Ratatouille: Remy & Emile Figurine Coin Bank (Disney Store)

Bon Appétit! This adorable Ratatouille inspired coin bank (featuring brothers Remy and Emile sharing some tasty cheese) was available exclusively at the Disney Store in 2007—right around the time the film hit theaters (wow, I still can't believe it was 10 years ago). The sculpted material is some sort of PVC plastic (non-fragile) and measures about 7 1/2" tall x 6" wide. Original retail back in the day was $12.50.

On the back of Emile's head is the slot to insert your coins. On the bottom, a removable plastic stopper is included. I love the the stylized designs of these characters which, from what I remember, found their way onto other merch as well.

Note: Thanks to the Pixar Planet forums, I found an old picture of this on Disney Store shelves from way back when. Check it out HERE.

Whether for your kitchen, kid's room or for your office bookshelf or desk, this is a perfect display piece for fans of the film such as myself. There isn't very much out there in terms of Ratatouille merchandise (even to this day—I totally wish it would get more love), so this is a real standout.

You can find this bank on eBay if you're interested in adding it to your collection. There are a few listings on there right now (click HERE to check them out), but be sure to find one that is the least scuffed up (many of them have all sorts of marks). I ended up winning the one I have here for $17 and I'd say it's pretty pristine.
