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 10 years of age.
Product review of Magnet Levitation Kit
Posted 18 days ago
An adult's supervision during construction is necessary and that's fine, however, it would be more intuitive to a child if assembly is explained visually in a video so she can mentally follow. That way, the child would at least envision what she needs to do and the adult would be there for his motor skills only.
This is a great kit! We bought it as a back-up for a Science Fair project -- and we needed it. The instructions are easy to use, and the finished product is fantastic. The only suggestion I would make is to disregard the four taped together blocks and go to a craft store (AC Moore or Michaels) and buy a 24" piece of craft wood for the track base instead. Also, we drew on and painted our "train" car to make it look more realistic. Now, if I can just get my son to stop playing with his project so we can get it to the Fair! ;-)
A rating of Magnet Levitation Kit
Posted 8/2/2013 by Suresh Vasan
The morphibian toy we bought for our 5 year was an excellent choice. This can go on water as well as land, so it was fun for my son to play with it quite often.The toy itself(remote control car)was built water proof and rugged. Maneuvering mechanism was excellent that a 5year old can easily navigate through narrow space like a breeze.
