Moneyville is a free, educational game for children between the ages of 5-9, but children both younger and older will also enjoy exploring Moneyville.
Through games, play and activity your child will learn what money is and what its value means. He or she will also be introduced to the difference between income and expenses – to earn money and to spend money.
There is a lot for your child to discover in Moneyville:
- Your child will have his or her first chance to earn money at the city gates, which need to be painted.
- They can also earn money at the apple stall or at the post office.
- They can help the farmer feed his animals and learn about basic mathematics.
- And they can use the money they earn on all kinds of fun things in Penny’s shop or travel back in time in the time machine.
Moneyville gives you as a parent or teacher an easy, entertaining and alternative way to talk to your child or student about money.
Moneyville has been developed in collaboration with leading experts from four different fields relevant to e-learning, including media experts, child psychologists, representatives from teaching organisations and online media experts.
Moneyville is developed by Danske Bank and is a part of Danske Bank’s Financial Literacy Program. The basis of the program is a belief that a higher level of financial literacy and education not only enriches the life of the individual but also contributes to healthy economic growth in the society. The Financial Literacy Program targets children, young people, parents and teachers with the aim of preparing the ground for a healthy financial start to adult life.
Since the launch of Moneyville in 2008, Danske Bank has expanded the Financial Literacy Program with several initiatives for the 5-27-year-olds including Control Your Money, an interactive website aimed at 10-15 year olds, Dream On, a social game for the 15-17 year-olds, Mind Your Money, an advisory website for young people and "0-18", a website for parents about children and money.
The Moneyville app is free and requires no involvement with or association to Danske Bank. In addition, the Moneyville universe is entirely free of marketing, logos, colour schemes and the like that could be associated with the Danske Bank Group.

Appy Kids believe that storytime should be fun yet educational - and that is exactly what we give you with our free, interactive storybook app for children, Alfie and Haathi Discover the Ocean
Alfie and Haathi are building sandcastles on the beach when the magic bioscope whisks them off to their next adventure. Like Appy Oceans our Hindi English language app, the magic bioscope takes them back to the depths of the ocean, this time in search of a birthday party. On their way to the party, Alfie and Haathi meet the Seahorse, Shark, Clownfish and many more underwater friends who help them count from 1 to 10.
In this educational app, your kids will love interacting with the colorful ocean creatures, fun music and sounds and, of course, the dynamic duo of Alfie and Haathi. The Alfie and Haathi Discover the Ocean app has 16 wondrous scenes full of rich color and animation that is second to none.
Every single scene is interactive, and by ‘interactive’ we mean there are many different ways to keep your children engaged with the app. To make sure you catch all the interactions, just click on the Question Mark that appears in the top right hand corner. You can read Alfie and Haathi Discover the Oceans to your children or, if you’re looking to take a break from reading, click on the ‘Read to Me’ icon and let your little ones listen to the story being read back to them!
If you haven’t noticed it already, there is a bubble with a question mark that appears in every ocean scene accompanying each ocean creature. When you click on the floating question mark, you’re introduced to interesting facts about the different ocean creatures in the app. For example, did you know that the Octopus squirts black ink when it’s scared or to frighten away predators?
New In App Game - Sandy Shapes
Make sure you check out ‘Sandy Shapes’, a fun shape-matching game featuring our adorable Appy Ocean characters. This game encourages children to recognize and match different shapes - an important ability for children to learn as it helps develop essential observation and comparison skills needed for other subjects such as reading, writing and math.
