This is the biggest piece of rubbish I have had the misfortune to buy,the idea might be great if you can get one that works.I have now purchased and had replaced 3 of these all of which had different faults.I then decided to buy the newer model at extra cost and guess what this one does not work either,it is now 5pm on Christmas Eve and I am short of 1 of my Grandsons presents not to mention not full of Christmas cheer,I thought the name Science Museum would mean that you would get a good quality product not a cheap made in China piece of rubbish,this one will be going back after Christmas and I hope to never see one again,if it was not for my Grandson really wanting one I would have given up after the first 2.

This is quite possibly one of the most irritating pieces of plastic on the planet. My daughter wanted one of these for ages so when she saw it was in the sale for £9.99 she bought it. They normally retail at £19.99 and are available from Argos, Comet and other retailers. The robot itself looks fairly cool, although a bit more like a spaceman than a robot.

Most people will think it recognises the size of the coin but supposedly it works out which coins are put into it by its metal content. It gives the owner a challenge to prove this by asking to put in a froeign coin to see if the robot Bank recognises it or not in the instructions. Many features are also included with this item such as time/date/alarm clock functions, balance display, the ability to set a saving target. If the saver wishes to make a withdrawl ...

I bought this for my sonís Christmas as a little extra present I thought he might like. Before this purchase he was forever emptying out his old piggy bank and counting his pennies the miserly little sod. Now a little bit about my son, He is 7 and a half years old, and doesnít like spending his own money if he can help it (yup Iíve taught him well) Every time we go shopping he asks for something, I usually say of course you can have itÖ.if you have enough money that is? This usually makes him think twice about wanting it! So back to the Bank... I paid £19.99 for this from Argos and it is also available from www.sciencemuseumstore.com ... Read the complete review
