Topo Gigio Coin Bank
This collectible item is a vintage coin savings bank featuring the beloved mouse puppet, Topo Gigio. He is wearing a white shirt and denim pants and is made of thick soft-plastic.
Additionally, the coin deposit slot is located on his back under his shirt (also fits paper money). For easy access to the money, his head lifts completely off. Furthermore, this item is in excellent condition.
Topo Gigio is described as being a soft foam mouse with dreamy eyes and a friendly, childish personality. He made his debut in 1959 on a children’s Italian television puppet show which was well-received.
Shortly thereafter, he appeared in magazines, on merchandising, and was a recurring guest on the Ed Sullivan Show. In 1965, he starred in his own international film, “The Magic World of Topo Gigio”.
To this day, Topo Gigio is considered an Italian pop culture icon. This collectible Topo Gigio Coin Bank makes a terrific gift because it’s bound to put a smile on anyone’s face.
