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 1 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism,
"I struggle to find toys that interest and engage my 6-year old with Down Syndrome and autism. I look for toys that she is capable of using by herself. This drum is great for her. It taps into her love of music and rhythm but adds the visual component of the rolling beads. It is simple enough for her to play with by herself, but she also has fun playing to music or while we sing with her. I really like the cross-sensory stimulation of this toy!"

"This drum is awesome. First, it has a great ocean scene inside. Second, when you move the drum back and forth, these little beads roll (which in itself is completely entertaining) and makes an ocean sound. Third, it comes with a mallet to use as a drum and makes a very nice, strong drum sound. Love it!"
Review for Ocean Wave Drum

The holder for the playing stick was pulled off instantly. This is a one year
old. If the holder was to be used it should be permanently attached.
So now we have a loose stick. The idea was good but not useable. He loved
I bought this drum for my 12month old niece. She loves shaking it to make the ocean sounds and to watch the beads with the fish. When she isn't playing with it her 3 year old brother is!! He loves it just as much as she does! It really was a great find!
A rating of Ocean Wave Drum

Sturdy, well made. my grandson won't put it down!! he loves to take it in the car and it's never far from him at home. I would reccomend this for children just starting to investigate sound and how it changes from using the drumstick on the drum, their fingers, their hands, and any other toy they can hit on the drum. It's amazing how they recognize the differnt sounds based on what they hit the drum with and to watch what prefernces they have based on the sounds.
