I wanted to love this bank. It was exactly what our son needed to help him learn how to deal with money. The price was very reasonable. I would gladly have paid more for better quality. The box is acceptable strength but the clasp, lock, and keys are ridiculous. I could not fathom it was possible to make metal keys this paper thin. I was sure my son would break the key in half as soon as he inserted it into the lock. As it turns out, it lasted a couple weeks before the clasp and keys broke. He still uses the box, but is upset the lock broke.
The product is exactly what we were looking for -- a relatively inexpensive way to save/store money in three different ways. The size was bigger than I expected and my kids love it. This is very much a Mormon bank -- ex: mission fund and the people are wearing badges that say "elder". We are not Mormon so we just chose to use a label maker to change the slots to "spend", "save", and "give".
So I have a 3 year old son and he has an Uncle who always give him a dollar every time we visit him, so before I just always put it on my wallet and just let him know that he has some money on me, so my husband and I realized why won't we just get him a tin can, in that case he will learn how to earn money, so we bought him this he was very excited he liked it very much, however I think the only thing he didn't much like about this one is the design or drawings of the tin can maybe because he doesn't know the drawings or he prefers some cartoon characters so what he did he gather all his stickers and stick it all over the tin can. Every 15th and 30th we give him dollar to put in his tin bank he always look forward to that day and so excited every time he puts the money in his tiny bank. This is right size to start for little kid's bank, I will highly recommend this, and because it is a can even if he accidentally drops it, it's safe unlike the ceramic ones. Child friendly is big plus,...
