Summer fun in the garden with Bananagrams jumbo games

Bananagrams.Inc have just released 2 supersized versions of their best selling word games, and they are set to be the must have outdoor fun for 2013, be it in a garden or a school. Both games are ideal for outdoor play that is both fun and innovative, and will be a real hit at barbecues, on trips to the beach, lunches at beer gardens and even at the playground.

Available now in UK stores, Jumbo ZIP-IT, which took second place at the inaugural Outdoor Toy Awards, is a large scale version of the 2 player, fast paced crossword race that can be played in only 20 seconds whilst Jumbo Bananagrams is a huge version of the original word game that is an international phenomenon.

Both games are perfect for innovative outdoor play at summer barbecues, daytrips to the seaside, beer-garden lunches and in the playground or, if the Great British weather disappoints, equally fun on the living room floor or in the classroom.

Jumbo Bananagrams (RRP: £54.99) features 144 waterproof, three-inch square tiles packaged in a funky giant yellow banana-shaped tote bag. Requiring no pencil, paper or board, Jumbo Bananagrams is addictive fun and educational play for kids age five to 105 at home or on the go. Players race against each other to build giant crossword grids and use all their letter tiles.

Jumbo ZIP-IT (RRP: £54.99) is an exhilarating high-speed crossword race featuring 24 beautiful wooden lettered two-inch cubes and coloured scoring zips that come built into the pouch. To play, each person takes 12 cubes and races to form his/her own crossword grid using any side of the cubes. The first player to use all his/her own cubes calls “ZIP!” and marks a point by moving his/her own zip up the pouch. The first person to score 10 points calls “ZIP-IT!” and wins the game.

Both games are available to buy from all good book and toy stores on the High Street or online from Winning Moves. Visit for more information.
