Bandai's 'Bananas' toy range is launching for the holiday season this year and it promises to capture the hearts of kids with food-themed collectibles that contain a surprise inside.

While there are some popular surprise-inside toys that require kids to crack open eggs or spheres, the scented skin on the Bananas must be peeled to reveal a bunch of toys to play with—like a "Crushie" character, two small squeezable friends, decorative stickers, a collector sheet and a vine to display groups of the collected character toys.

The Bananas can be easily attached to a backpack and resealed for trading with friends. In all, there are 24 Crushie friends to collect from Bandai's Bananas, which includes Rare and Ultra Rare Crushies.
