But some parents said the design of Aldi’s new toys would scare their kids.
Festive ad star Eebanana Scrooge was compared to Count Dracula on account of his fang-like teeth and bizarre cloak.
Rachael R Scott wrote on Facebook: “I think it’s the bananas mouth and outfit it looks a bit like count Dracula.
“A cute one mind. Nothing scary about it tho.”
Another added: “Love the first look but man that banana is creepy!
But not all thought Eebanana looked so frightening.
Charlie Roberts commented: “Imagine your year being ruined because a supermarket is selling a ‘scary banana’ in the toy range you’re too old to be buying.”
