Laughing all the way to the bank!
The new arcade game piggy bank from Strapya World features Tetris or Atari Breakout. Playing these retro games at the local arcade used to cost us rolls of quarters, but no longer - now playing can actually SAVE you money!
Arcade games of the 1980s were notorious money magnets that had parents pulling out their hair and kids pulling up sofa cushions to look for quarters. We're older now and our parents - and some of us - have no more hair to pull, but the appeal of classic early video games is timeless.
Now Strapya World of Tokyo, Japan has repackaged two of our fave games - Atari Breakout and Tetris - into smaller consoles that will cost you in the short term but pay off in the long run. That's because YOU own the game, which doubles as a piggy bank!
Here's a video of the Arcade Game Piggy Bank in action. Note the authentic gameplay and cheesy chirping electronic sound effects that were, for a time, the soundtracks of our lives:
The Arcade Game Piggy Bank comes in your choice of black or white with both featuring a red ball topped joystick. The black bank plays Atari Breakout and the white bank plays Tetris. Each bank costs 3,850 yen or around $39.90 plus shipping from Japan.
