As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.

"When I first started using this with my students, I would just give them one card and lay one other card down to have them 'spot it.' This way they were able to understand how the game was going to be played. Some are still at this stage and others are progressing to being able to compete with someone at the same level. "
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Learning Disabilities
"The colors and objects are bright and easy to see. No matter how fast or slow you are, the game still provides the brain to see the clearly marked items. It may just take more time for the slow learner to match."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Alzheimer's,
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome,
Sensory Integration Disorder,

"I actually enlarge the cards for my patients with visual impairments. I will also enlarge a card -cut it up into individual figures and present one figure to have the individual localize it on its card. Or I can show an individual picture (single item) and have the individual find it out of a figure ground demand of two cards next to each other... or two cards separated by 2 inches/3 inches/4 inches and the individual has to visually scan without moving their head....Or I can hold one card at a foot/2 feet/3 feet etc. away from the other card that is on the table and have a near-far demand which is what will be required for board to desk work in the future. I also will move a card in a horizontal/ verticle/ or rotational direction so that the individual will have to visually track the target as they transition from distance to near and back visual discriminations. Also I can show one item have the individual visualize it and take it away so now they have to use visual memory to localize on the card. There are many more ways to utilize these toys...it is the need of the individual and their level of availability that allows me to use my creative spirit and knowledge base to develop their visual perception, egocentric and sociocentric localization and utilization of toys as tools to learn. It allows us all to "not be captured by the disability but instead be available for the possibilty" of meaningful learning for our children and adults with special needs."

Picked this up on a whim for my 4 year old, even though she is below the recommended minimum age. She LOVES it. She likes trying to match pictures, and even though she can't read yet, the word icons help with rapid letter recognition. We just play the basic versions with her, but my stepdaughter ALSO likes this, and we use the more challenging versions with her.
We played this game on a camping trip and loved it. It was also played at a family reunion. The instructions are easy to follow and have five variations to change up the game. Spot It is a great game for all ages, even playing against each other as age doesn't automatically have an advantage.
I'm a speech and language therapist and feel this game is great. There are so many ways to play and it works for a variety of ages and abilities. It works well for the different groups of kids I work with.
Big Hit with all the kids!

All 4 of my grandchildren ages 2 to 6 LOVE the Spot it! game. We play it in a variety of ways as shown in game directions, and in ways the kids make up. The kids want to play every time they come to visit, which is almost weekly.
