Difficult to Open door,
This review is from: Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn: Learning Piggy Bank (Toy)
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.
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!

Hmm I think that most real piggy banks are also meant to be hard to get money out of, perhaps that could also part of the point of this toy? This way, the parent can be part of the action..
