The piggy bank production requires a multiple-step process from clay molding and drying to baking and painting.
In the Year of the Pig, piggy banks are a symbol of prosperity. Cute clay piggy banks in all sizes and colors are often part of childhood memories in Vietnam. These piggy banks, which have an inserting slot and no opening, are made to help kids form the habit of thrift and saving. Therefore, the only way to retrieve the money is to smash these piggy banks. Doing so allows the owner of a piggy bank to feel great when he or she enjoys his or her savings.
