The currency of choice in the Mushroom Kingdom is the Gold Coin. But here in the real world, it’s pretty rare that you’ll come across coins made out of anything besides nickel, zinc, copper, or if you’re really lucky, silver.
When it comes to piggy banks, they come in all shapes and sizes. However, there’s one thing pretty much all of them have in common – a single slot for coins. Why is this? Well, the guys at 25TOGO think it’s time for a new kind of piggy bank; one with more than two dozen coin slots.
I long ago left the old T-45 Power armor behind, and now schlep around the wasteland in by badass flamed out X-01 power armor. T-45 is for plebs. ThinkGeek has a sweet Fallout Power Helmet coin bank that will hold your quarters, but won’t hold caps because the slot is too thin.
Normally when I want to save my quarters, I just toss them in this jar my wife has on the nightstand, or I just leave them in my pockets so they can fall out in the dryer and make an incredible racket.
Redditor qvm has a new motivation to save coins, and perhaps even earn some. They made a piggy bank with a fake skull on it that sings a song when you insert a coin.
A servo attached to the inside of the skull moves its jaw as the song plays.
Protecting your change from thieves can be a big challenge. I used to steal all my dad’s quarters growing up to buy gummy bears. If he had one of these Cthulhu piggy banks, I’d still steal his change, but I might pause briefly to think about it.
If you have ever played the Diablo games, you will recognize this guy as a treasure goblin from Diablo III. You can now get this goblin as a piggy bank to help you save your pennies for that next expansion pack you want to buy.
The fragile nature of the traditional piggy bank was meant to force you to save your money until you really needed it, but it also meant you couldn’t count how much you already saved unless you break the thing open.
I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us…
This Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is not here to demolish your city – in fact he’s here to help you save money, so you can start rebuilding it.
If you think about it, Han Solo frozen in carbonite was Boba Fett’s piggy bank. He turned him in to Jabba The Hutt for a tidy sum of money. Now you can be like Boba Fett and store your money in this Han Solo in Carbonite bank.
Apparently, rocking chairs are pretty hot commodities nowadays. Following fast on the heels of the Rocking-Knit chair and the iRock is the Artful Dodger. Doesn’t sound like something you’d name a rocking chair, but designer Sam LOmingshum (no, that uppercase “O” isn’t a typo) did so with good reason.
Life’s tough. Sometimes, it feels good to hash things out with friends or family to get rid of the negativity. But when you feel like keeping things to yourself but want to express your emotions, then you’ve got the Corezone to turn to.
I was raised by my parents to be an extremely thrifty girl. And I was am one, unless I find myself face-to-face with these items that I simply cannot walk away from: clothes, shoes, makeup, accessories, or perfume.
