the ‘babe’ piggy bank, by taiwanese studio go goldfish, takes a different approach to coin accessibility. staying true to the ‘break it to take it’ philosophy, ‘babe’ is made of wax, and must be burned like a candle to get to its contents. fat little bellies allow for plentiful storage, and if utilized often, makes each melting-session a worthy payout. ‘babe’ piggy banks are made by hand in taiwan.
