Making Words with Bananagrams

My daughter was recently sent the all new Bananagrams WildTiles which are new to the UK.  There are 150 WildTiles which are contained in their own banana shaped bag, this includes the six monkey WildTiles.  As you can see Grotbags thinks learning different words is good fun.


To play the game all the tiles are turned faceside down and if 4 players are playing they each pick 21 tiles. Any player then shouts "Split" and all players turn their tiles and try to use them all to form a crossword grid. The monkey WildTiles can be used as any letter.  There are other rules but we played our simplified version to help Grotbags with her spelling.


You can buy Bananagrams WildTiles from John Lewis and Amazon with a RRP of £16.99 they are aged at children 7 years and over.  They are currently available in 31 counties and multiple languages.  We love that we can take these out with us, especially if we are going away for the weekend, they are so simple but such great fun.

We were sent this product free of charge for the purpose of this review.

  7. Bananagrams seems like such a fun game - I have to admit though I'm not to good with spelling so I go a little crazy with word games haha.
