We received a Samuel Adams beer bottle bank many years ago (at least 5), and it has stood the test of time. When I was a child, I was devastated when my Coke bottle bank broke - it wasn't even 1/5 full when it happened.
It has the capacity to hold a lot of change, and has a large enough slot at the top for my 2-year-old to drop coins in. We have filled it a couple of times - besides being hard to tip when it's almost full (to get the change out), we haven't had any problems.
I think that these types of banks, in general, are a fun way to save money. They hold a lot of change, and can be used on a rainy day. Ironically, we used to save for beer with this bank - now it is one of the ways that we are saving for our son's college!
