I was so happy to get this vintage Bubble Yum bank in the mail today! I found it on ebay last week and purchased it immediately. It was made in 1980 by The Idea Source. It is about nine inches tall and made of metal and cardboard. It looks like a giant pack of old school Bubble Yum and I can't wait to figure out where I will display it in my house!
Speaking of old school Bubble Yum... after finding the bank on ebay, I was looking for some other related items when I found this completed auction. $350 for a box of gum that is nearly thirty years old! Wowzer! It looks so cool and it totally nostalgic, but I could never keep it sealed like that. It sounds crazy (and gross), but I would have to try it :)
