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 0 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"These flashcards are great for helping autistic kids to read faces in a non-confrontational environment. Maybe better for a slightly older autistic child than mine, who is 3. More appropriate for the 5 year old set, but still helpful for little ones. I just pull out the simple cards (happy, angry, etc) and just use those for now."
My son got these as a gift from his great grandmother. He has autism and I wanted to use them to help him learn about different types of emotions and reading people's expressions. I agree with another reviewer who said that it would have been better if they used real faces. Many of the emotions depicted are too complex for him to understand (he is 3) but he does seem to be learning what a happy face looks like, versus an angry face. I think they would be great for an older autistic child. We will continue to use them and build on what he has learned for a long time to come. The cards are excellent quality.
Product review of Feelings Flashcards
Posted 1/25/2011 by Ricia King
The size and thickness of the cards is great. She loves to pull them out and looks at certain ones that we have talked about but others are too complicated for a 2 year old. We look at "happy"/"sad", "ants in my pants", "quiet shhhh", "loud", "calm" (because we can talk about the baby and the star in the window.
I love the idea but was a little disappointed in the weird faces and colors used. I would have liked it to be more "lifelike" and similar to what real people look like.
