Here is an adorable coin bank from the 50s. (Shout out to Becky and Dave – Is that you on the yellow banana?)
I have seen these occasionally come up for auction on eBay. I think they may have been used as a bank promotional item that would be imprinted with your local bank’s address. And if you ask me, that would be way better than a toaster. It measures 4.75″ x 3″ x 2.5″.
