With regard to updates, the Flyfish Money Box and Zak Designs BB-8 Droid have been removed, the former due to quality concerns, and the latter due to availability issues. In their place, we've added the Liberty Imports Robotic Dog, which features a similar design to the Flyfish Money Box, and the Star Wars Official Darth Vader, which, like the Zak Designs BB-8 Droid, boasts a ceramic build with a high-shine finish and substantial change-holding capacity. The Pearhead Ceramic now occupies the top spot, upgraded for its multiple color and pattern options, simple yet charming design, and durability.

The Giantsuper Smart Piggy Trio was removed due to availability issues and replaced with the Smart Beast Trio, which is made by the same design- and education-oriented toy company and has received similarly high reviews. Added the Wait Fly Dinosaur to provide families with an effective and engaging option for teaching smart budgeting habits to especially young children. It should be noted, however, that even though this particular piggy bank is appropriate for kids as young as 16 months, all activity involving coins should be supervised to ensure safety.
