We're Going Bananas!

Hey all you word fanatics -- we've got a new game in the store: Bananagrams! Designed for ages 7 to 97, the game Bananagrams grew from a passionate love of word games. Obsessed by all the word games that could be found, the creators of this game hankered after something a bit more fluid than the classics they all love and wanted a game that the family could play together – ALL ages at the same time. They wanted something portable, that they could take on their travels and something simple enough (with no superfluous pieces or packaging) that they could play in restaurants while waiting for the food to arrive.

The game involves yelling words such as "split," "peel," "dump," and, of course, "bananas!" One hand can be played in as little as five minutes, but it’s so addictive it’s often hard to put away. The name came from the saying “The anagram game that will drive you bananas!” – hence BANANAGRAMS.

Bananagrams even has its own Facebook page! (yikes, what a world we live in). There are variations to the primary game, such as Banana Smoothies and Banana Cafe, and of course someone has already developed a drinking game based on it. Only $15 for hours of pleasure in an adorable little bag.

If games are your gig, don't forget we also have Word Teasers, jigsaw puzzles (cleverly designed to look like books), and magnetic travel games.
