Juan Or's CIMB-Toy Story Coinbox is Finally Here!

This is actually an outdated post dating back to 9th August 2010.

Remember Mommy opening a CIMB Junior Account for Juan Or just to get the Toy Story stuff? Well, the CIMB-Toy Story coinbox wich requires at least RM500 deposit for 1 month after opening the account, is now in Juan Or's hand already! Actually Mommy wanted to go to CIMB to claim the coinbox on 30th July 2010 which is exactly 1 month from opening the account. However, we went to Cameron Highlands that day, so Mommy had to postpone claiming it. Then the following week, Mommy went to CIMB to claim it, only to be told that all the coinboxes had gone out of stock, so all CIMB branches were waiting for the headquarter to send a new batch of the coinboxes. Then, finally on 9th August, Mommy received a phone call from Taman Connought's CIMB branch to ask Mommy to come collect it. So now, here it is with Juan Or playing and fiddling with his coinbox:




P/S: The thing that you see him putting into the coinbox is not a coin, instead it's his foam bullet from his toy gun!



After that, Mommy asked Juan Or to pose together with the coinbox, but with a smile. There you go.....




.....which seems to look more like a forced smile, but the smile quickly turned into......





.......a cheeky face!


And here's the back view of the coinbox.



Overall, the quality of the plastic coinbox is good, unlike some free coinbox (that Mommy got before as an incentive for signing up for a credit card) whereby the plastic feels thin and brittle. Even Mommy's close colleague who managed to catch sight of the coinbox before Mommy brought it home also commented that this coinbox's quality is better than Maybank's pencil-shaped coinbox whereby its picture design has some sticky feel to the touch.

By the way, after this playing and fiddling session, Mommy has to put a stop to Juan Or making contact with the coinbox because this boy is getting very destructive! The coinbox is still brandnew, but Juan Or has already left an 'imprint' of a visible (and ugly!) scratch on the front see-through layer, much to Mommy's dismay. He even used his Buzz Lightyear miniature figurine to repeatedly knock and scrape the surface of the coinbox! So Mommy quickly grabbed the coinbox away from him before further damage is done and kept it in the glass display cabinet! Phew! Looks like the coinbox still has to wait till Juan Or is old enough to appreciate it.

When Juan Or has grown up a bit, you can let him put in coins into the coinbox everday. The coinbox looked really cool.

Sheoh Yan, yup, will do. If let him do it now, he most likely will damage the coinbox in the process.

Alice Law, oh, yes, my heart was 'scratched' when I saw that obvious scratch mark. :-( Thanks, you too!

Smallkucing, yes, it's a good habit. Hahaha....can bring him to the in-laws' place with him holding his coinbox like a toy, then he will automatically ask them for money to put and the doting grandparents will surely give! Hahaha! *evil grin*

LilHyppo's mummy, yes, this boy is treating the thing more like his toy rather than a coinbox.
