The lonely spirit Kaonashi from director Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away is known for his insatiable appetite. He’s also known for his deceptive ways, producing gold from his belly to con others into doing his bidding. This Kaonashi Coin Bank from toymaker Donguri Sora is no different.
To see Kaonashi in action, place coins on the red dish until Kaonishi is satisfied (around 30 grams). The weight will trigger a battery-powered eating effect where Kaonishi lifts the dish pouring the coins into his toothy mouth. At the same time, you’ll hear Kaonishi say “Ah” followed by Studio Ghibli music and a burp of satisfaction. The good news is that, unlike in the Academy Award-winning film, this Kaonashi regurgitates coins in their original form.
