What a cool little contraption! I need this!

Anita said...

I saw someone with one of those yesterday and I couldn't believe what a great idea it was!

Are they going to come out with a line for all the fruits? ;-)

Ginny Cook said...

We have one too! Got it in Little Tokyo at the 98 cent store. It's my new favorite thing to give to kids (and parents) as an inexpensive gift! Would be awesome as a kid's party favor...

we were ruining our diaper bag with squished bananas; it's like the best thing ever, even though it's so random! :)

OMG, I need one of those! I always throw bananas in my purse for a snack and they end up smooshed!

Linda Lu said...

Oh my goodness! I was looking at one these earlier. I really need one of those.

My mum bought me one of these after I ruined all my school books (and my geography coursework!) a few too many times, life saver!

Ana said...

It's really common in Sweden, I got one from my boyfriend ( I'm French) and I've been calling it my banana holder :)

Anna said...

They have a banana bunker at the MOMA design store in SoHo. I have one and they actually are accordian so it moves with the shape of the banana. Oh, best believe my friends and I all bought one when we last went to New York. And took pictures with them in Times Square (dorky, I know).

In UK, you can get these at Wilkinson lol... just saw them the other day. Utterly fascinating!!

I saw this in Japan at the 100 yen store.. for 100 yen! ($1) Completely hilarious but oddly useful!

Michelle said...

I could have used one of these today. By the time I got to work the banana that I had tossed into my bag had turned into mush.

Brigette Olmos-Arreola said...

wow, it's sad how in love with that i am. gotta have one!

Joanna Goddard said...

omg, i want to check out moma! :)

You know you're a parent (and getting old!) when you watch Dazed and Confused for the first time ever a couple of nights ago on Netflix and end up in a heated discussion with your partner over what an appropriate curfew is for a high school freshman (even though your kids are all under the age of 8) :)

ps
I've had the banana bunker for years- love it, but it totally looks like a dildo when there's no banana in it.

Jennifer said...

Not just parents! They were a big thing for a bit at my sister's school (she's 16).

Catherine Masi said...

Add this to the, "F%#!$, why didn't I think of this?!!" list. I'd say it's pretty genius- or if not, just damn practical.

...or when youre more excited over your new vacuum cleaner than your new pair of riding boots you just bought for the fall...

Hah! Just a week ago, I thought to myself that I needed something like this and I knew some mom had probably already invented it. Almost googled it, but got distracted. Thanks for the tip!

rubi said...

oh my goodness, this is so genius. i've needed this my whole life!

Allison said...

hahaa this is fantastic. just the other day my boyfriend went to grab my keys out of my bag and said 'WHY is there a banana in your purse?'. um, cause i might get hungry, duh. and i'm not even a parent! ;)

hello, Friday said...

lol. awesome! xoxo

Oh my gosh, our first baby will not be here until December but I totally want one for myself :)

LRH said...

I just bought a Wonder Bread Sandwich Saver. And I'm not a mom yet. I love this kind of stuff!

Alex said...

AWESOME! I have to get this.

Diana said...

I really need this. I always take bananas to uni with me, but they always get smashed and bruised from all the books I carry around. I often end up throwing them away. What an ingeniously simple concept!

Daniela said...

That is amazing. My banana's get mooshy before I get a chance to eat them, and I like them better when they aren't soft!!

Jantine Benschop said...

so funny this post! i just bought one for my girl (8 years) who never wanted a banana to school (she is more an apple-girl)... and finally i bought her the banana saver.. just in time before she is to old and embarassed by it!

A said...

It's great, although NOT new. I've seen this in lots of stores in Sweden for about ten years. And yes, it works! :D

plumsong said...

gah! i just got one of these as a gift. truly awesome.

wildchild said...

woah, what a good idea!

Anonymous said...

You reminded me that I wanted this! I hate bruised bananas!

It's the little things. Although, I think the saying is, "You know you're a parent when you talk about your child's bowel movments in casual conversation." No?

holly said...

Wow. That's pretty amazing. I just glanced over at my counter with a bruised ended half baby eaten banana and thought...holy crap my kitchen is a mess!!! haha
