What Are Some Different Types of Money Jar Banks?

Different types of money banks include glass or plastic, plain, pig-shaped or football-shaped jars with built-in electronic counters, and candy-dispensing machines. Other types include money boxes with mouths that "eat" the coins, and boxes containing a kitten, puppy or panda that reaches out a paw to grab the coin.

The electronic counters located in the lids of some money jar banks register coins fed into the slot and display the total sum saved on a digital LCD display. The candy-dispensing machines give out a piece of candy in response to each coin. The coin-eating money boxes feature faces with mouths that start moving as the coin approaches. The money-grabbing animal boxes say "hello" and "thank you" as the toy animal takes the coins.
