Tuttle Twins: Teaching Your Kids About The Gold Standard

by Angel Studios | November 9, 2023

Tuttle Twins fans, prepare for an exciting new minisode featuring everyone’s favorite four-legged vigilante, Dark Dumpster Derek! Ethan and Emily are filming an exciting new Dark Dumpster Derek adventure, in which the masked hero goes head-to-head with the gold-hungry Worm Burglar. Confused about the value of using gold as currency, especially for kids, Ethan and Emily pay a visit to George Washington. The first president teaches the twins about the history of gold as money in the United States, and they learn that owning and paying with gold is far more doable than they think—even for kids!

At a time when inflation wreaks havoc on our economy at an alarming rate, it’s key to help children understand how they can shield their wealth from deteriorating value. Gold-backed currency helps to maintain the value of your dollar, and the Goldback company, the sponsor of this minisode, makes it possible to use gold as money in everyday transactions. 

Goldback produces currency made of real gold, designed to be used in everyday transactions of every size. The first to accomplish this inflation-defying feat, Goldback is on a mission to protect your spending power and help you to harness the enduring value of gold for your everyday benefit.

You can use this Tuttle Twins minisode and its accompanying livestream to teach your kids about gold, Goldbacks, and how money works. Here are some ideas for how you can have these key discussions: 

  1. Simplify your conversation. Help kids understand the value of currency, where that value comes from, and how it can decrease if governments aren’t careful.

  2. Draw connections. Compare gold to other precious items, including those your family may own, to help your kids understand the worth of the precious metal.

  3. Teach about cause-and-effect. Expound on the process of inflation, and explain how a surplus of cash occurs in a nation’s economy. 

  4. Utilize other online resources and games. Expand your conversation to include other topics relating to financial literacy.

The premiere of “Dark Dumpster Derek Returns” will be followed by a special livestream that includes an interview with the CEO of Goldback, a chance to win real gold, and a sneak peek at Episode 11 of Tuttle Twins Season 2. Be sure to tune in on November 14 for this one-of-a-kind content!

This clever new minisode is a fantastic opportunity to teach your children about the gold standard, the value of money, and how everyone (even kids) can use gold as currency. When kids learn essential economic principles from an early age, they can move forward into life empowered with more key knowledge than many adults, and Tuttle Twins makes it particularly exciting!
