Can anyone find me a "safe" in the shape of a pineapple?

Yes, it's a bizarre request.

On an episode of Sam and Cat on Nickleodeon, they hid their money in the fruit bowl inside a fake pineapple that unscrewed. You know, like the fake baked bean cans. DS (14) declared that he would love one.

I can find plastic pineapples, I can find pineapple boxes, I can not find one that both looks like a pineapple and is a box. I can find pineapple trinket boxes, I can find pineapple ice buckets but no pineapple safes.

I do already have a kitsch lime green pineapple box I bought him before he requested this seemingly non existent one but I would love to find one.

I suspect it was made for the programme or only available in the U.S. but it's always worth asking MN grin

at a guess I'd say this is what you're after - but it's US website and out of stock, but it exists grin

from the US or white then paint

Thank you for your efforts - Close but no, um... Banana.

It was realistically fake and the top unscrewed. I suspect that, as Google is throwing up nothing similar, it doesn't exist.

I'd buy him the white one and get him a paint set too!

Looking at dicky's link someone's already tried to search for this exactly thing and come up with the same link as cucumber and it does look like a cookie jar in the pic.
This might be an ice bucket, but it will have the compartment inside for him to store things

Was going to suggest the ice bucket that Naught has already found. My gran had one 30 odd years ago. The lid stays on tight.

I do love the way MNers rise to a challenge smile

I think the ice bucket is my fallback option" - one of the replicas, not eh £60 original ones shock I love him, but not £60 of plastic pineapple's worth!

Thanks everyone.

Can you convince him that all pineapples are tinned


NaughtToThreeSadOnions Fri 27-Nov-15 15:54:49

That's why I linked the £24 one because the price of some of them shock I was like £50-60 for something fun.

LOL @ the tinned version.

I might get that as a joke although I do think it's the shape of the pineapple he is fond of. I have no idea why!

I love him, but not £60 of plastic pineapple's worth!
