    My DD is 5 and gets $5 a week pocket money. Mostly she buys colouring in books, stickers and school-type workbooks from cheapy shops (Reject Shop/ Bargains Plus, etc).

    She recently saved some money and bought a new funky helmet for her bicycle

    Our 12year old son spends his pocket money mostly on iTunes buying songs, games and items within games. We also make him buy his own credit for his phone.

    Dd is 9 and gets $5 a week she saves until her money box is full. She recently went shopping and got journey girl doll and bunch of accessories with it. Other things would be art, books, shopkins, clothes, shoes, smelly girly things.

    Uh ha. And defined age range for the question and calling shops 'retailers' is a dead giveaway.

    My ds is 14 and has a part time job. He was saving for his first car but he recently took all his money out and bought a custom made pair of headsets and a camera lens.He will often buy takeaway foodand electronic stuff.
