A Great Gadget – The Apple Slinky

imageimageimageimageFor those of you who have not yet crossed paths with this handy gadget we call it an “apple slinky” in our house. It is otherwise known as an apple peeler. Our first experience with the “apple slinky” was when our eldest son Blake started preschool. He came home telling me about this “apple slinky” the teacher uses that peels apples and makes them look a bit like a snake. The next meeting with the “apple slinky” was when my mother-in-law produced one at her house one evening. As it turns out they seem to be a growing breed because when Blake started big school his teacher had one in her classroom too. So just recently we purchased our own “apple slinky” and we love it, especially our 2 year old daughter Alani – it has certainly helped her become a little more enthusiastic about eating apples!!!
So just in case you have not met with the “apple slinky” as yet I thought I would share this clever little gadget. It is not overly expensive to purchase I payed $19.95 at our local kitchen shop “Mallam House” in Murwillumbah.
The pictures displayed are from Thursday this week when Alani requested an “apple slinky”.
By the way the “apple slinky” peels, cores and slices.

  1. We use our apple slinky all the time. At one stage it was the only way some children in day care would eat fruit. It encourages their self help skills as well. Love it.
