    Great coin counting jar! This is a very nice and accurate coin counting jar. First thing that I noticed is that the jar is made out of high quality plastic. I’ve seen many other coin counters made out of very thin cheap chincy plastic that looks like it is made from a cheap water bottle. This also has a nice top that is accurate and also has a feature that can subtract money. It never made a mistake in counting for me. The size is just about right because it isn’t too big or too small. If you expect to put in a couple hundred dollars in mixed coins, you may want to look for something else though. The only negative that I can see is that the amount always remains showing which seems to be a waste of battery power but some people may prefer it showing all the time. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.PS. The coin counting mechanism is based on measurement of the coin so one has to put the coin through the slot from the left side. If someone puts a coin and pushes/pulls it to the center rather than pushing the coin down from left side, it may get a wrong reading. As long as you put the coin in correctly, it should always get a correct reading.

    Coin Counter Mug I gave it to my husband because he has a lot of coins laying around in the car. And he love it. It tells him how much change he have at hand and he can subtract when he uses it. Two thumbs up…….

    why is a bank listed as a toy? It’s a bank that fits in a car’s cupholder. So I’m not sure why Amazon classifies this as a toy and wants me to talk about how much fun it is. OK. It’s not “fun” at all. It’s a bank. I bought two of them as gifts for people old enough to drive and own their own cars.The plastic is probably sturdier than some but it still seems a bit more fragile than I expected. I like the feature of being able to subtract from the running total when you take money out.Since they were purchased as gifts, I can’t speak for the durability or functionality.I was, however, very disappointed in the packaging. This was ordered from Amazon but filled by another company and I was not happy with the way they sent it. Two plastic banks in not sturdy cardboard boxes were mailed in one of those thin envelopes that you can’t tear. There was no protection whatsoever so of course the boxes were crushed. Not cool when it’s supposed to be a gift. I examined the banks carefully and they do not seem to be cracked or damaged. But the crushed boxes make it look like this is some last-minute crappy gift I picked out of a clearance bin at Big Lots instead of the thoughtful, plan-ahead gift it really is.Overall, I think this is a great item and it will make a nice gift. But it should not be classified as a toy and the packaging definitely needs to be improved.
