Play Creatively

When Abe Nathanson and his family invented Bananagrams, they had no intention whatsoever of trying to sell it!  The family just wanted to create a game that all ages and skill levels could play together.  It had to be simple, fast and easy to play anywhere!  In short, it had to “aPEEL” to many different audiences.

Depending on the number of players, there are great ways to customize the game to your group and make it even more fun and engaging.  Since its launch, we’ve heard from hundreds of fans who love the game and have even created their own “house rules.” 

We decided to compile some of our favorite rules and tips for winning the game, and share them with all of you!

He did the mash... it was a graveyard smash...

Halloween is just around the corner and we’ve got monsters on the brain! Thinking about monster-themed toys immediately to mind some favorite 70s icons – Scooby Doo, Count Chocula cereal, and -- of course -- the classic song, Monster Mash!  Not so scary, but so much fun. Today’s children have a terrific wide array of toys with a fun, not-too-scary monster vibe!  Consider adding some of these spooky recommendations from Twirl Toy Shop to your toyshop this month.
