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 8 years of age.
Information about Hexbug Robotic Bug
Posted 9/24/2012 by Francine Fields
I haven't given it to the grandkids yet, but the youngest, male, aged 5, told me when I recently visited that his broke and he would like another one. So, based on that, a one time request, it must have been a hit. I think he was a little young when given the last one. His sis liked it too.
I purchased 5 of these bugs for my nephews and son for Christmas. They range in age from 5 to 11. They enjoyed playing with their bugs together and were using them in many creative ways. All the bugs had a dance party, which was entertaining! Unfortunately, my son broke one of the bug's legs a few days later. Daddy glued it back on, but this toy is probably best for children ages 7-10 due to its fragility.
