I agree….........a very cool Christmas present.
Dropping money into a dark abyss piggy isn’t nearly as rewarding as watching it pile up in the belly of this visible piggy. I’m sure kids will enjoy this much more.
Are there plans for this somewhere?
Well done and thanks for the idea.

Very teasing project. You can watch, but can not reach. I like the idea and colour.
