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.
Most websites have given this particular product a very high review, and we weren't disappointed! This made for a great birthday gift for Dad, something he can do with his daughter (who also loved it!)
GRANDKIDS LOVED IT
Posted 7/26/2014 by Janene Marietta
THIS IS NOT AN EVERY DAY TOY BUT I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY GRAND DAUGHTER FOR HER BIRTHDAY AND SHE WAS VERY EXCITED TO GET IT, MY GRANDSON WAS ALSO VERY INTERESTED IN HOW IT WORKED AND SEEING THE END GAME. THERE WAS A 2ED GRADE TEACHER AT THE PARTY AND SHE WANTED THE INFORMATION ON HOW TO GET ONE FOR HER FAMILY. SHE THOUGH IT WAS A GREAT GIFT TO GET HER KIDS OR GIVE TO A FRIEND. IT WAS A BIG HIT AT THE PARTY. I WOULD BUY IT AGAIN WITHOUT HESITATION.
Was very disappointed in the performance of this product. One loaded up with rocks and sand, tumbler would not turn. Small wheel that applies pressure to tumbler didn't keep enough pressure to keep it turning. Unloaded half of producing in tumbler, still did not operate properly.
Tumbler not tumbling - wheel right around to our Returns & Exchanges Center. We assisted our customer promptly.
