Freaky 'Face Bank' teaches children frugality and fear

0

Piggy/Money banks have long been a wonderful vehicle for demonstrating to children the old adage: ‘Look after the cents and the dollars will looks after themselves.’¬†However, that lesson in saving is somewhat diminished when the actual process of saving scares the bejesus out of the little tykes.

Take this “Face Bank”, which gobbles down each coin with ghoulish realism. The original model had eyes, but (perhaps moved by reports that it was inspiring night terrors in children) the makers updated it last year, removing the eyes and adding a nose, Easter Island style.

It’s sure to produce a steely new breed of entrepreneur.
