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 4 years of age.
My rating of Strange Plants Garden
Posted 1/2/2011 by Kathy Strittmatter
The idea of the strange plants terrarium is wonderful. It fell short of my expectations. Directions were unclear at some points and not in a very coherent order. One of the first things that should be mentioned is that each of the seeds has a different time frame for germination, so the planting could be spread over several weeks to achieve the full effect. Four separate containers instead of one large one could help children focus on the different needs for each type of plant. It should also have been mentioned early that seeds should be saved in case a second planting is needed. An excited 6 year old did not let me get that far before he wanted to pour everything into the dirt. In hindsight I should have researched the care and growth cycles of the plants more carefully. If a link to the product instructions were made available, other parents might be able to see and decide if the terrarium is a project they feel comfortable trying with their kids. The directions for the germination of the pitcher plant are extremely difficult to understand. The product directions differ from those on the back of the seed envelope. It doesn't say how much dirt to mix with the teaspoon of distilled water, or if more dirt or water needs to be added during the 6 week session in the refrigerator. Because a carnivorous plant is the highlight of this project for my son, I truly hope I guessed right in my measurements.
We're hoping to unearth the instructions for this kit and post for our viewers soon! If digging up fun is a challenge with your Dunecraft kit, call us! Our customer received assistance along with some TGC - tender growing care. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.
Each plant has special instructions and different germination times. Some have to be kept in the refrigerator for a certain amount of time etc. All in all it will be interesting when it's grown, but it's more complicated than what I had hoped
