Bananagrams Review and Giveaway

A great way to get the kids unplugged is by getting the family together and having a game night. I have a lot of board games I love to play. I would say I love brain teasers the best for sure! My husband is pretty good at spelling, word type games so it can sometimes be unfair but I still love playing games with him.

I would like to introduce you to a great game for ALL ages,



Bananagrams is a exciting and fun word/anagram game. It reminds me of a scrabble type of game. This is an anagram game that will drive you bananas! The players race against each other to make a crossword grid and use all their letter tiles first. This game can be played alone or with many people playing along side each other.  It can also be played while waiting at a restaurant or anywhere that you can use a table top. A great game to get the kids thinking about words and not about what they are waiting for.
Workman Publishing publishes the Bananagrams books for on the go or just fun on paper. They also offer Calendars for more anagram fun! 

The recommended age for Bananagrams is 7-97 years old. This is a great game for anyone who likes word teasers, crosswords or spelling. Our friends at Thomas Allen & Son has sent us our vary own Bananagrams and a Bananagrams workbook.

I have "played" Bananagrams with my children, instead our game is all about making words together and learning how to spell. They are almost 4 and 5 years old. I have played Bananagrams a few times myself and I plan to challenge my husband to play with me soon enough. I can see this being a game that my children will love to play over and over again as they age.They already love just pulling out the tiles and spelling simple words they know.

Buy it: You can buy the Bananagrams for Kids book on Chapters or Amazon. You can also pick up the Bananagrams game on Bananagrams.com.

Win: Thomas Allen & Son would like to offer Ten (10) lucky Canadian Coupon Mom readers their very own Bananagrams set. This set includes the Bananagrams Game in a banana pouch with 144 letter tiles, and also a Bananagrams for Kids book!
