Your Childhood Dreams Are About to Come True

“Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring banana phone
Ding dong ding dong ding dong ding donana phone”
Sound familiar? Then you, my friend, were lucky enough to grow up with legendary child entertainer Raffi. Some of my fondest memories include sitting in my car seat, sippin’ my apple juice and singing along to “Baby Beluga” and “Bananaphone” (of which the brilliant lyrics above are derived). If you are unfamiliar with the gem of a song, please take a moment to listen (you can thank me later).
Well, someone obviously was as influenced by “Bananaphone” as I, because he or she decided to create a bluetooth-enabled, mobile Banana Phone. The best part is that the company is donating a portion of all sales to Gearing up for Gorilla, an organization which focuses on the conservation of the rare mountain gorilla in Virunga National Park, located in eastern DR Congo, by providing funding and equipment to the rangers who protect them.
The Indiegogo campaign has currently raised over 10k and has about a month left, so come on, people – let’s make this childhood dream a reality!
