Whichever coin bank it is, this is an item that every kid should have. Check these few below for some ideas of what to get. Piggy banks have certainly changed over the years to incorporate more designs and creativity into this simple kids’ item.
Money Scholar Classic Sports Bank
This is perfect for an active kid with a love for sports. With 4 types of balls with 4 different uses for every penny saved, kids should be able to grasp the concept of giving, spending, investing and saving pretty quickly.
The 4 balls range in height from 3″ to 5.5″. They sit on a base that measures 8.5″ x 8.5″. The best thing about this unique coin bank is that there is an invest portion. Most children’s coin banks with a similar concept only has 3 compartments instead of 4. Thus, kids have an extra thing to learn about finance when they also have an invest portion to save up for when you give them this Classic Sports Bank.
Stealing Coin Money Box
Kids will find this fun. Each time you put a coin on the designated spot, the panda will come out and steal your coin. It is creative and fun to watch how your money is being “stolen”.
Apart from a panda, you can also get this unique piggy bank with a cat or monkey. There is also another design with a dog but that works on swallowing your coin instead of stealing with its hand.
The drawback is this type of coin banks need batteries to operate. But the good thing is they work like a toy which will encourage kids to save
Kids Railroad Standing Bank
Boys would love this one as it looks like a railroad crossing caution signal but doubles up as a piggy bank. With the transparent tube, kids can see the amount of coins that they have saved and will be encouraged to do so regularly to fill it to the top.
Om top of that, the piggy bank does emit sounds when a button is pressed. You will hear the sound of a passing train and the lights will flash too. For this feature, you will need 2 AA batteries to operate it.
As a parent, the bad thing is the sound can get annoying and it is pretty loud. But as a coin bank, it is fun for the kids and makes a great decor in the bedroom.
