This Fantazia retro-style blow-mold Gorilla Money Bank is proudly made in the USA using the original mid-century molds. The Mighty Ape is made from medium weight black plastic and stands about 17 inches tall with a 1.5 x .2 inch slot that accepts all coins and bills.
‘Fantazia Marketing’ is the maker of the well-loved Giant Crayon banks, Giant Ice Cream banks, and many other iconic banks that have lined the shelves of variety and toy stores for decades. In classic fashion it has no plug, so it’s the perfect bank for encouraging kids to patiently save their dough, or it can be an imposing foe for action figures.
It’s also a lovely conversation piece for any hip, historic, mid-20th-century household. It can be a hat rack, an idol for those who worship the monkey god, or simply a token of intimidation to keep your dog or cat in line while you’re not home.
Appropriate for all ages, this gem is also cheap, available for under nine bucks at Amazon and Victory Buy. Also available for less money in a smaller 11″ size, for those of you with cramped quarters.
