Infinite banana in development to solve Japanese banana shortage

by Nana Kudamono on October 16, 2008

So are you guys familiar with all the “infinite” or “endless” Japanese toys? Toymaker Bandai has released toys that let you repeatedly pop edamame (green soybean) beans from their shell, pop virtual bubble wrap packaging sheets, and rip open cardboard packages of the type used for cookies and the like.

A competing toymaker, Epoch, has announced for December release a banana toy, the Mekurumeku Otona no Banana, that allows you to repeatedly peal an infinite mini-banana. Sound effects were recorded by a voice actress. The toy fruit will come in four colors, and the “riper” model’s sound effects may be slightly R rated. Below is a preproduction prototype photograph and a product information sheet for retailers. The actual product may differ.
