The Lion King - Mufasa and Simba coin bank by PAX

This Lion King bank is of Simba climbing on Mufasa's head. It was made by Pax of Concord, Ontario, Canada. These were sold at around the time of the original release of the movie. I have seen these for sale in both Canada and Europe. I am not sure if the European versions say they are made by a different company.

It is 6" tall, 6" wide and 5" deep and is made out of vinyl. I like the way this bank looks however my complaint about this bank is the stopper in the bottom is rather difficult to take out. Usually a knife or a screwdriver is required to pry it out. I guess it is one way of enforcing savings :) If you don't have a knife or a screwdriver at hand, stomping on it or hitting it with a hammer works, just like with a ceramic one but with less mess, See image. Although I would recommend the knife or screwdriver method over this.

Thank you :)

I always thought the talking Mufasa and Simba bank that Thinkway did was neat. They are hard to find with the cardboard treetop still intact though. One thing that is kind of interesting is Thinkway actually re-made the talking Mufasa and Simba bank for Simba's Pride. However for Simba's pride the characters on the bank were supposed to be Adult Simba and Kiara. I thought Thinkway was pretty lazy though. They just recolored the cub Simba to be Kiara and never changed Mufasa at all. So it looks like a Mufasa and Kiara bank. I will have to upload images of both when I have a chance.

Really? Wow, that IS rather lazy of them... I hate it when companies do that! It would still be awesome to see it though! I look forward to your upload!
Unfortunately the treetop on mine is not in tact :( You can still put money in it, but it just looks like a trunk. I still love it all the same though. It is cute.
