NEW Super Mario Bros. Wii Sound Bank ニュースーパーマリオブラザーズWiiサウンドバンク

These are kinda neat, if not all gimmick. First, the banks are super small and only hold a few coins. Second, the box makes a point of stating that only up to 100yen coins fit inside - specifically 500yen coins don't fit. Anyway, when you insert a coin, a little lever in the slot is pressed and a noise from the game is made. It lists a specific sound in a little icon by each block's picture, and while each one does produce one sound unique to it, each makes some of the same sounds, it's strange, but cool. My only real gripe is that the images aren't printed on the blocks, they're stickers affixed to the front, which makes them look a little cheap. Overall, though, they're neat little conversation pieces.
