Crochet Banana Pretend Play Food, Preschool Learning Toy

Yummy banana with an outer peel that can really be.... peeled! The yellow peel can be closed, or "peeled" and the banana removed for realistic play.

Two peel sections have loops which can be pulled over the green stem on the third section -- this closes the peel. (See second photo) Easy for little hands -- my young toy tester tried it out!
(Children age 3 and over should be able to easily close the peel.)

The stem and loops are securely crocheted into the peel providing safe play for all ages!

What a fun addition to your child's play kitchen, grocery store or farmer's market!

Banana ~
• Made of 100% cotton yarn*
• Banana stuffed with hypo-allergenic polyester fiberfill
• May be gently hand washed, reshaped and air dried
• Banana measures 6 inches long
• Peel measures about 8 inches long when fastened (not including stem)

* I like to use cotton yarn for my play food because it has a smooth finish -- no fuzzies! -- and is easy to wash. I also crochet with a small hook to make a firm fabric that will keep that fiberfill inside where it's supposed to be!

Add a cute muslin storage bag with two banana slices on the front! The storage bag can be used to "go shopping" -- and it's a great way to make cleanup fun! Perfect also if you're giving the banana as a gift! (See last photo.)

• 100% cotton bag with draw cord
• Two cute banana slices securely sewn on the front
• Bag measures approximately 5 x 8 inches

• At checkout you will be asked whether you prefer the banana with bag, or just the banana. The bag adds $2.00 to the price but no extra shipping!


♥ Please be sure to read the following safety information, and always supervise your children at play ♥

*** SAFETY ***

No small parts... good for all ages. Recommended for children 3 years old and older who no longer put things in their mouths.


♥ This banana would be adorable in a photo of your little one dressed in a monkey suit!

Frequently asked questions about MagnoliaSurprise

• Toys -- Spot clean or gently hand wash, roll in towel to absorb excess water, and air dry. Some reshaping may be needed.
• Coasters, pot holders -- gently hand wash and dry flat.
All of my toys are made with your child's safety in mind. This is my utmost priority -- I double sew attached parts (arms, legs etc) so that they are securely sewn on. Safety information is included on each toy listing as well as on a hang tag on the toy itself.

Most of my toys are intended for children 3 years old and older who no longer put things in their mouths, though some are good for all ages with no small parts. I do use plastic safety eyes which are considered "small parts" and therefore intended for ages 3 and older. Plastic safety eyes are securely fastened and locked into place. If you would prefer embroidered eyes on an animal, please let me know -- I would be happy to make a special order for you.
I will be glad to make something special for you! If you are wanting different colors or more than one, or perhaps an animal that is not listed, just let me know and I'll see what I can do! Just click the "Ask a Question" button and I'll answer ASAP!
