My girls love saving money in piggy banks of all kinds. My youngest loves cats and I felt that this peradix money bank would be perfect for her. This takes two AAA batteries and is easy to turn off and on. It also has a small latch under it to get the money out of the bank when you are ready to empty it out. The cat inside the bank is as soft as ever and is quite adorable. It does have a noise that it makes when it takes the money but I am not really sure what it says or if it's in English or not. This has been a great gift for my youngest daughter as she carries it around everywhere and is always feeding the kitty in the box. This is also a great way for her to start saving money so she can use it for whatever she wants in the future.
