To encourage my kid to save pocket money with fun, I have bought him an electronic password protected money saving box.
This money saving box is designed to store both coins and notes. It is quite large, about 7 x 4 x 4.5 cubic inches.
It operates with 3 AA size batteries, to be inserted into its bottom compartment.
Coins are dropped from its top aperture, just like most ordinary piggy bank. Bank notes are to be inserted from its front aperture. Interestingly, this saving box will roll the bank notes into it, with similar effect of automated parking machine.
It has a revolving vault door with password protection, working similarly to a real safe. The password can be changed too.
On top of it is a small LED light, when switched on in darkness, can provide good enough illumination for putting in the coins and slotting in the bank notes.
Christmas and new year is around the corner. At the price of around RM60, perhaps this is a good choice as present to the kids.
