Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.



Since it premiered at the London Toy Fair in 2006, Bananagrams has been touted as a must-have game and showered with toy industry recognition awards. Invented by Abraham Nathanson of Narragansett, RI, the game consists of 144 lettered tiles, housed in a banana-shaped pouch. Combining the best aspects of both Scrabble and Boggle, Bananagrams provides for both fun and educational, word-building skills. As the founding family says, "This game will drive you bananas!"
