Cute and Functional
I purchased this in an effort to save money and be more organized-instead of throwing loose change in my wallet, coin purse, or finding it all over the bottom of my handbag (..)
I purchased mine in "pink". I'm normally not a pink person, but this little hot pink piggy makes me happy and always gets comments. It has a good size which fits neatly on my entry shelf and has a thick plastic shell, so if I do happen to drop it all will be well.
I do agree the lock can be a little fiddly if this is for children, but secure once it's closed. If your piggy is full of change you won't be able to see if you got it closed or not, but after some practice it's not a problem.
The lock works using prongs on the sides to hook and then twist to secure. The prongs look to be made of thick plastic as well, so if your child (or you) try to force it over time, I don't think it will bend or break.
All in all I highly recommend this for children and adults; good size, cute colors, and a great way to see your money grow.

Love to feed the piggy!
I bought this piggy in clear a few years ago, and just got married last year. My husband uses it every day for his loose change... and we always talk about having to "feed the piggy" when we have extra change. When it gets full, I take it to the bank (when piggy has to poo). Last time was $66. :) I have two step-children now. They're going to be getting piggies for Christmas. The pink is perfect for the 7-yr-old girl, and the 13-yr-old boy will love the green one.
We only use it for change, but there is space to fold up bills to shove inside. I would think it would be hard to get the bills back out again, but that's a good way to save. :)

The Perfect Piggy
I bought three of these banks for my sons. I wanted to get them banks that were clear so they could see their savings grow. I also wanted something that wasn't ceramic and wouldn't be broken in a week! So the clear plastic piggy bank was the perfect thing.

My 2yr old loves it
I had been looking for a plastic piggy bank for a long time. I researched online and found this one. Not only is it cute, but my 2yr old loves it and has dropped it several times, with no damage.
