchase items online is 10. So we need to teach them about finanical matters. Luckily, there are resources available to allow us to do this. Cha-Ching is a financial education resource, designed to equip primary school children with the knowledge, skill and attitudes they need to make informed money decisions.

Cha-Ching is a multi-platform resource built around animated music videos with supporting lesson plans designed to improve the financial capability of Key Stage 2 pupils.

The series of 16, three-minute music videos feature six lively characters, who through their roles in the band and everyday lives experience situations that involve money and discover the fundamental money management concepts of Earn, Save, Spend and Donate.

Cha-Ching was developed by Prudential Corporation Asia, the Asian business of Prudential plc, the UK-based financial services group, in partnership with Cartoon Network Asia in response to a growing interest in, and need for, child-focused financial education.
