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 5 years of age.

"This was actually easier than the Lego plane kits. The stickers made it feel more like a model to him. The instruction booklet was a little difficult for him to see, but with a very small amount of prompting he built it by himself. "
I have to start by saying this is probably the lowest rating I have ever given anything from Fat Brain; typically, I can count on anything they sell to be better than I even expect! I bought this set for my Lego-loving son, and he was excited to put it together with my assistance. At first, the pieces seemed to fit a little tighter than Legos, which is nice because we like to play with our models, and Legos often fall apart. Then I noticed there was a piece missing. Of course, Fat Brain was very helpful and it was easily exchanged (because we really liked the toy!). Sadly, some of these pieces did not stay together, and we used super glue to keep them together. There is no place to fit the pilot figure on the plane, or any other type of figure, which is important to note. Still, it is a pretty cute little model, and my son still plays with it now and then.
