The Piggy Break

The Piggy Break is Googa's interpretation for a modern piggy bank.

It all started when our nephew broke BY ACCIDENT his ceramic piggy bank and he was rather upset about it. So we came up with a piggy bank that can keep the treasure safe from harm's way, will not be as fragile and hold its content until that special day.

The piggy is made from a laser-cut sheet of stainless steel, bent by hand, to shape. Its ears and under belly are coated with rubber to give it a nice feel.  Being made out of stainless steel, it will last forever.

Give it to someone you love so he can treasure it forever or treat yourself to one bank that will not bankrupt.

 How To Open The Piggy Break

Like all ceramic piggy banks, this stainless steel one is also a onetime thing – this is what makes it valuable. To open the Piggy Break, you need to twist its ears until they break, two turns will do the trick. After you break its two ears you can open its top, like on a takeout box, and get your treasure.

Now remember – don't try to open it until you are ready

Why Kickstarter

For us to be able to make the Piggy Break, we need to order a bunch of them to be laser cut in one go and we also need to rubber coat a bunch of them altogether so we will not waste a lot of rubber.

We hope that you gals and guys will help us get started and buy a few.
