Improve Vocabulary with Bananagrams

Bananagrams is a funny word game wherein lettered tiles are used to spell words. The name is derived from the founding family's claim that it's the "anagram game that will drive you bananas!" Beginning as a family innovation, Banangrams was made available to the public at the London Toy Fair. The game is similar to the older Scrabble variant Take Two. The object of the game is to arrange one's tiles faster than opponents and be the first to cause the pool of unused tiles to be exhausted. The tiles come in a fabric, banana-shaped package.




Bananagrams is listed as a must-have and one of the top ten best travel games and it has been listed as a best-seller among toy and gift retailers as well. Bananagrams uses elements of both Boggle and Scrabble. It is similar to Boggle in the sense that game play is simultaneous, yet players build interlocking puzzles similar to those in Scrabble. Some people use Scrabble tiles in lieu of purchasing Bananagrams. Because Bananagrams can be played by players at any reading level, the game is useful for children who are learning to spell, and has been touted as both educational and popular among consumers.

An independent psychologist reviewed Bananagrams and expressed her recommendation of Bananagrams as a positive example of creativity stimulation because, perhaps unlike Scrabble, the goal is to play all of one's tiles, which generates a need to configure and reconfigure one's word grid to accept all of the letters. It is a great for family fun as well as being educational. Bananagrams portability makes it perfect for travel. Just grab the pouch and go. Buy a Bananagrams now.
