Fathead Launches Youth-Friendly Payment System


DETROIT — Fathead, the industry leader of officially licensed sports and entertainment graphics and more, today announced the launch of Virtual Piggy, a youth-friendly payment system. Virtual Piggy is now available to customers as a secure online payment option on Fathead.com.

Through a free Virtual Piggy account, Fathead is able to create a safe, convenient shopping experience for children by giving parents the ability to control and monitor their child’s spending account. Under this parentally managed account, kids can freely browse and purchase their favorite Fathead products, while learning financial responsibility at the same time.

“Our products are made for fans of all ages and many times it’s the younger fans who get the most excited when they see their favorite player, team or character,” said Michael Layne, director of Internet marketing for Fathead. “With Virtual Piggy, we’re empowering those under 18 to make purchases on their own in a safe, parent approved manner.”

“Virtual Piggy members have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Fathead,” said Jo Webber, Virtual Piggy founder and CEO, “From Derek Jeter to Kobe Bryant, Fathead has the ‘must have’ products for teens and tweens from coast to coast.”

Virtual Piggy is the safest way for youth to save, spend, and give online. When making purchases through Virtual Piggy, no personal information is collected, making it completely COPPA compliant and TRUSTe certified.
