Ehh, piggy bank???
When abroad a piggy bank collector wants to find genuine piggy banks. To find them one has to ask someone in the street, in the hotel, in the (antique or souvenir) shop, or asked a tourist board. Then the problem arises that you have no idea of the proper word for piggy bank in the language of the country you’re visiting.
To help, you and myself I have made a list. It is of relevance to know that “piggy bank” (as you well know) in fact means a container to put money in, a savings bank. In some translations it can even mean a cash register. I tried to translate or describe the word or term ‘piggy bank I the shape of a pig’.
All the given translations are checked with Google, they all present real pig piggy banks as picture.
