Treasure Chest Locking Money Box

Words & Images - Karen Hughes

10yr old me used to love leafing through the Argos catalogue, taking in all the exciting toys, gadgets and even homeware. One item that I actually went as far as buying was this lockable plastic treasure chest, bought with some of the pocket money that I intended to store in it. I imagine most children find the idea of pirate treasure to be exciting, and the opportunity to secure all the secrets kept by a 10 year old (mainly cheat codes for video games written on scraps of paper) in it was too tempting to resist.

Once unlocked with the high security metal key, you could access one of the two storage areas, either the pull out drawer, or area hidden under the hinged lid.
