DD is 6 and loves Piglet
DS1 is 8 ad loves Dr Who
DS2 is 4 and loves minis and cats.

Any ideas?

Google is scary when you get thousands of sites.

Are you arty? Can you decorate your own? Argos do paint-your-own piggy banks.

We bought DS1 this one forchritmaslast year, but in all fairness, we did only pay £10 in the sale. Wouldn't dream of paying £30 for it.

What about here althoug no piglet, I think you would need a Disney shop for that.

5inthebed - that looks great but too much money with 3 to buy. Thanks though .

Some great ones there, oopsacoconut, thank you and for the idea for paint your own, cleanandclothed.

If it's any help, I bought one from oopsacoconut's link earlier this year and was pleased with the service and the item (although the box did smell a bit of ciggy smoke when it arrived). I bought the silver plated train.

Bump to remind me to order something.

I'm bored so I am looking on Ebay for you.

Thank you CH.

I love the piglet and dr who ones and have emailed DH to bid for them. I need to look again at the mini one as I am not sure it will meet with DS2's approval. Thank you very much

ChilloHippi Fri 18-Sep-09 14:02:04

You're welcome. I shall see if I can find a better Mini one.

ChilloHippi Fri 18-Sep-09 14:03:45

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 18-Sep-09 14:06:21

The red one is perfect. Thank you

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 18-Sep-09 14:17:23

The cat one is funny but I think I will stick with the mini one, thank you.

ChilloHippi Fri 18-Sep-09 14:24:04

glad to be of assistance!

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 18-Sep-09 15:46:45

Damn, we are the first and only bid on the Piglet one and now we have only just realised that the stopper is missing. Crap.

ChilloHippi Fri 18-Sep-09 19:34:46

Oh no. sad

ChilloHippi Fri 18-Sep-09 19:35:59

any good?
Can you ask what size the hole is?

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 18-Sep-09 20:09:14

It is the stopper that is missing so the money will just fall out.

Thanks for the link, when the money box comes we will check what the size is.

there are some other sizes on Ebay too.
