The Banpresto Face Bank Gobbles Up Your Money

Face Bank is a unique piggy bank and also a money-gobbling machine. The greedy face “smells” coins when you bring them close to its face, and opens its mouth in hunger.

Once it is given a coin to eat, the Face Bank actually makes a chewing motion. Although this gobbling money machine seems to be starving, it can only hold 30 coins.

Implications - When it comes to storing money, consumers are looking for creative ways to hold their cash outside of the bank. Much like many retro items, the traditional fashion of piggy banks haven't gone out of style and is now making a strong comeback with modern designs that reflects the present. With the popularity in vintage items being reborn with contemporary designs, it's no surprise that consumers are reverting to the old ways thanks to ground-breaking designers and brands.
