Bananagrams for Toddlers?
Yes! The all-new, oversized Jumbo Bananagrams tile is a substantial three-inch indestructible square, so it is safe even for your little guys. Imagine the possibilities; while you pull dinner together, your toddler can lay out the tiles on the living room floor, and you can have him find any matching tiles, locate a particular letter, or, to really challenge his auditory memory, find a short series of letters. Turn the tiles over and play a memory game, put the tiles in alphabetical order, or spell out family names or simple words. Once you get started, you will be astonished at all that you can do with Jumbo Bananagrams. And the best part? Due to their size and soft vinyl composition, you know your toddler is safe while he plays.
Multiple Uses for Multiple Ages
Then, while your toddler naps, Jumbo Bananagrams can be used in the same way as its diminutive cousin, as an educational word game requiring no pencil, paper, or bulky board. Jumbo Bananagrams' simple, parallel play lets every member of the family play at his own level. And because the goal of Jumbo Bananagrams is to use every tile, the challenge of rearranging already-laid letters into new words builds both vocabulary and spelling skills. There are many ways to play original Bananagrams, from high-adrenalin strategy to relaxing solitaire, and Jumbo Bananagrams does all that. But in addition, by using the suggested adaptations that are included, your older kids can exercise their bodies as well as their brains.

Sturdy and Versatile
Jumbo Bananagrams features 144 waterproof, three-inch-square tiles packaged in a giant yellow banana-shaped tote bag. At seven pounds, Jumbo Bananagrams miserably fails the throw-it-in-your-purse test, and its size is too cumbersome to be played on a restaurant table, but Jumbo Bananagrams is the most versatile Bananagrams ever and our new personal favorite. Please note, legally we can only recommend Jumbo Bananagrams for children ages three and up.

Educational Games Can Be Challenging to Take When Traveling
Teaching parents may look forward to summer vacation as much as their children do. But, unlike their children, parents are aware that too much time off from academics carries a price. A proven way around this is to incorporate as many educational games into your children's summer routine as possible. This is an easy task when you are home, but a bit of a challenge for families on the go.
Bananagrams Is Easy to Pack and Play on the Go
So if you are looking for a word game that is educational; requires no pencil, paper, or bulky board; and can be played in as little as five minutes, then you are looking for Bananagrams! The object of the game is to create as many words as possible from your tiles, each word interconnected by a shared letter. Bananagrams' simple, parallel play lets every member of the family play at his own level. And because the goal of Bananagrams is to use every tile, the challenge of rearranging already-laid letters into new words builds both vocabulary and spelling skills.
Similiar to Scrabble, But Each Player Makes His Own Grid
Beginning with all 144 letters face down, each player takes twenty-one tiles, leaving the remainder in a pile in the middle. At the word 'split' everyone turns over his tiles and starts making his own grid of intersecting words. As soon as anyone has used all his letters, every player must take another tile, whether he is ready for it or not. If someone has a letter he just can't fit into his grid, he can put it back into the pile--but he has to take three extra letters as a penalty. When there are fewer tiles left than there are players, the anxiety increases as everyone races to be the first to complete his grid.
High-Adrenalin Competition Is Just One Variation
As you can imagine, Bananagrams' high adrenalin strategy makes the original game very exciting. But there are less stressful alternatives, too. In Banana Smoothie, all the facedown letters are divided equally among the players. And in Banana Café, a variation that is best for restaurant play, tiles are drawn out of the banana pouch instead of being spread on the table.
