My daughter received Fisher-Price piggy bank as a christmas present almost two months after her first birthday. It's everything that you expect from a toy of this brand. It's bright fun and educational. Some people might think 'oh it's pink, I can't get it for a little boy' but I think it's suitable for both boys and girls.

Oink Oink

The pig is pink in colour, with a red nose and tail. By pressing the nose it activates 1 of 4 different noises. A laugh, a sneeze, an oink or an upbeat song. The tail can be spun around. There are two different functions to choose from, learning and music. Learning time counts with the child every time a coin is inserted into the slot on the top of the pig (upto 10), when the door is opened or closed it will tell you (open, close). Music time will play a tiny melody everytime a coin is inserted. There are 10 coins in total, in 5 different bright colours, each with a different animal picture upon it. It takes 3x AAA batteries

Our thoughts

My daughter loves just pressing the nose repeatedly until it starts the song. She plays with it so much I've remembered all the words! It's a good job theres a volume control (underneath) otherwise I think most parents would want to chuck it out the window!

Kacie was only 1 when she received it so I was a bit worried about her being able to actually grasp the idea of putting the coins into the slot but the chunky coins meant they were easy for her to handle and with a bit of persuasion it didn't take long until she understood the concept.

There are a couple of downsides of this piggy bank. One is that it is one of the most heavist toddler toys I have come across. My daughter could just about pick it up thats without trying to walk with it until she was around 16 months then grew some muscles and it was slightly easier for her. The other downside is the door the the piggy bank, to get the coins back out once they have been inserted through the slot there is a door on the side of the pig, Kacie couldn't open this until she was around 18 months, so it was mummys job for quite some time!

It's available for around £15, I personally think it's a little expensive. But my daughter still occasionally plays with her piggy bank now and she is 2, so we have definitely had our moneys worth.
