When we have spare change it can clog up our wallets or purses. The best solution, rather than wasting the coins on useless items, is to pop in them in a money box.
Our list of amazing money boxes aims to help make saving coins more fun and inspiring.

Turn your dreams into reality and transform the act of depositing a coin into your money box a glorious goal-scoring moment of sporting triumph! Yes with the Goal! Football Coin Box just place the coin in the slot and watch the football player dribble it around till he's in position. And then he shoots! Goal! And the coin is deposited inside the bank for safekeeping. Watch the video to see what we mean!
A truly "piggy" bank, this coin box will really keep your money safe for you! So much so you can't even open it up. If you're one of those people who simply cannot save money, the Oincoin Piggy Bank will force you to keep away from your loose change. Once you've popped the coins into the white pig, there's no way you can get to them.
Well, actually, there is a way: you break open the Oincoin! Yes, once you've reached your saving target or if one day you are really desperate for money, then you should take a hammer and smash the piggy bank. Made from Arita-yaki ceramic from Saga in southern Japan, the porcelain pig is cute but only partly practical!
The Itazura series of money boxes, where cheeky cats and other creatures pop up to "steal" your coin, is one of Japan Trend Shop's favourite bestsellers. And we're delighted that the resurgence of the Godzilla franchise has meant more items like this: the Godzilla Coin Bank Itazura Money Box. Place your coin on the rock "island" and before long Japan's most famous movie monster will appear, roar with eyes lit up, and then snatch your coin down into the depths of the ocean. The unique money box features eight types of voice and sound effects, as well as illustrations by Godzilla designer Shinji Nishikawa. The top of the bank is a sea scene, with two islands and a navy ship. But no one is safe from Godzilla!
The Itazura line of coin banks make saving spare change an adorable experience, and they've chosen a real cute heavyweight for their latest installment. The Pikachu Itazura Piggy Bank finds the world's most famous Pokemon character hiding in a box, waiting to collect your money and save it for you. After returning from a long day outside your home...say, playing Pokemon Go... just place any leftover 500-yen coins (or similarly sized money) on the yellow top, and Pikachu will come out and store it away for you!
• Add coins to the Emergency Break Glass Money Box at your own risk: only by smashing the glass can they be retrieved.
• As you watch your money literally build-up, you will be torn between the desire to save more or cash in.
• With money rapidly disappearing into plastic cards and online transactions, the physical presence of the 'In Case of Emergency' money box will make you think more carefully before you decide to splash out. What will be your moment of need?
• Break glass to access your savings.
• Screws to the wall or sits on your desk.
If you own a bank you have the luxury of being able to keep all your money in a sealed, heated, laser beam protected bunker with a big heavy door and an intimidating safe thing on the front. But for us, the general public, this is not an option. We have to find some other way of keeping our cash safe. We are all for laser beams and scary looking doors, but if your room isn't done out in Alcatraz-chic, you might need something a little more in keeping with the decor.
Animal-lovers will adore this fun and cute way to save your money! The Itazura Bank is another great coin bank toy. In Japanese itazura means to play a trick on someone - and that is exactly what this feline character does! He takes your money!
It might look like just a box of fruit or instant noodles but beware! Place your coin on the appropriately fish-themed button and soon the box will open. A meowing cat appears and with its paw, takes the money!
