I can't remember if this little bank was left over from my own childhood or my son's. That's pretty pathetic, memory-wise, I know, but such is me these days.
Little Mr. Apple bank has entertained a lot of kids, and a few adults, over the years. The photos are pretty explanatory. You place a coin on the little stem. The eye flap lifts up and a smiling faced worm comes out and slides the coin inside the bank. At some point over the years, the plastic piece which snaps on to hold in the money disappeared. Not that we'd likely have left that money untouched. We won't talk about the number of times I slipped into one of the kid's piggy banks when change was needed. ;-)
In case you looked very closely, you may be wondering if this magical little bank makes change. It does not. I used a quarter in the first photograph, but later realized I forgot to photograph the little worm, and used a penny then.

Be sincere in your love for others. Hate everything that is evil and hold tight to everything that is good. Love each other as brothers and sisters and honor others more than you do yourself.
