The supermarket giant Aldi has been criticized by parents for the design of one of its Christmas soft toys from the Kevin la Carotte range.
This year, buyers can get their hands on Kevin and his family, as well as Ebanana Scrooge and Marcus Radishford.
The toys are expected to go on sale on November 25 in Aldi stores, Manchester Evening News reports.
Posting to an online Aldi fan group, one buyer shared a photo of the toy collection, writing: First look at some of Kevin’s toys for 2021 …. ”
However, customers were quickly distracted after spotting a “disturbing” detail in the photo.
Writing below the post, one person slammed: “When I saw Aldi’s first ad I was super excited for the cute little banana !!!!! Thinking yes he’s so cute I have need him !
“But now, looking at this. I am very disappointed, the banana looks scary and massive and Marcus looks like a tomato. The only one I like is bearded Kevin! “
Someone else wrote: “Love the first look, but man this banana is scary!”
“This banana is scary !!” said a third.
A fourth commented: “Why does Ebanana look like Count Drac? Hahaha.
However, not everyone hated bananas so much.
“I hate them and I hate big plush toys BUT I love this banana,” one buyer said.
Another fan commented, “I want the banana. Did you manage to get some urz.”
Aldi has been contacted for comment.
