Tomy Unveils Exploding Piggy Bank

Piggy BankToy maker Takara Tomy Co on Thursday unveiled its "Savings Bomb," a piggy bank which "explodes" and scatters coins if users fail to save for a long time. The battery-powered toy — designed as a cartoon-style, ball-shaped black bomb with a skull and crossbones logo — lights up, makes a noise, shakes violently and scatters coins if it is not topped up for a long time. "Users must pick up and collect the scattered coins and reflect on their laziness," Takara Tomy said. It will go on sale next week with a price tag of about $27.
