Finally I have it. I was searching for the banana for years. Some might call it crazy to go on the hunt for a plush toy, but somehow I got into it and couldn’t stop until I got it. And now the Andy Warhol Banana Plush by Medicom is laying on a Hardoy Butterfly Chair in my living room.
I wrote about the banana before here:
“The banana pillow of Andy Warhol. I saw it at kid robot when I was in New York City in 2005 and I always wanted to buy it. And when I decided to buy it, it was sold out. The banana is really cool. It is not only one of the most famous symbols of Pop Art, but also on the cover of Velvet Underground & Nico. I listened to Velvet Underground/Lou Reed a lot while I was in New York. The perfect music for the city.”
About a year ago I wrote this tumblr post and asked for help. But nobody could help me. I asked the team of Toykio but nobody could help there either. But trough an online art auction house I was able to find it. I was the only bidder, so here it is. And I am happy.
