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 6 years of age.

"The adult this material was purchased for enjoys creating patterns and identifying patterns. He needed encouragement to break apart the pieces, due to the pattern he discovered in seeing it initially. This encouraged him to take a risk to break the pattern and create new ones."
8 year old likes it

My 8 year old has been asking for "bigger kid" toys. Tried Fractiles-7 because he likes art and design. The toy keeps his interest and he likes to come up with his own patterns. It's a good way to have parent-kid time as well, because there's room for two patterns on the magnetic board.
It was the first thing my six year old granddaughter played with. She is engrossed in it, and has her grandfather right with her. She is very intent and I think the precision required is wonderful for her age. She likes puzzles above most toys so it is very intriguing for her. I will say that she has a great deal of patience...for kids who like quick and furious action this might not be as much fun.
The design is good, very solid. The suggested designs are great...many of them, many intricate and enticing to recreate.
My rating of Fractiles-7
Posted 12/26/2012 by Linda Buckley
Three geometric shapes... and the patterns are limitless! My 18 year old daughter and I have been sharing play time with Fractiles. We love it. We have copied the samples on the back of the box and we've made up our own. We like the combining of art, geometry, pattern-creation, etc... Too many toys these days have a limited range of play... only one way to use it, or only one outcome, and require no imagination or thought. I have always avoided time-wasters like that when buying gifts for my six children, and now grand-children. Fractiles is one of the good ones!
