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 3 years of age.
A rating of Hexbug Nano Zip Line Starter Set
Posted 1/13/2013 by JULIE C VEOMETT
Our kids have several hex bugs and track sets. The zip line was a big hit! It's definitely different than any other set they have and they are really enjoying it. It also came with multiple "backpacks" to put on their bugs so several can ride at a time.
This was the only non-video game gift my 12-year-old son received this year. He had seen it in the store and was pleased to receive it. We'll leave it up and operating in his room as sort of a diversionary toy. While he would much rather play video games, he can't do that all the time! A younger child who enjoys Hexbugs will love this item. The main challenge with Hexbugs is in not losing them!
