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.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"We purchased this for our 5 year old autistic son. He really enjoys educational topics and toys. We thought a scientific toy would be an appropriate addition to his toys. He really loved looking at the various bugs and liked that it lites up and speaks about the bug. He was quickly able to figure out the controls after a little guidance from my husband and myself. The slides were a little tricky to get on and off, but he was able to master it on his own. After a short time he became engaged in the other features of the microscope as well. We are hoping it becomes a well loved and used toy. It is off to a great start."
My grandson was very excited when he opened this microscope. It was something he said he wanted from the FBT catalog. He is a young kindergartner and absolutely loves learning. I sat with him for the first few slides and he was able to insert the slides and remembered the instructions very quickly. I was impressed with how much he remembered from the information when taking the quiz. He abvolutely loves this toy!
Wonderful Educational Toy

We got this microscope for our 5 (nearly 6) year old son as a Christmas gift. He is very into school and various academic related toys. He is very engaged by the device. I like that it speaks to him about the various bugs on the slides and allows more information on the item, if desired. At this point, he pops the slide out before it completely goes through the lesson, but I'm sure that will pass as the newness of the toy wears off. The one problem we found is that the slides require a little pressure to secure and remove. We had one slide that took a little work before we realized it wasn't fully attached and we've had a few slides fly across the table while he learns to remove them on his own. With all that said, he is able to load and unload the slides and enter the code all by himself. If you are able to sit down and guide the child through the first several fundamentals of the toy, they will definitely be able to play with it all by themselves in no time at all.
More than I expected

I have a real scientific microscope that handed down to me from my father who is a doctor. I have had the strong desire to share the experience of using it with my son since he was old enough to look through binoculars, but it's too advanced and too fragile. This microscope toy is a great alternative. It was a little difficult for my four year old (and me) to get the slide in position to activate the microscope at first, but once that's done, it's all microscopic vision and learning.
