Yesterday I showed a piggy bank menagerie - but not all notable "piggy banks" or money boxes are shaped like animals.
Stylish Life sells this computer key money bank. My keyboard doesn't have a save key or a pound sign key - but I like these, anyway. The save key version is also sold by Uncommon Goods.
Or how about a bank shaped like a New York water tank? Update on March 4, 2010: This product is no longer available.
The Domus Build-It coin bank, shaped like a house, is "made of plastic, packed flat, and snaps together in seconds." You have four color options. Update on July 9, 2012: I'm no longer finding anyone selling this bank.
Whether you're saving for a holiday, a baby, or new shoes - or a number of other options - there's a giant cash can designed specifically for you. Or you can put the money you used to spend on cigarettes into a special Turn Ash into Cash can.
Lionel makes banks shaped like railway cars - but then there's the Lionel Train Crossing Bank. To get the full kitschy experience, go to the LionelTV web site to see the ad. (Warning: It will start blasting the ad at you as soon as you go to the site.) Update on July 9, 2012: I'm no longer finding any place selling this bank.
