Where Can I Find a Jumbo Piggy Bank?

Hi Ladies! I'm hoping that somebody might be able to help me on this one. Five yrs ago, my mother-in-law bought a jumbo piggy bank from Crayola when I had my first child. She hand painted shapes and my son's name on it. My younger son is now old enough to notice that he doesn't have a special piggy bank like his big brother and unfortunately Crayola no longer sells this item. I thought about adding my younger boy's name to it, but my MIL had it glazed or something and I don't think it would look right if I painted on top. Does anybody know where I can find something similar? This one is a pig shaped white ceramic bank and is about 1 foot square in size. Thank you for any suggestions!

What can I do next?

Thank you! I hadn't even thought of Target but I will check it out and do some more ebay searching. I appreciate the help!

Try Target - they have some big piggy banks. If you want something hand painted try a paint your own pottery place - they usually have banks as well.

They have big ones right now at Target that are already decorated, but you could probably paint a name on them. Also, look on Ebay, I saw Crayola ones on there!

Hi V.,

I have seen big piggy banks that you can decorate yourself over at Michaels and I think that I have seen them at JoAnns Fabrics as well! Good luck!

Have you called around to the pottery/ceramic places where you go, paint the piece, and then leave it for them to fire? They go by different names around here like Bisque & Brew or Color Me Mine... I am assuming they are all franchises.

Target has great selections.

My favorite is a Chalk Board Piggy Bank. It is painted in chalk board paint and can use chalk to write on it.
