For decades, the lemonade stand served as kids' best way to gain a sense of the entrepreneurial spirit, but Pizza Co., a game from Osmo, revolutionizes how kids can learn about both running a business and financial literacy. In Pizza Co., kids own and operate a pizzeria, using augmented reality pizza and toppings to serve digital characters.

The Pizza Co. game puts kids in a fantasy land full of hungry animals looking to grab a slice of pizza. In their stores, kids need to tend to the animal customers (as displayed on their iPad screen,) taking orders and using the toppings included in the Pizza Co. set to make the perfect pie.

While they play, kids learn about important financial ideas like profit and loss, managing supplies and the benefits of good service.
