As kids, we knew it as “kolo” but the more exposed, well traveled among us called it a “piggy bank“. Semantics. Whether in a square shaped wooden box or a fancy rubber pig with a thin opening for squeezing naira notes in, the most important thing was that money was being saved. Later, our parents would collect the monies we had saved to open a bank account for us. (It was really hard to believe our money was being saved and we weren’t able to see it. Haha)
