Has anyone got one? Any good? DS loves bananas, but I think he's going to grow up telling people that bananas are brown and mottled!

And what else shall I buy to make the P&P worthwhile?

Well, I love mine, but DP thinks it hysterical!!! MEN

Keeps Bananas perfect, and fits all sizes

I know I'm going to regret asking this but - wtf is a banana guard?

kalex Thu 12-May-05 18:18:18

Any buy the oven cleaner, I had a major spring clean this week and the oven, micro and BBQ grill are all spotless, with very very little effort, and i got the wholesome good housewife feeling

I did a lakeland shop today and saw the banana guard which looked huge to me. My bananas are never that big so I put it back.

Have a look at my thread for tips

But...but...but...what on earth are you people doing to your bananas for them to require their own guard?? Mine just sit in the fruit bowl, looking, well, unabashed hehehehehe

kalex Thu 12-May-05 18:22:33

Just wait til they want out of the house though, they will shout to you from the fruit bowl "we want out" and then you shall need a BG, to protect them from the Big Bad World

Aaaah, so it's for Extreme Sports Bananas, is it? I don't buy those.

Bananas in this house go out of the house fairly regularly - and end up squashed in a bag with their ends snapped off. I am a banana-neglecter.

I want one of these but just can't quite bring myself to buy one.

hunkermunker Thu 12-May-05 18:28:00

Why not, WWW? I admit, they look odd, but I'd rather odd than brown bananas!

WideWebWitch Thu 12-May-05 18:29:03

Can't justify spending the money hm, it's not an essential is it, really?

snafu Thu 12-May-05 18:29:51

I know it's lazy but can someone do me a link? If it's good enough for hunkermunker...

WideWebWitch Thu 12-May-05 18:30:30

here you are you lazy mare

hunkermunker Thu 12-May-05 18:30:50

Banana guard

hunkermunker Thu 12-May-05 18:31:11

I thought that might happen

WideWebWitch Thu 12-May-05 18:31:11

ha! Beat you!

WideWebWitch Thu 12-May-05 18:31:30

only 20 seconds in it, loser

hunkermunker Thu 12-May-05 18:31:41

I'm hoping it will make me go hiking on the fells

snafu Thu 12-May-05 18:32:11

Oh. My. God.

hunkermunker Thu 12-May-05 18:32:14

Who are you calling loser, hey? I'm the one about to have unblemished bananas!

hunkermunker Thu 12-May-05 18:32:33

Snaf, you want one. You know you do

snafu Thu 12-May-05 18:34:28

pmsl, can't stop snorting. It really is most unattractive.

OK, I really do want one. Or maybe even two. Can you buy them even if you don't go fell-walking? Or do you have to prove ownership of a rucksack?
