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 0 years of age.
Ice Cream Maker
Posted 1/30/2009 by Mary Louise Toth
This is fun for the whole family. We made our ice cream with half and half and used kosher salt and it was ready in less than a half hour. Two 8 year olds did all the work and had a "ball!" We all enjoyed the ice cream.
We have only used the ball once and I didn't actually have enough ice to fill the ball fully. We still made ice cream. We made vanilla and it tasted wonderful. For those who don't follow directions fully, like me, it will take a bit longer to setup.
This simple, futuristic device is as fun as the old fashioned hand-cranked ice cream machine. It is so portable. Nothing tastes better homemade ice cream made from simple and fresh ingredients. My family had so much fun playing with this ice cream maker. It only takes about 25 minutes, the ball rolls or spins very easily, and it's very simple to use. We're anxious to experiment with more variations and creating our own ice cream recipes. One hint: for a firmer textured ice cream use non-alcoholic vanilla flavoring, vanilla beans or vanilla sugar since alcohol will keep the ice cream from hardening as much.
