I’ve never been very good at saving, but I am sure that with a pretty “piggy” bank like this one, I would become better at it. It’s called Dos Pavos (two turkeys, literally), a name which refers to the old slang used for two five Peseta coins from days when the Peseta was still jingling in our pockets, here in Spain.
Based on the traditional Spanish ceramic piggy bank, it has been created by design studio Mr. Simon from Valencia, and made from natural beech and glazed, white ceramic. Intended for saving 2€ coins, it shows how much money you have saved (approximately) at any given time thanks to its clever “construction”.
At present, Dos Pavos is actually just a project, but with your help, by reserving one (or more) of these lovely “piggy” banks via this site, it may just become a reality! C’mon! How pretty is it? So stylish in any home! Such a good idea as a birthday present or Christmas gift (what, you haven’t started shopping yet?!)…
I think it would be great if the Mr. Simon‘s Dos Pavos were produced. So what do you think? Need one? Want one? Reserve one?
