Mechanical banks that grab the coin

Here's a modern, Japanese version of an older mechanical bank theme. This one features an cartoon cat. Put the coin in kitty's food bowl and it'll pop out of the box to steal it, then meows to thank you.

Here's where you can learn more about the Mechanical Kitty Coin Bank

This is the older version that I remember:
Mechanical bank with hand that grabs coin
Here is where you can get the creepier classic bank featuring a human hand that grabs the coin.

A nice topic. See also this collection of mechbanks (chapter "mechanische Spardosen"):

with animated pictures. A very outstanding example this wooden little house, which explodes
through input of a coin, because this coin falls on a hidden mousetrap !
And my older entry:
