Hello to you!! 

Are you ready to learn something cool?

Joey wants to know if you have ever played Scrabble? Scrabble is a fun game to play with your family and friends. You make words and score points. Did you know that Scrabble was invented by an unemployed architect named Alfred M. Butts? It wasn’t always called Scrabble though. Alfred M. Butts first named the game Lexiko and then it was renamed to Criss Cross Words. Then his friend and business partner came up with the name Scrabble and that is how Scrabble was born.

 

What is your favorite board game?

 

Facts about Scrabble:

1. The word game Lexico came out in 1931. Criss Cross Words came out in 1938. In 1948 Criss Cross Words was revamped and renamed as Scrabble.

3. By 1954 a little over 3,798,500 Scrabble games were sold. The Scrabble game is now sold in over 120 countries. Over 150 million Scrabble games have been sold all over the world. Scrabble is available in more than 25 different languages. There is even a braille edition for the visually impaired.

4. Scrabble was first sold in Great Britain in 1955.

5. There are 100 tiles in the Scrabble game. 98 of those tiles have letters on them and two tiles are blank.

6. It is believed that Alfred M. Butts was inspired by the crossword puzzles from the New York Times newspaper. The crossword puzzles inspired him to make the game we now know as Scrabble. What a wonderful invention scrabble was and still is today. 

7. In 1989 Hasbro acquired the rights to the Scrabble board games.

8. Sometime in 2004, Scrabble was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.

Facts about the Philippine eagle

Good day to you!! 

Joey and Jinger want to know if you have ever heard of the Philippine eagle before? They think the Philippine eagle is cute because of the fluffy feathers on top of its head. Joey and Jinger would like me to tell you all about this very rare and majestic bird. The Philippine eagle was also known as the monkey eating eagle. It is in their nature to eat other animals such as monkeys and lemurs. The Philippine eagle is a carnivore. Carnivore means that they eat meat. 


Are you ready to read some more interesting facts about this amazing eagle?
