At Doncaster Toy Fair today I saw yet another variation of one my favourite 'classic' toys, the Coffin Bank. It was called the Horror Monster as pictured.
This bank has a whole skeleton exposed so I assume that both hands grab the coin. But it wasn't this that intrigued me, it was the box art.
First up they have lifted the MONSTER lettering from the classic Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine as you can see here on issue 35:
The grave serpent on the box has been lifted too.
Scoop also told me something fascinating about Coffin Banks but I'll let him tell you himself. Anyone got a Coffin Bank readers?
