Parrots are popular pets in Japan. To satisfy the love for parrots and Japanese people’s affection to weird things, toy company Epoch has released a series of capsule toys called Banana to Inko. (Inko means parrots in Japanese.) They are banana parrots.

Banana parrots come in six types: 1) normal banana parrot, 2) chocolate banana parrot, 3) banana cockatiel yellow, 4) banana cockatiel gray, 5) banana cockatoo, 6) banana chick.
As you can see, not all of them are actually parrots, and I have no idea why they are in banana peels, but as long as they are cute, it doesn’t matter!

There are also another weird variety called Kinoko to Inko. This one is a combination of parrots and mushrooms. Again, no idea why this is happening to these innocent creatures.
