A Naughty Kitty

Ever wonder where your money goes? Blame the kitty! When you’re not looking, he snatches your coins and spends it on fresh milk.

Actually, he’s a coin bank ($15.98), helping you save up for your next vacation. And he’s the most adorable bank ever!

He hides in an fruit crate, and when you place a coin on the box he creeps out just to the point where you can see the whites of his tiny eyes. He has a few friends, too — chihuahuas, bulldogs and tiger-cats hiding out in an assortment of storage boxes — all ready protect your quarters from robbers and arcade games.

Loyal Japanizmo readers should know that elaborate coin banks are good and plenty in Japan. An empty pickle jar would do the trick, but as they say, “Gotta spend money to make money.”

For the Love of Trains and Loose Change

I’m getting a major wave of nostalgia watching this video right now:

This coin bank plays all the tunes I used to hear just before hopping onto a Tokyo train. I’m having these flashbacks of me trying to squeeze into a car that’s packed with morning commuters. Aiyah~ why do we do these things?!

Strangely, I miss my daily rendezvous with Japanese public transportation. That’s why I want this coin bank so much. Every time you throw in a coin, the headlamps turn on and it plays all the tunes heard from the station platform.

In a city of 13 million, not everyone takes the same commuter train; that’s why there’s four different types to represent some of the more popular trains: Yamanote line, Chuo line, Keihin-Tohoku and the ever-popular shinkansen. They’re perfectly detailed like the real thing. You can even open and close its doors. Neat!

Though be warned, these train banks will burn a $60 hole in your wallet. So the challenge is to see how fast you can return that money to your bank. Faster than a speeding bullet? Let’s hope so!
