A while back an old Japanese friend who also has a babe about the same age as J came to visit. At lunch time she pulled out a banana case. At first I thought the concept of a banana case was silly but now I'm a complete convert and of course we have one and use it ALL the time. I mean how many times have you found a black squished up old banana at the bottom of your bag. It's a pretty big boom in Japan right now due to the fad banana diet that I blogged about last month!! Of course we got the yellow one and they are advertised with the guarantee that 90% of bananas will fit inside the case - so far all of ours have fit.
