Rena Nathanson, Founder of Bananagrams, said, “For the second year running, primary school educators and independent retailers have recognised how engaging and adaptable the Bananagrams Family of Games is for use at home, in the classroom and even in the playground. There’s a game for every age bracket from 3+ and our focus on fun with an educational twist really does epitomise the very idea of learning through play. I’m incredibly grateful to the testers who put each game through its paces before deciding on the final winners and to the independent retailers who continue to support our games in their stores.”
