Dear Mummy, I’ve recently gone bananas for a new collectible called Bananas™. They are perfect for a cheeky monkey like me. We saw these advertised on telly and at the London Toy Fair and I was lucky enough to get some for my birthday. The theme tune is pretty catchy and it’s a great idea for a collectible.
This is the perfect budget friendly toy from Bandai and you can collect one banana at a time (£3.99) or swing from the trees with a bunch of three (£9.99). They really have it all, the surprise element, the collectible characters and they are scented like real bananas!
There are six colours to choose from, including yellow, pink and blue! All the bananas are brightly coloured with a fantastic fresh banana scent. I couldn’t get enough of smelling them on my video!
You just peel to reveal the collectible cute Crushie character as well as lots of other special treats including two mini squeezable friends, gemstone stickers – the perfect addition to decorate your banana or Crushie, a collector sheet with character stickers and a hanging vine to display all of your Crushie friends.
There are a total of 24 ‘surprise’ Crushie friends to collect, including Rare and Ultra Rare Crushies. Grow your family by collecting members from all four banana trees. I was lucky enough to find one in a foil packet in Sainsbury’s recently and couldn’t believe my luck! It was a special edition one with a patterned banana skin!
These are great to hang off my gym backpack and a lot of kids at school have traded them as you can re-seal the bananas. I like linking them together and storing my new favourite collectibles. I love that you can hang the characters on their vines and display them, so they don’t get lost. The banana skin makes a great coin purse and a place to store nik naks.
Each Bananas Toy contains: 1 Crushie friend, 1 Crushie sticker, a collector’s sheet, 2 mini squeezable friends, a gemstone sticker sheet, and a vine. Bananas are available from Smyths, Entertainer, Toymaster, Sainsburys, Very & Littlewoods nationwide.
So what do you think of these cool bananas? They are really well priced as pocket-money toys (£3.99) and one of the cheapest collectibles on the market right now. Word on the grape-vine is that series 2 is on its way, so keep your eyes peeled *no pun intended*. So far the best birthday present I’ve had!
Go Bananas Go Go Bananas!
