When Klutz published The Encyclopedia of Immaturity in 2007, they knew it would make a great gift for someone’s nephew. And, sure enough, people gave it to their nephews — but also to their grandparents, brothers-in-law and accountants. Soon they were flooded with letters, e-mails and calls sharing one common theme — ""More! More! More!""
So here’s a second helping of skills, activities, and secret knowledge — suitable only for those whose maturity stopped developing around the age of 12. In addition to thought-provoking topics like What We Talk About When We Talk About Wedgies, the book includes detailed directions for how to: fake a cold, slide down a banister, balance a ping pong ball on your nose, send a toiletgram, throw a sloshie, and more.
It’s all new and all hopelessly goofy. For years we’ve felt like the only kids at the grown-up table. Now it turns out the world is populated by a lot more people who are lot less mature than they look. Well, duh!
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 9 years of age.
Entertaining and Funny

We gave this as a gift to our 12 year old for his birthday. We didn't think he would spend much time reading it but he reads it often and does the activities he reads about. He's shared it with his friends and they've had good laughs and one asked to borrow it. This book got a 12 year old to put away his video games during his one hour a day limit. What he liked best was that nobody else had an Encyclopedia of Immaturity and his friends liked it too.
