What is Bananagrams?
BANANAGRAMS®, named Toy Fair 2009’s “Game of the Year’,” is a fast and fun anagram game that drives players bananas! Requiring no pencil, paper or board, Bananagrams comes in a small portable banana shaped pouch and is perfect fun for kids from 7 – 97 years-old, at home or on the go. Created by a word game-obsessed family of three generations, Bananagrams is a labor of love that that has quickly become an international phenomenon. Bananagrams is available online as a Facebook Application and on the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad. Bananagrams recently launched in Spanish, French, Norwegian and German as well as in a larger version – DOUBLE Bananagrams, the big banana for the larger bunch (for 16+ players)!

My Thoughts
This game in simply fabulous. It is easy to carry around and fun to play. You can play alone or with others. No board like Scrabble (which I like by the way but don’t have the opportunity to play much…), and no pencil or paper is required. Simply bring you enthusiasm and play with the tiles to create words.

I find it is a good way to expand someone’s vocabulary as well. I played with my oldest son, who will soon nine years old, and showed that you can learn from the game of your adversary. We played in English and French. We had a blast while we spend some time creating words on the table.

I think Bananagrams is a must have for any homeschool families as it will challenge the kids to use their vocabulary words and spelling skills during a game. I highly recommend everyone to get a Bananagrams game.

This review was possible because I received a Bananagrams from PTPA Media for product testing.

The game can be purchase everywhere even at amazon.ca.
