#316 Frog Purse

Trust the Pinoy to combine the unusual with the practical and you have the Frog Purse, a rather hideous looking coin purse that one sees hanging in many souvenir and tourist shops across the Philippines.

Obviously makers of this unusual purse have a taste for uncommon materials, making good use of frog skin and anatomy to create a memorable purse.  

Whatever the arguments for or against this object, the purse actually serves a very practical function and is a funny piece of accessory to startle or surprise the squeamish among us. Indeed, let your money do the croaking….

Long live Pinoy resourcefulness!
