As Mr. Buffett said in a Forbes interview, “It’s never too early to help kids understand about money. Whether it’s understanding the cost of the new toy they want, or the value of saving money. Kids are exposed to money matters from a very young age, so why not help them understand it and develop healthy habits early on?”
Produced for kids 6–11, Secret Millionaires Club engages kids with basic lessons in business and imparts healthy habits from an early age. In the series, Warren Buffett is a mentor to a group of kids, helping them learn about the “business of life” through a series of adventures. Every episode offers valuable life lessons, and as Mr. Buffett reminds the kids at the end of every episode, “the best investment you can make is an investment in yourself!”
Mr. Buffett’s celebrity friends appear as special guests in episodes of Secret Millionaires Club, including Jay Z, Bill Gates, Shaquille O’Neal, Gisele Bündchen, Kelly Rowland, Nick Cannon and others who impart their own positive lessons.
Volume 1 episodes include: Be Cool to your School, Neither a Borrower nor a Lender Be, Dude, When Pigs Fly, The Cost of Giving, Elena’s Shaqtastic Adventure (featuring Shaquille O’Neal), Avast Ye Downloads. Plus five additional animated shorts.
Volume 2 episodes include: Down and Out in Beijing, Listen to the Music, Paranormally We Don’t Do This Kind of Thing, The Final Financial Fronteir, Sweeeet!, Just Say Snow. Plus five additional animated shorts.
