What is it
From Bananagrams – the anagram game that drives you bananas! – comes My First Bananagrams, designed to help ripen your little learner’s vocabulary.
The banana shaped bag is filled with colourful lower-case letters and unique double-letter tiles, designed to make it easier for mini-wordsmiths. Players race against each other to build crossword grids and use all their letter tiles. There’s no turn-taking to be found here – it all happens at once and it’s a race to the finish.
A collection of fun games is included with ten curriculum-based games to help improve vocabulary.

What our experts think
We’re big fans of the Bananagrams word game and couldn’t wait to give this junior version a try! It was just as popular as the original but the new tiles were more appealing to our younger testers. The racing style really adds to the excitement of the game!
This set is also more tailored towards teaching English skills – the vowels are all the same colour and the letter pairs encourage children to practise common graphemes. There are also a variety of activities to keep the game exciting and build vocabulary. Great for active learning!
Playing with others also helps children develop their social skills and experience a little friendly competition.
