This Spirited Away Piggy Bank Gobbles Up Your Change

You can now celebrate the classic anime film Spirited Away (2001) with a piggy bank based on the movie's most corruptible character, No-Face. In case you don't remember, the traveling spirit gets itself into a mess of trouble after being surrounded by the greed at The Bathhouse. After discovering that a little bit of fake gold can go a long way, the character ends up eating everything there (along with a few employees).

Now you can put No-Face's money grubbing to good use. The adorable piggy bank depicts No-Face in his normal state, but when you slip some coins in the red bowl, the spirit's mouth emerges to devour the offering (anything weighing over 1 ounce will trigger the sensor). The bank even burps after finishing its monetary meal. Along with burping, it also speaks and plays music from the movie.

The bank will hit Donguri Kyowakoku stores in Japan in May, but you can also buy it online. Pre-orders have already begun and you can grab one for 5184 yen (roughly $45).

If you can't cough up the gold (like No-Face) to buy this Ghibli-inspired money holder, consider one of the other coin stealing banks on the market.

Since The Mandalorian premiered last year, Star Wars fans have fallen head over heels for Baby Yoda, a.k.a. The Child. The new character's infectious cuteness has spawned a wide variety of memorabilia from the sci-fi series. If you are too excited to wait for season two and need your Baby Yoda fix now, you can buy a Baby Yoda Chia Pet, Baby Yoda Monopoly, and even The Mandalorian Christmas ornaments, which will be available online and in Hallmark stores this October. Filming on season two has concluded and is set to premiere this fall.

This year on May 4, otherwise known as Star Wars Day, General Mills revealed it would be releasing a Baby Yoda cereal, and we finally have the details. As reported by ComicBook.com, the food company announced that the new product will be available in a two-pack in July before a wider single-pack release in August.
