Big Belly Dinosaur Banks are coinivores

We'll admit that we're huge fans of piggy (or dinosaur) banks (check out the talking Piggy Bank), but we don't go about choosing which coin banks to carry all willy-nilly-like. There has to be a little something...dare I say...magical about the bank before we start trying to shove it down our customer's throats.

The Big Belly Bank Coinasaurus certainly fits the bill! It stands in at a little over a foot and a half tall (20" to be exact) and features a patented rail system for gobbling up quarters, nickels, dimes, and pennies with gusto. Kids will delight in watching each coin travel the curvy path from the dino's mouth to his big belly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Can the Big Belly Dinosaur Bank hold half-dollars, dollar bills, or treasury bills?

If those items are the same size and shape of a quarter, nickel, dime, or penny, then yes! The Big Belly Bank is not designed for "rail traffic" that is larger than a quarter. You can easily open the belly if you want to add dollar bills.

Question: How do I open the Dinosaur's big belly?

First, you'll need to purchase the Big Belly Bank Coinasaurus from Vat19.com. Once your shiny Vat19.com box arrives and you've opened the Triple-B-C (that's industry lingo for the Big Belly Bank Coinasaurus), you'll find that there is a long bolt that holds together the two sides of the clear belly. Unscrew that bolt to open 'er up.

Question: How do the coins stay in the track?

The track is grooved and can only accept coins in one orientation. When they reach the bottom of the Coinasaurus' track, they drop into the Dinosaur's big belly.

Question: Can the Big Belly Bank eat any currency?

Possibly. You'd have to measure the coins and compare them to U.S. pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. The Big Belly Bank Dinosaur prefers to snack on US coins.
