The Life Clock (Takaratomy Jinsei Tokei) and the Bank of Life (Takaratomy Jinsei Ginkou) are truly bizarre Japanese takes on everyday objects.
The Life Clock is a normal functioning alarm clock, except the tiny human that “lives” on it’s LCD screen. He follows your life along with you- waking up, working, eating, dating, surfing the ‘net for porn, shopping. You get your choice of three characters- worker, rock star, or teenage girl, which develops like a Tamagotchi as your live your life.
The Bank of Life is a regular piggy bank except for the little man living in it’s screen. He starts off poor in a tiny apartment with flies but the more coins you feed the bank, the better his life becomes. He can go on dates, get new clothes, bigger apartments and live a life that’s frankly better off than your own penny pinching existence.
