 APPLETTERS (RRP15.99) is a domino-like game for ages six and up where players connect letters in lieu of dots.  The game comes in an apple-shaped cloth pouch containing 110 ivory-like tiles.  In addition to the version for a younger audience, the game also includes instructions for more adult play - APPLE TURNOVER™ for an extra challenge and APPLESCORE™ for word lovers who like to keep score.

PAIRSinPEARS (RRP15.99) is a word construction game for ages six and up where players race to make pairs of connecting words in matching patterns.  PAIRSinPEARS comes in a pear-shaped cloth pouch, containing four full alphabet sets in four beautiful distinct patterns.  The game provides educational fun for children learning vowels and consonants, alphabetical order, word construction and pattern recognition. 

Both games carry on the tradition of no external packaging and are very tactile.  Together, the games offer a wonderful range of game play and look great in a fruit bowl!

“We created APPLETTERS and PAIRSinPEARS in response to requests from teachers who, along with their students, love Bananagrams and were interested in games for younger children,” said Abe Nathanson, CEO aka Top Banana, Bananagrams.  “The family and I have been working on the apple and pear games for nearly two years, creating high-quality designs – paying particular attention to the tile weights for both games, the self-racking feature of the Appletters tiles and the variety of play instructions for both games, so that players of all ages can participate.  We are excited to finally share APPLETTERS and PAIRSinPEARS with Bananagrams fans and word game enthusiasts alike. As we have continued with the tradition of no extra packaging or superfluous pieces, these games are also perfect for travel and can be played anywhere."

APPLELETTERS and PAIRSinPEARS will be available in the UK from the end of October.
