Entrepreneurial kids earn 29% more allowance by doing extra lockdown chores and selling toys online, reveals RoosterMoney

LONDON, May 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — RoosterMoney, the allowance and chore tracking app, reveals kids are now earning $9.35 a week, versus $7.26 pre-lockdown (Q1 ’21 vs Q1′ 20). The increase has come from kids embracing their entrepreneurial spirit, doing extra jobs at home, and selling things online, like old toys and clothes.

Kids are also saving an impressive 48%, inline with rising adult savings rates*. The money kids are spending is increasingly going online with games like Roblox & Fortnite on the rise.

Will Carmichael, RoosterMoney CEO, says:
“The Kids Allowance Report has been running for over four years now reflecting children’s relationship with money. It’s great to see that, despite the challenges for families stuck at home, it has encouraged opportunities for kids to develop money skills that will stick with them for life.”
