Lame Toys with Alex, Part 5: Mystery Box!

Here’s a puzzle from another land. I received this from my sister during Hanukkah and didn’t have a clue as to what it might be due to the fact that the package was completely transparent and all the text was in Japanese. Clearly this was a challenge, one I intended to accept.

So I put in the batteries and pressed the button. Aha! So it’s one of those mechanical coin bank gizmos. I’m not sure what cats have to do with grapes but as long as it keeps my money safe, it’s welcome to them.

Now you’re probably thinking, “Oh gee-wow, a bank. Where’s the good stuff?” Well sometimes lame can have function as well as form. You know, like ugly Christmas sweaters.
