The brand boasts numerous successful games such as Appletters and Zip It, and 2016 will see the launch of two new games – My First Bananagrams and Bananagrams Party.

Nathanson also founded The Bananagrams Challenge, a primary schools tournament which is now in its second year in the UK and launched in the US earlier this year.
