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.
Information about Happy Hopping Solar Powered Frog
This comes unassembled, which is nice, in that kids get to see and assemble the workings of a machine. However, I got it for a seven-year-old, and it was far too complicated for her. Getting the tiny screws in required an eyeglass screwdriver and a lot if elbow grease. It's a bit fussy for a child's toy. The solar power is neat, but it needs absolutely full sun (a rarity in Oregon winter!) And the motion is very slow - hop a half-inch ... Waaaaiiiitttt ... Hop. Not that exciting.

My husband put the frog together for my son. They charged it according to the directions but it didn't work. They tried this process several times before we returned it for a refund. Now my son just has to decide if he would like order to something else in its place or reorder the same product (and cross our fingers that the first frog was just a lemon!).

The nine year old recipient was immediately drawn to the opportunity to build his own toy and was able to complete the task quickly with assistance. The toy is fun to play with and an interest in solar options to battery power was piqued.
