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.

My 12 year old grandson looked through this (he's a science buff) and he stated it really didn't teach him anything and it was boring. The was it was described on your site made it appear much more mature and interesting which would appeal to this particular grandson. I did not think if offered anything remotely interesting.
Your opinion matters. Your satisfaction matters more. We contacted our customer promptly. If you're not completely intrigued by a Fat Brain Toy, you'll be completely enamored with our Returns & Exchanges Center. We make every effort to ensure fun!

This has a multitude of explanations of the way our brain works. I love how it came with all the necessary pieces and I didn't have to "create" projects from scratch. I bought this for my 6 year old daughter. She is still a little young to understand all the things but she is having fun with most of it. The instructions are very easy to follow.
