Some of you might’ve liked the Sutakora Cat & Mouse Coin Bank and the Crafty Cat Bank. But if you’re a dog person, you’d probably go head over dog heels for the Choken Bako Robotic Doggy Bank. Looks like the piggy bank has been upstaged once again.
Choken Bako Robotic Doggy Bank
- Takes most sizes of coins
- Breed/version: Shiro (white), Kuro (black), Cha (brown and white), Buchi (white and black), Mayu (yellow and black)
- Manual: Japanese, but easy to understand
The bank pup mimics the exuberance most canines have while munching their nibblets. These coin banks feature different dogs, so you can pick the one that looks most like your dog or the one you’d pick out. They all have googly eyes, a pink tongue sticking out, and floppy, wiggly ears.
If you have a kid who’s begging for a dog, maybe you can motivate him/her to save up money for it with this bank. It’s taken me over three decades to fulfill this dream, but it’s never to early to start saving.
The Choken Bako Doggy Bank has been somewhat of a sensation in the press. It’s been featured on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, on CNN, and has won an award in the “Hot Novelty” category from the UK’s Giftware Association.
