Every game in the Bananagrams range, including foreign language editions of the classic game, has scooped at least one award this autumn.

Bananagrams’ haul of over 20 prizes have been awarded by both trade and consumer panels made up of parents, educators and retailers.

Travel word game Zip-It, Bananagrams and supersized edition Jumbo Bananagrams picked up awards including a Dads’ Choice Award, an Independent Toy Award and a Primary Teacher Update Award.

“For three years in a row now, families, primary school educators and independent retailers have recognised the quality, fun and educational values of our games and I’m absolutely thrilled," said Rena Nathanson, Top Banana at Bananagrams, Inc.

"We have games for all ages from three and above which are entirely adaptable for use at home or in the classroom and truly encapsulate the ethos of learning through play. Yet again we faced stiff competition in our categories so we’re grateful to all the testers who put our games through their paces and deemed them truly worthy of these awards.”
