Coin Banks

March 24th, 2009

My mother-in-law, Marilyn, was looking for a piggy bank for my nephew. I was curious to see what was out there and was pleasantly surprised to find some pretty adorable offerings. I’m pretty sure my favorite is the little elephant from Elegant Baby. The proportions are just perfect and I love the big ears and little nose!

    I {love} piggy banks and these are adorable! I am a kid when it comes down to coins..you’d be surprised how much you can end up having in your hands if you start saving them! A while ago I posted about collecting all the coins in my house (http://valeasc.blogspot.com/2009/02/all-coins-in-house.html)..I had so much fun! Can’t wait to do it again 🙂

    Gah, I love the big green egg! These aren’t just for kids, right? These days, I’d probably be wise to save my pennies, and what a fun way to do it!

    Oh these are ADORABLE! I have a baby shower this weekend and I SO wish I’d found these sooner, the turtle is just perfect! The elephant is great too! I kind of want one for me too, is that wrong?

    what a fantastic gift for a child (or an adult). maybe if i bought one, i’d be more tempted to save (maybe).
