FACE BANK

I bought two banks from a Japanese website called Strapya. They were around $20 each. I got this and another bank, and the total shipping for both was only $5. That boggles my mind how I can get something shipped from Japan for $5. I recently bought an $8 How-to-Draw book from here in the USA and the shipping was an additional $8.

There are motion sensors in the eyes and that triggers the chomping.


Look at this thing go!

  2. Awesome!
    The bank that stares you down as it eats your money!
    Those eyes seem to follow! The rubbery face eatin' action is the coolest!

  3. Mykal, I agree with you. it's somewhere in the uncanny valley. it's just a little too real to be cute.

    Apocolyte, you are right the eyes follow. if i were alone in the house with just this bank i think i'd be tempted to turn it facing the wall.
