This toy entertains our girls for hours! I bought it for them when they were 13 months old, and they have been consistantly playing with it for five months! The price is very reasonable for the amount of entertainment received. And our door falls off too (when pulled off) and it is easy to put back on - no big deal.

Ok, I have to admit that one of the first things that drew me to this toy was the cute little songs it sings. We don't purchase many talking toys for our house, but I made an exception for this one. It is not annoying at all, and it has a volume switch.

You can press the piggy's nose to hear several little dittys, or put coins in the slot and it will sing or count, depending on if it is switched to the "music" mode or "counting" mode.

At the time we got it, my baby was really into "putting and taking", and now that he is a little older we use it to teach colors.

I considered giving only 4 stars because the door seems just a little on the flimsy side and ours doesn't close exactly evenly like it should, but I am picky and overall this is a 5 star toy. I liked it so much I got one for my friend's baby for his 1st birthday.

I run an indoor playground for small children and this is one of the favorite toys, regardless of the child's age. It is cute and is great for building hand-eye coordination.

I bought this for my 9 month old son. I think the concept is neat; however this toy needs improvement. The toy is faulty because the door does not want to stay closed and after you put in a few coins it pops open on its own. After you add a coin, then the toy exclaims "one", then you add another coin and the toy counts "two". We have had problems where if you add a coin, then push the nose, then go to add another coin, then the toy looses track and does not count consecutively, which is confusing for a child learning to count. I was really disappointed that it only plays 3 songs or so and they are not very fun. I do like the volume feature and the coins are cool colors!

I bought this toy for my daughter last week when she turned one. It's really cute, and even my 2 and 4 year old boys like it. One thing I do love is that the volume is LOW! It's so refreshing to have a toy that doesn't annoy the &^%* out of us!

However, my two year old pulled the door off with no effort at all. He just reached over and popped it off. Now every time I snap it back on (it does snap in easily), it doesn't stay. It falls off constantly and drives me crazy.

But other than that, it's a cute toy.

My 1 year old saw this toy at a friend's house and everytime we went there she played with it. I got it for her and I ask her to go get her pig and she gets it. She LOVES the pig! She plays with it at least once a day. The plastic door does fall off a lot, but it's easy to put back on. The volume is very low so you won't get a headache. The songs are cute and catchy. If your child loves putting things into other things, this is the toy to get. If you have the Fisher Price Oreo Matching Middles toy, the halves of the oreos fit in the pig too and make it that much more fun!

We've had this piggy bank for about 3 years now. Early on his door broke, and it only takes a coin or two in the slot before it pops open and the counting starts over at one, but I never relied on this toy for teaching numbers, so it's really just a minor annoyance. The kids don't care. They LOVE this toy. The youngest (1.5 years) loves sorting the coins, and carting them around the house in shopping carts and wagons. The eldest (3.5 years) will occasionally sort them, but these days she prefers to play pretend that the coins are cookies and other creative things. They both love to dance around to the music, and will play the songs until I have them stuck in my head for the rest of the evening. Usually I hate these electronic songs that accompany the new wave of "learning" toys, but these are actually catchy and kind of cute.

I'd never imagined when buying this toy that it would have such open-ended functions, but it has truly had enduring entertainment value.

Lately we've been weeding out a lot of our plastic China-manufactured toys, but I think the pig will have to stay. The kids love him, and they've had such fun with him, that he seems to be a permanent member of the family.

This toy has some really great qualities...It plays some cute tumes that the kids like to dance to and the brightly colored money is fun to play with even on its own. However, the slot for the money is too narrow for my daughter 13 month old to get the coins into. Perhaps this will change as she gets older. But my main gripe is that the door that is suppose to open so to get the money out is VERY difficult to open. My daughter can't do it. neither can her 2.5 yr old cousin or the 3.5 yr old I babysit. The coins go in but don't come out which leads to tears of frustration from both my daughter and myself. the kids have to bring me the pig to get out the coins which defeats the purpose of toy.
****UPDATE****
After much use, the diffucult-to-open door has been broken in and is not such a hassel to get open. My daughter is now two and still loves to play with this pig. She has learned about real money and has a piggy bank for loose change. After putting real money into her piggy bank she always runs to get this piggy toy to keep the money-collecting fun going. My daughter likes the counting along with pig and she has also taken to teaching her baby brother how to use it. He's only six months old but he still loves to eat the coins and laughs at the songs. I would now reccomend this product and wish I had given it more stars because rarely do baby toys get used for so long!

I just bought this for my 19month old son. It was the last one they had on the shelf. He absolutely loves it! He has been playing with it for over an hour. I do have to agree with the other reviews about the door. Its not exactly flimsy but it does come off if pulled too hard, but its not that bad. Overall I think this is a wonderful fun educational toy. I highly reccomend it.

I had seen this on the toy store shelves and thought it looked boring but my mother in law bought this for our 2 1/2 year daughter and she loves it.Yes we have also had the problem with the door but it does go back on.It is better that it does give rather than gets broken altogther.My daughter loves too sort the coins into colours or the next time she might sort into the sizes.Like most toddlers she loves to open and close the door,take the coins in and out.At other times she will just dance to the music.I was totally surprised how many games could be made out of this toy and how many different things it would teach.Like the colours, manners(excuse me),size, numbers, songs.Overall we are very happy with this toy.
