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 8 years of age.
Snap Circuits Light - Like Legos with Lights & Electricity
Posted 4/9/2014 by Thomas Zakielarz
My son purchased this with a gift certificate. He says it's "Pretty Cool" and likens it to a Legos set enhanced with lights and electricity. He has only gotten to some of the basic projects but has enjoyed hooking it up to his iPod for music/lights. Good explanation of the components and their uses both for this system and electricity in general. He noticed it's not compatible with other snap circuit systems due to the electrical requirements of the extra light components. It might be compatible w/o using those items.
So I bought this gift for my nephew in sixth grade after hearing he couldn't put the circuit set down that I purchased last year (a different, yet similar one from Fat Brain).
I was hoping it wouldnt be too similar and that he'd enjoy just as much since this one had the lights.
I am told I hit it out of the park once again. He loved the features on this one and immediately tore into it to try the projects. He explained what was challenging, what he did wrong, what he did right...I know what I did right. Score one for Auntie.
