What makes children tick?
These ten facts show you how children in Germany live, what they like, are allowed and want to do, and what they spend their money on.
7.31 million girls and boys aged between 6 and 13 live in Germany. The Children and Media Study 2019 looked at their consumer and leisure time behaviour. Here are some of its interesting findings.

46 % of the children spend all of their money, while 4 % spend nothing and save it all.
87 % are allowed to spend their pocket money on whatever they like, and 63 % are allowed to wear what they want.
95 % are in possession of a bicycle, while 56 % have a mobile phone.
93 % often chat with friends when they see each other, and 38 % write text messages.
