Fruit Salad Bananagram Style

First there was Bananagrams now there is Appleletters and Pairs in Pears. It's a fruit salad of word games.

The fast moving word game Bananagrams consists of 144 ivory-like little tiles in a funny zipped banana pouch. Players place tiles face down on the table and randomly select 21 tiles. The players turn their letters right-side up simultaneously and proceed to form as many intersecting and interconnecting words as possible from their own letters, which can be rearranged as many times as desired throughout the game.
Appleletters come in an apple-shaped pouch with a soft, zip-closed top that includes 110 tiles with red capital letters that maybe used to play three different games. In Appleletters, for two to six players ages 5 and up, players alternately add tiles to the first or last letters of the word in the middle of the table creating a continuous "snake" of new words. Apple Turnover, 2 to 4 players ages 7 and up, is similar to Appletter. However each player begins with 21 letters instead of nine, and may actually replace an opponents word with a longer word. The goal is to be the first player to get rid of tiles. In Applescore for 2 to 4 players ages 7 and up, players build words as long as possible in crossword-like fashion and get bonus points for length, palindromes and going out first.
Pairs in Pears come complete with capital tiles featuring various designs (dots, lines, blank and solid) this comes packaged in a zip-open pear-shaped pouch with a hanging rope (stem) at the top. It is designed to help kids work on cognitive skills and memory as well as the order of the alphabet, vocabulary and rhyming as they practice forming words.
