At Inhabitat, we’re big fans of educational toys that masquerade as cute animals, and the piggy bank [1] is one of the best examples of learning disguised as fun trick if we’ve ever seen one. But there is something about smashing a porcelain piggy bank to bits to get the money out that leaves us with a bad taste in our mouth, and we’re guessing designer Kiri Martin felt the same. That’s why we’re loving Bergdorf, Martin’s clever version of the piggy bank made of paper pulp [1], which can be ripped apart guiltlessly when enough money has been accumulated and then simply recycled.
