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 3 years of age.

"Yes, the child I was working with who as Autism, loved feeling it, blowing through it and smelling it. He had a huge smile on his face as he was whistling. He also asked me to whistle all the time while looking at me which is rare. "
Review of Train Whistle
Posted 2/5/2013 by Richard Darby
Purchased the whistle to be used in our band. We play a number of tran songs and we thought the addition of the train whistle would be a nice touch.
It is well made. Requires a big breath of air to really "sound" the whistle but it is manageable .
Information about Train Whistle

It is a great whistle and a great idea. It is our fault because we got it for a child that was too young for it. It doesn't fit over his mouth as it is too big. He'll have to grow into it. I never dreamed a whistle would be that big. :)
