Getting Piggy With It! #PigsByKids

Remember the Natwest Piggies from when we were children?

When a child's bank account was first opened they were given Woody (the baby and incidentally I still have him in the attic!) and for every £25 in the account the children would receive another member of the family. They were designed to encourage children to save, and were much sought after.

Natwest are relaunching the Piggies to encourage children to start saving from a young age. The #PigsByKids competition enables children (13 and younger) to have the chance to make history by designing the new NatWest pig. Entering is simple and requires registering, choosing a pig, designing a pig and creating a story, and then submitting a picture of him or her through the site.

Natwest kindly sent us some craft materials to have a go at making our own piggy bank.


We started doing one together but my son is a little… independent and decided to make his own instead! What do you think? (And yes I know the saving hole is on the side!)

I think he'd be a great new pig on the shelves of children all over the nation, don't you?


  • The competition is open to children up to 13 years old;
  • The winning design wil become the new Natwest pig;
  • Closing date for entries if 12pm on 11th November 2012;
  • Terms & Conditions apply (see website for details)

This is an advertising promotion for Natwest.

We were sent a box of craft goodies to help us make our own piggy bank and advertise the competition.
