The bank was not at all what I thought it was going to be. Besides the fact I had a very difficult time removing the screw to the battery holder, I found the proudct itself to be cheaply made. Additionally, I have since seen various types of similar banks in department stores and they were not only comparable in price, but they were also more sturdy and of better quality.
It never turns off - ever! The counter screen always remains on so it runs down the batteries. Seems like it should "power-down" after a short time of non-use. But it doesn't. Other than that it's ok. Just a plastic jar (like a peanut-butter jar). But 9 yr.old son loves it.

i bought this as a gift for my 8 year old sister. She absolutely loved it. She wanted to put change in it right away. I wish I had bought it for me and I'm 20 years old, haha. Well it is a great gift idea for kids, and if you know someone with a lot of change, it may be a good gift for them too.
It is a durable bank, and is good for young children, since it is all plastic. Only complaint is that the digital counter of the money does not go into sleep mode. It just stays on and wears down the battery. Also, would have been nice if it would have taken .50 cent pieces, and had a place where bills could be put into the jar.
I bought this for my 3 year old son. I thought he would have fun putting his money in his bank and watching the numbers increase. I have placed this item back in the box. The coins are hard to push through and for a small child its pretty much impossible.
Not the highest quality. It sometimes doesn't detect the coin, so you have to put them in very slowly. Other times the screen decides not to add it up, or it'll just randomly zero-out. So then you have to take all the coins out and put them all in again in order to get a proper tally amount. Kind of disappointing.
