I first learned of Bananagrams last year, I remembered thinking about how neat it would be to use the game with part of our schooling. With being a home schooling family, we love neat fun things to make learning fun instead of so blah. So we purchased it for our daughter and we would not only use it as the game, but we would also use it to practice her spelling words.
Gillian would often get the game and sit down, and make different words without being told to do her spelling, this was a score for both of us, she was learning, and I didn’t have to fuss.
Recently, I was introduced to 10-Minute Banana-Grams! I am the type of person, where I like a challenge. When we received 10-Minute Banana-Grams! in the mail, I sat down, opened the book and thought HAHA this will be easy. First 2 words I got fast, then I found myself saying wtf, so like all game books I looked in the back to see if there was a cheat, cheat back there, and SCORE. So now I see the word, and I am like omg, I cannot believe I missed that!
Guess what? Bananagrams has two new games.
Bananagrams, the creators of Bananagrams®, the international award-winning anagram tile game named Toy Fair 2009 “Game of the Year,” announced today the launch of two new word games: APPLETTERS™ and PAIRSinPEARS™.
Let me say both of these games are super fun! Gillian had me playing forever.
Both APPLETTERS and PAIRSinPEARS have several different games you can play with the tiles, or if you are a home schooling family like us these are great for spelling.
