It's perhaps an extension of the dragon theme that is so popular all over Asia: dinosaurs are big in Japan! There are whole museums devoted to them, not to mention a mountain of dinosaur-related products available for all ages. And one of the most original among them is the Hatching Tyrannosaurus Egg Coin Bank, a great way to teach your children how to save money - and how dinosaurs are born!
The Hatching Tyrannosaurus Egg Coin Bank works with 100-yen coins or coins of an equivalent 22.6 mm (0.89") diameter in any other currency. Every time you put one in its base, you are allowed to turn the base a little and the egg starts to crack. By the time you hit its full capacity (20 coins), the T-Rex will have popped out! And if you'd rather have your children not making the money connection, you can dismantle it from the base and just enjoy it as a toy.
