Who doesn’t remember their first piggy bank? There’s something fun about adding spare change to a piggy bank and then eventually turning it into cold hard cash at the bank after you’ve filled it up. Help little ones learn the value of saving their money early on with these fun piggy banks.

This kids’ coin jar is specifically designed for U.S. coins and is easy to use with a simple twist-off lid. The LCD display clearly indicates how much money is in the jar.

With this kids’ piggy bank, your child still gets the classic slot in the back to insert coins or cash. It measures 7.5 inches across and comes with an adorable blue gingham scarf.

This classic ceramic kids’ piggy bank includes a rubber stopper so you won’t have to resort to a hammer to retrieve that change. It’s perfect for a baby registry gift.

We like that this kids’ piggy bank is available in seven colors to fit the decor for most kids’ rooms. Note, though, that this pick does require three AA batteries to operate and they’re not included.

This kids’ coin jar is designed for U.S. coins only and automatically keeps a tally of the current savings in it. Best of all, it’s easy to get the money out when you want it.
