Money Heroes extends partnership with Orchard Toys for Ed and Bunny Go Shopping game 

Following the successful initiative of Ed and Bunny Go Shopping, Money Heroes is extending its partnership with leading educational games manufacturer Orchard Toys
The two brands have committed to producing an additional run of the game that helps teach children to learn about money. Their jointly created board game, which is available free of charge to educational settings, brings learning to life, as children join Ed and Bunny on an adventure all about money.
Money Heroes is a free programme from Young Enterprise – a national charity that provides financial and enterprise education – and is supported by HSBC UK. The programme aims to transform financial education for primary school children, as part of the national curriculum, in schools and at home.
Ed and Bunny Go Shopping is a board game for Key Stage 1 and 2 children, aged 4–7 yrs.  It helps children on their financial education journey, as Ed and Bunny pay Mrs Mole for items on their shopping list.  As children learn to recognise, understand and choose the correct value of coins, it provides support and learning on how to handle money in everyday life situations.
The fun and engaging lotto game helps teachers develop children’s financial capability, and supports parents at home to help their child understand money management, by introducing money matters from an early age.
Russell Winnard, Chief Operating Officer at Young Enterprise, says: “We are delighted to continue our relationship with Orchard Toys. Creating a money game based on our Ed and Bunny books required a partner with a proven track record in producing educational games for the primary school market. The Ed and Bunny series has been a hit with teachers and parents and we’re really excited to continue working with Orchard Toys to help young people become financially capable”.
Simon Prest, Sales Director at Orchard Toys, says: “Following a fantastic response to the initial production run in 2021, we’re delighted to be continuing and extending our partnership with Money Heroes, who offer such valuable support and resources in helping to deliver financial education to children.”

Ed and Bunny Go Shopping is available free of charge from www.moneyheroes.org.uk
