This Week’s Featured Swag
This adorable bank from the Shine Corporation manages to turn money saving from a chore, to an adorably addictive experience. The exterior of the bank features a non-descript box. Place a coin on the plate, though, and the bank springs to life!
The lid opens, and an adorable tabby cat peeks out, letting out a small meow before pulling the coin in with its paw.
It’s a charming product, that belongs in the collections of cat fans everywhere… or just people who watch too many cat videos on YouTube!
