Here’s how it works:
You place a coin on the fish bone-shaped button on the top of the piggy bank, which alarms the small kitty that lives inside the savings box. It meows, opens the lid with its head, reaches out its paw, grabs the coin and moves back into the box with another meow.
The battery-powered Itazura Bank is sized at W120mm×H115mm×D100mm and available in four versions: white kitty, brown kitty, white puppy and brown puppy. People living outside Japan can pre-order the money box over at the Japan Trend Shop for $31.
