Big Letter Bananagrams
The elderly and the very young have many needs in common: naps, easy access to a bathroom, frequent meals, and now Big Letter Bananagrams. Offering greater visibility for those with visual impairments, the Big Letter Bananagrams tiles are 50% larger than those in the regular Bananagrams set and have a bold, easily-discernible, higher-contrast font. This makes it is easier for your preschooler to find matching tiles, locate a particular letter, or, to challenge his auditory memory, find a short series of letters.
Turn the tiles over and play a memory game, or put the tiles in alphabetical order. Once you get started, you will be astonished at all that you can do with Big Letter Bananagrams, but if you are stumped, check out our Preschool handbook for our favorite games to play with Big Letter Bananagrams. Big Letter Bananagrams can also be used in the same way as its diminutive cousin, as an educational word game requiring no pencil, paper, or bulky board. Big Letter Bananagrams' simple, parallel play lets every member of the family play at his own level. There are many ways to play, from high-adrenaline strategy to relaxing solitaire, and Big Letter Bananagrams does all that. Big Letter Bananagrams features 144 tiles packaged in a yellow banana-shaped cloth tote bag.

”Both my daughter and I learn better when we fully involved in the activity. Bananagrams are an awesome way to learn letters, spelling, reading and letter sounds.”Read the Review
Photocopied the tiles in simple words then the boys line up tiles on the words, cat, hat, bat, etc. They are 3 & 5. My husband and I play banagrams. Fun for the whole family!
This is such a fun game for the entire family!
We love this as a family game or a learning game. My daughter will just take out the tiles and start building words .
These tiles are great!! We work on ABC order, finding letters, and my oldest uses them to build words! The options are limitless!
Our whole family enjoys our Bananagrams! My preschoolers like to use them in sensory bins or match them. The first grader likes to play "mystery word" where I give him the letters for a 3-4 letter word and he figures out what it is. Sometimes he comes up with other words that use the same tiles. My older kids like to play the game using the normal game play.
