This Week’s Featured Swag
This adorable bank from the Shine Corporation manages to turn money saving from a chore, to an 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 iconic mascot Kumamon peeks out, pulling the coin into the box as his theme song plays.
It’s a charming product, that belongs in the collections of fans everywhere… or just people who think stuff like a mascot that bungee jumps for the enjoyment of random strangers is awesome.
