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 7 years of age.
Review of Game of Life
Posted 12/18/2011 by Kim Risner
I purchased all of my Fat Brain toys for children of families I sponsored at Christmas thru a local organization known as Angel Baskets, so I don't know the children who received them. But I was impressed w/ the quality of the packaging and the timing of delivery AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE TOYS WERE MADE IN THE USA
New and Improved Game of Life (it's gotten even better!)

This game has certainly changed since I last played it in the early 1970's. But I bought it for our family and it has certainly been updated. "Pay Taxes" spaces are plenty. There have been some notable changes such as the vehicles. No longer do we have the drop-top sedans but now we're driving minivans. The amounts paid on payday have certainly gone up. The path to college starts with a $100,00 loan (!) from the bank and ends with you selecting a college career from a deck. The Free Spin has definitely added more fun and flair to the game. And homes now include the "Starter Home" and your "final" home. There is now a share the wealth cards (I don't remember those) and your long-term investment. While the game has become a little more complicated, it hasn't lost its charm after all these years. My wife, 8-year old son, and I played last night and it was a delightful 2 hours. We're looking forward to playing it again.
