“ Brand: Carte Blanche Greetings „
I love Tatty Teddy and was pleased to receive this money box as it looks really cute.
The money box is Tatty Ted shaped and has a texture that makes it look like the fur. It is grey all over as Tatty Ted is and the only colour on him is his blue nose.
The bear is positioned sat down so there is more room inside for the money.
As you would expect, the hole for the money is on top of its head. You can fit both coins and notes in easily (when notes are folded).
Underneath the bear is where the money comes out. There is a round rubber circle which blocks the hole when money is inside. This is very very hard to get in and out as there is nothing to grip onto when you take it out and you have to squash the whole thing in the hole to put it in.
Another problem with this money box is that the money gets stuck in the bears head. I once spent half an hour fiddling around with a pen trying to get a £20 note out. As this problem was persistent I now just have it for decorative purposes.
Overall, this is an adorable looking money box but it is not a practical shape. It is still good for those who like Tatty Ted but you may have to fight the bear for your money.
