So much wrong with this nasty rabbit weirdness John Lewis, WTF?!?

It's sexualised because you have sexualised it, OP. I don't look at a money slot and think 'FANNY' nor do I associate my fanny as being a place to shove coins.

Next you'll be telling me that piggy banks are revolting and encourage children to mutilate real life pigs by cutting a slot in their backs to shove their 2ps in.

Rorschach blot much op? Maybe there's something you'd like to explore?

This is up there with the weirdest MN threads ever. It looks like a bunny doing yoga. How on Earth is this degrading women? You’re crackers.

I wouldn’t waste my money on shit like that. But I think you’ve got a seriously weird thought process about it OP

The placement could be better but it’s a rabbit, I think your sexualising and degrading comments are a reach. Doesn’t look to me like the arms are bound to me.

I'd say it's a bit ill thought through rather than 'astoundingly crass and revolting'.

really don't think it's aimed at children - it's just a silly gift is all nothing to get all het up about. You make it sound like actual porn or something but it's just a bit daft imo. It's not yuck it's just 'meh'

I think you're crackers

The rabbit is doing a shoulder stand (it's arms aren't bound)

And you're posting the money in its arse/bottom/crack

It's barely eyebrow raising hmmconfusedand I can be really prudish

But weird. Not sure how it degrades women though?

Hmm, well looking at piggy bank for new baby in the family (JLewis is my go to for lovely baby gifts), and found this when I searched for money box. An upside down "playful" rabbit with bound looking arms designed so that pennies are posted into the slot between it's legs. It is astoundingly crass and revolting.

How to take an innocent trinket and turn it unmentionable, what were the buyers thinking? Hey look we can do the degrade women and sexualise children message all at the same time, all in the guise of "playful", cos if you don't laugh you are just too boring anyway. It's like they forgot about target markets all together.

This is a money box, but not one I would ever give as a gift and if I ever received one of these I wouldn't be inviting that gift giver back!

I am feeling a little shock at my usual failsafe JLewis right now!

I don't think IABU to think yuck, AIBU?
