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.
Great Educational Toy
Posted 7/16/2013 by Noelle Moser
Fractiles-7 is a great educational toy. I purchased this for my 8 year old son. He loves the Fractiles-7 and playes with it just about everyday. He enjoys making the designs on the package and using his imagination to make other new designs. Keeps him busy for hours and keeps his mind engaged. I like toys that teach math concepts without the child knowing it. As an educator I find that taking math off the page and putting it into the hands of students make it fun and interactive. This toy does just that and it a great investment.
Fab Fun with Patterns

My little sister really likes the Fractiles Travel. She has been having fun using it in the car to make all sorts of patterns. Her mom decided she should mostly use it in the car for now since she got a lot of other presents, so she has been going out to the car at the drop of a hat to play with the Fractiles. She really likes that it is magnetic. It makes it easy for her to move the pieces and not lose any.
A rating of Fractiles-7 Travel Edition

my 2 sons, ages 6 and almost 4 love this set. I bought it to use while traveling, to keep them occupied in restaurants, etc. it has worked great for this purpose. the boys instantly understood both that they could make the images included with the set and that they could use the same tiles to create their own images. the magnets stick well to the board, unlike many magnetic toys we have used, and even my younger son can move them around. its a great toy.
