From my childhood

With all the fuss over banks “banning” piggy banks, I discovered this figure from my childhood.

A memory worth £4 you think?

Just goes to show, though that the hype around the banning of piggy banks is just a load of nonsense. Banks have always used a variety of shapes for money boxes and rarely give out pigs. Nat Wests collectable pottery pigs being the notable exception. Choosing not to give out pig shaped money boxes is not an assault on British culture, that say changing the name of St Bart’s hospital would be.

PS if you have a Nat West baby pig (but not the rest of the set) in perfect condition and want to sell it, please get in touch.
