I Can Has Coinage
When I was young, my cousin had a “Thing” bank . It had an Addams Family tie-in (basically the outer box). When you put your coin down, "Thing" would reach out and grab it and take it away for safe keeping. Although for some reason, Thing was green.
Today’s cool toy is the “Itazura Stealing Coin Cat Brown Chatora Kitty Coin Bank” . Whew!
Just place your coin on the little plate and the little kitten will come out and grab it and take it to some secret cat hiding place.
Before long he’ll have thousands of dollars of cat toys and you’ll need some cat handcuffs.
I’m guessing the "Chatora" part is a tie-in to Japanese Manga just the way the Thing Bank was a tie-in of a previous product to the Addams Family.
The Itazura Stealing Coin Kitty Bank is about $20.00.
Check out this amazing video of a xylophone constructed in the woods to promote the Touch Wood cell phone.
It’s supposedly entirely real with no tricks. I would think the timing would be better if it was done with any kind of CGI. But there may be a few camera cuts.
Anyway, it’s amazing to watch. Enjoy!
