Look what Collin made! Not only is this a working coin bank...it's a safe with a locking mechanism. Amazing. Read the full post at A Number of Things for more photos.

Love it! My son is only 5, but likes to create with Legos all the time. I also teach middle school with Lego Mindstorm Robotics. It is a never-ending playtime for me.

This is a very nice coin bank.
how can i open it if the coin bank is full?

Hrm. Good question, Jacob. A design challenge!
