Based on the economy, we all need something economy-friendly to hold our money. But is the music really necessary?

By the way, I will try this one soon. I finished off some cinnamons and have nothing to do on Saturday nights.

this is brilliant, I think I have a few of these lying around because my grandma loves to get them for me and I know they are worth saving, but for what!?

this was a totally awesome idea! i was on vacation a while ago and some kids stole 50 bucks out of my unattended wallet while i was in another room, if i had this theyd probably be like AHHH and drop in and run away!!! oh well! instead i put it in my duct tape wallet!

I saw this in Popular Science...actually I think they did a better job of describing it. Nonetheless I think it's a nifty idea. I'll add it to my collection of other nifty ideas to try out sometime.

Hahah, as a kid I wanted something like this but I always wanted a big alarm and flashing lights to catch my brother in my room.

I had that idea, but my voice box was one from a BMX kids toy and said things like HUGE AIR! AWESOME! GO BIG OR GO HOME! That would sure scare off crooks! Lol great idea.
