Banana Collectibles Toys! Peelable, scented and so much fun!

These companies sure know how to market! Toys just keep on getting better and better!

Blue Whale has some really awesome toys, one of which are these surprise Banana toys. They come in a bunch of 3 or you can get just a single one as well.

I just love how they feel, super thick and durable. They smell like a banana too! They each come with 3 surprise blind bags. You get a figure (called a Crushie) in one, sticker gems and two tiny squishes on another and the last blind bag has the stand you can put the figure on. You can use the gems to decorate the banana, how fun! The banana is reuse able too! Use it to store your goodies in!

There are several to collect and there are commons, rares and even an ultra rare. We found a rare! It was a unicorn! Super cute..

They are supposed to be releasing two more “Bunches” soon, as this one is “Bunch” one. How cute is that? Right now they offer the bananas in 6 colors: blue, yellow, green, orange, pink and purple.

Oh the power of marketing..

Go Bananas for Bananas™!

The latest collectible craze to hit the market. Get them as singles or as beautiful colored bunches. Peel each scented banana to reveal unique Crushie characters inside. You’ll love decorating your Banana Crushie characters with gemstone stickers, or connecting your Crushies together on the vine! Not only do you get beautifully colored Banana bunches, you also get to collect all the unique Crushie characters and their mini squeezable friends!

Check out more about Banana Toys! They have printables and other fun things on their web page.

Price is about $10 for a bunch or about $3-$4 for a single. You can find these are Target, Walmart, Amazon and other retailers.

 

These would make stocking stuffers! I plan to buy a bunch and give a single one to my boys for Christmas in their stockings!

These might just be my new favorite blind bag toys!
