About

We are proud to present you the most American piggy bank ever created:

 

Comedy was always our thing. That's why, as always, in these turbulent times, we thought bringing some light and laughter to the table was much needed.

The BigglyBank is a piggy bank, in which you can store your savings.

What makes it tremendous is its recognizable design and its functionality.

Each time you put a coin in the BigglyBank it will produce, at random, one out of 10 amusing voice effects, that will remind you of someone very important and famous! It will lighten up your day and keep your change safe!

We have decided to commemorate this most important period of American history!

How did the BigglyBank come to be? Well my friend Josh and I were sitting around his fireplace over Christmas break one night discussing our next project we wanted to put out into the world. 

Then it hit us! We wanted a fun, cool, entertaining product that people would enjoy. Something that everyone could instantly connect to. We wanted to create the gag gift of all gag gifts!

That’s why we are so passionate about the BigglyBank! From an idea out of thin air by two buddies, to commissioning one of Hollywood’s top special effects artists to bring this masterpiece to life. A combination of art, fun, and most importantly - savings!

From mold to life - our prototype journey
From mold to life - our prototype journey

I came across one special effects artist willing to make such a crazy dream become reality. After several drafts and ideas, we came up with what you see now.  

At first we thought about putting the coin hole in the top of the head like every other piggy bank but then we remembered BigglyBank isn’t like any other bank in the world. So we decided to put our money where our mouth is and literally push the boundaries of the piggy bank design!

Through many prototypes and 3-D printed designs for the coin mechanism, we were able to get a working prototype!

 You can check our time-lapse video here:

What’s it made of?  

  • A light weight resin made from Roto-casting, a Smooth-Cast 57D from Smooth-On. It is a very durable material, yet very light weight. 
  • The coin mechanism operates with a coin switch behind the mouth that detects coins once they enter triggering 1 of 10 different voice activated sayings that are guaranteed to make you LOL.

 

 

We are making sure that by pledging you will be one of the first owners of the BigglyBank! You can even have your own one-of-a-kind BigglyBank with customized voice sayings, ones you will choose and send to us!

  • We have a top notch broker who has worked for decades creating, developing, and mass producing gag gifts. Our team is standing by once our goal is met to place the first order. They will handle all shipping and delivery requirements in a timely fashion.  
  • Once our goal of $15,000 is met, we will place the first order based on priority and make sure that our manufacturing standards are being held to the highest authority. Once funds exceed the original budget they will go to placing the next orders and to getting the BigglyBank into mass production.

   

As soon as our goal is met with your generous donations, we have a professional sourcing company who has handled tons of high profile projects and assures us it will be no problem getting BigglyBanks made. They have an experienced team that will make sure the BigglyBank is up to standards, works every time you put a coin in, and is shipped to you in a timely manner. 

We want you to have BigglyBank as soon as possible so here is our Timeline

  • April: Make lots of new friends/supporters in our campaign. Secure Manufacturer in China to handle mold and electronics to mass produce the BigglyBank. 
  • May: The mold will be made in China. It takes a month to get it ordered and 3-D printed. Once that is made, they can start manufacturing the BigglyBank. So exciting! 
  • June/July: If all goes well, we intend to start shipping the BigglyBank to your doorstep!

How we plan Fulfillment:  

  • We have a broker we have hired in China who has decades of experience manufacturing voice activated gag gifts and delivering on time from China. 
  • We have already sent the prototype over to the factory to be scanned by a 3-D printer that will replicate the mold and be ready to go straight into production as soon as our Kickstarter goal is met and then surpassed bringing the joy of BigglyBank to the people.
  • We partnered specifically with this broker so we could guarantee you on time shipping and safe handling of your BigglyBank. 

 Let's Make Change Great Again!

Risks and challenges

We all know there will be risks involved but I am very confident in my team I have assembled that I will be able to bring this to market within a few months of hitting our goal.

MANUFACTURING: Since we have secured our manufacturer, we believe it will happen pretty quickly. There can be snags with molding but based on this product being fairly easy to make without a ton of moving parts, I am confident it will only take a month or two at most.

FULFILLMENT: As stated, the whole process should take around 2 and half months since we have saved you the trouble of us having to further test the product. The prototype works perfectly and is ready to go! Our team of experts will ensure a clear road ahead from our suppliers and factories.

We will be working with manufacturers who have been making products like this for many years in Huuuge quantities. Like anything, there may be some speed bumps but our persistence to get this amazing bank to market won’t let us fail. After all we must think Biggly!

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Please Help us make BigglyBank a reality by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.

Thank you in advance, and let’s Make Change Great Again!
