Bananagrams to mark 10th anniversary with The Bananagrams Lounge

Published on: 25th November 2015

The brand is celebrating the occasion by sponsoring The Bananagrams Lounge at Toy Fair 2016.

Bananagrams-480The lounge will be a convenient and comfortable meeting point where visitors can discover whether their own name is also a playable word.

A giant word grid on display in The Bananagrams Lounge will feature 814 given names that are also playable words in the game. Deej Johnson, the author of The Little Book of Bananagrams, researched the name/word definitions of more than 17,000 monikers from around the world before creating the grid by hand.

Rena Nathanson, CEO at Bananagrams, said: “Toy Fair is where it all began – the first place that we showed our game to the industry and the place where it first captured the imaginations of buyers. In our 10th Bananaversary year, as we again grow our range whilst celebrating the classic game that started it all, we felt it was a fitting tribute to provide a fun and engaging space for visitors to meet, chat and relax whilst enjoying everything the show has to offer.”

The Bananagrams Lounge will be located at stand G122 on the ground floor.
