If you like to save your change, you could just toss it all in a big mason jar and watch it pile up. or, if you prefer a bit more fun in your life, you could let Pikachu save it for you.

This type of coin bank (called “itazura,” meaning prank) has been popular in Japan for years now, but this version is especially for fans of Pokémon. Place a coin on the holder on top and wait for Pikachu to come up and take it for you while making cute sounds!

Isn’t it delightful? These sell on Amazon for $36.49 and also come in Godzilla and Hello Kitty versions. If that price is too rich for your blood, the original cat version of the bank is only $13.95, so you should go check it out. 

And yes, it meows when it takes your money.
