78% of parents feel they aren’t successful at teaching their kids about money.

Let parents know that TD has the tools to help them spark money-related conversations with their kids.

In just over 5 hours we gave away 1,000 posters to parents and kids that targeted an item that the kids would specifically like to save for.

78% of parents feel they aren’t successful at teaching their kids about money. During Financial Literacy Month, TD Bank created a tool to help parents teach. The TD Poster Bank is a tactile savings account for kids. Along with their parents, kids could pick the item they wanted to save for and over time insert the coins needed to buy it. When all the slots were filled by the appropriate coins, the item could be bought. Each coin saved was an opportunity for parents to educate their kids about money.

We created a set of 21” x 36” esca board posters, each featuring a shape of an object that a kid would desire…like a musical instrument, video game, toy and electronic accessory.

We created the shape of each item on our posters using custom coin grids, then I-Cut the coin shapes to fit the different coins circulating in Canada.

We determined how much it would take to actually buy each object, then designed each poster to visually depicted the total number of coins a kid would need to insert in the poster to buy their chosen item.

1000 posters were handed out to parents and kids in just over five hours. Parents that initially refused to take a poster, came back to take one after considering the actual benefit for their kids. As a campaign, TD’s Financial Literacy initiative saw a 100% increase in web traffic to
