A cultural icon since 1938.
From its invention in 1938 by Alfred Mosher Butts, an out-of-work architect from Poughkeepsie, New York, board game Scrabble has grown from an underground craze to a cultural icon. The key to the game’s success is Scrabble’s carefully calibrated letter distribution, its addictive mix of chance and skill, and Butts’s unwavering belief in his product, after being refused several times by the established game manufacturers of his era.
Much like the game, officially licensed Scrabble giftware encourages wordplay, through products like Fridge Magnets with combinable word tiles, letter stamps and customisable bunting. Scrabble gift products also reference the game’s recognisable red and green branding and delightful design details like Triple Word Scores, letter values and retro wooden tiles.
