Don’t let your savings fly away!
Your little aviator needs a place to keep all those quarters grandpa pulls out of his ear, right? Give him an airplane bank to keep on the shelf to store his savings. (I’m sure he’s saving up for flying lessons!)
Nice touches to add to a themed bedroom or just as a gift for an aviation lover. Cartoony styles for the nursery right through collectibles. The chunky cartoon styles are just adorable and perfect as a gift at a shower for a new baby boy. The bright colors should work with just about any of the various crib sets out there. The more collectible styles look like models and are great for older kids or anyone who happens to love aviation.
The silver version shown here is definitely meant as a baby gift, something that could turn into a collectible. The silver coloring makes it ok for an adult, but I still find the style of aircraft to be a bit childish. But your mileage may vary, as it does with just about any personal taste and style and gift.
My favorites are the ones for a nursery that aren’t the bright and brash colors. I love the soft shades on the traditional piggy shape painted with a plane on the side.
Cartoony Style Airplane Banks
Perfect for a nursery decor
Bright colors and chubby designs make these perfect for younger children. Several of these have a retro military style, perfect if you’re leaning that direction in your theme. The two bi-planes are also nice for a retro theme, although they aren’t in the typical muted colors you expect from that style.

So cute! The tail says “Oh, Boy! Airlines”
Child to Cherish Piggy Bank, Airplane
By far my favorite and definitely the odd one out as it’s an actual classic pig shape.

The jet looks as though it’s hovering in mid-air! In fact, it looks three-dimensional, so just where does the money go when you drop it in the top? Note that several reviews mention how small this money saver is, so keep that in mind. Better for a novelty gift or decorative object than for actual saving, it sounds like.
