Bananagrams Review and Giveaway - Perfect for the #Easter Basket

Do you love word games?  I do!  I was excited to learn about and play some of the Bananagrams games!  Even my 6 year old loves these games!   She loves making the words she learns at school. These are not only a fun games, but an educational tools for kids too! These award-winning Bananagrams’ family of games are  great educational in-door play and ideal games for on-the-go!  These would make a cute addition to an Easter Basket!

“The anagram game that will drive you bananas!”
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 (National Geographic Kids - A Family Goes Bananas and Creates Their Own Game!), Bananagrams is a labor of love that that has quickly become an international phenomenon. Bananagrams is available online as a free Facebook Application and on the iPad™, iPhone™ and iTouch™ as well as in a series of books. Bananagrams recently launched in Spanish, Hebrew, French, Italian, Norwegian and German as well as in a larger version – DOUBLE Bananagrams, the big banana for the larger bunch (for 16+ players)!  7+, great for intergenerational play for the whole family
“An apple a day for us all to play!”
Appletters is a strategic game of lettered tiles, packed in an apple pouch. Originally designed with younger players in mind, Appletters features three levels of play to amuse children and challenge adults. Players take turns building a “snake” of words that stretches across the table. New words are added to the first or last letter of the “snake”, and the first player to use all their tiles wins. It’s an addictive, intense, and exhilarating game, but the fun doesn’t end there. You can use the same tiles to play Applescore, with bonus points for big words, and Apple Turnover, where words can be replaced— but only with longer words. One game, three levels of play.  6+, 3 levels of play

“The twenty-second word race you can play anyplace!”
ZIP-IT is an exhilarating, high-speed, two-player game played with 24 lettered cubes and colored scoring zippers that come built into the pouch. Each player takes 12 cubes and races against their opponent to build a word grid. One hand can be played in as little as 20 seconds, and everything you need is in the bag! Playable on an airplane or train tray, ZIP-IT is the ultimate travel game. Each pouch includes a WEORDS dictionary of weird words that win word games!  7+, literally can play anywhere - a travel must-have!

Pairs In Pears
“Fresh fun comes in pears!”
PAIRSinPEARS, true to its name, is a fast-paced pair-making game, packed in a pear. Lettered tiles come in four distinct alphabet sets, and players race against each other to make connected pairs of words in matching patterns. It's a great way for children to develop memory and cognitive skills while learning the alphabet, pattern recognition, word construction, vowels, vocabulary, rhyming and more. Deceptively simple and exceptionally fun, PAIRSinPEARS is perfect for family time and classroom activities.  Great for 6+, great for little ones to develop memory and cognitive skills while learning the alphabet, pattern recognition, vowels, vocabulary, rhyming, etc.
