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.

Magnetic Fractile Review
Posted 10/27/2008 by Elizabeth
I use this product on the whiteboard in my classroom. It's great for demonstrating geometric ideas and the kids love playing with it. However, I wish the pieces were much much bigger. They are kind of small for a classroom board, although I understand they were designed for a refrigerator. They are also easy to loose because they are so small.
