I don’t necessarily think there’s anything wrong with trying to teach kids the value of a buck or encouraging them to save a few dollars, but I don’t think the age group this bank is targeting are that concerned with having a healthy retirement fund one day. Every time they insert a coin into the bank an interactive fish named Gill (I don’t get it) will reward your kid with a “cool animation.” The money they deposit is automatically counted and their total savings is displayed on the LCD screen. Your kids will also be responsible for feeding Gill on a daily basis and keeping his tank clean, though I don’t know what the consequences are if they forget. (Terrible interest rates?) Of course if your kid is actually trying to save money for something, they’ll want to make sure they factor in an additional $52 (£29.99) to cover the cost of the bank itself.
