Why Bananas?

Our name was chosen by the founding mothers for three reasons:

  • their children were eating lots of bananas
  • they sometimes felt that they were “going bananas” with the 24/7 challenges of parenthood
  • they wanted a name that was non-bureaucratic, child-friendly and memorable

The name was originally “BANANAS, A Place to Find Playmates”…but we changed it after we received too many inappropriate phone calls from adults.  Thank goodness this happened before the internet – just imagine what we might have found in our inbox!
