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 3 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Down Syndrome
"Twig helps with hand and eye coordination. I have used this toy to help my daughter identify colors. It also helps with problem solving and learning to put shapes together. "
Joint gift for 3 year old girl and 5 year old boy. They like these and will play with them together. Although the shapes are simple, they have not yet figured out that there are really many, many ways to assemble them. I think they will grow into them. They don't hold the 3 year old's attention as long as they do for the 5 year old.
Twig has a range of possibilities. It is well made and appealing in appearance. It has intrigued my children and encouraged them to try different things. The pieces have a loose fit, which has made it easier for my young children to put the pieces together and has caused less frustration (since they are not struggling with every piece). My 2 year old and 4 year olds can all play with it with minimal assistance, which also has its benefits.
