Before you start filling the nursery shelves with so many books, figurines, and stuffed animals, there’s a useful and aesthetically pleasing item that you might be missing. No nursery is complete without a baby bank. Unlike most nursery decor, baby banks grow with your little one. At first, it acts as a nice centerpiece, fitting in with the animal, globetrotting, or princess theme of the room. As they grow, you can use the bank to teach them all about the wonders of saving money for the future. Their bits of pocket change or chore allowance add up to a real haul. Luckily, baby banks come in a variety of shapes and sizes that your little one is sure to love.
