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.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Aspergers,
Speech & Language Delay
"Our speech delayed child is repeating the sayings the cat says along with some of the names of the pictures on the cards. Our MR child uses the kitty to find the correct answer and from the answer figures out what question was being asked. Knowing then what is being asked she can figure out how to read the sentence. Our Aspergers child loves the vibration. She will hit the correct answer 3 times till it vibrates. She doesn't like the light up eyes so she just turns it round so she can't see them. Our developmentally delayed child who tries to skip through everything and avoid reading has to slow down and sound out the words to the question. Since the kitty makes it fun their is no more fighting over reading. It is also helping him understand what he is reading. "
My daughter loves this pen! She received some of the hot dot cards as a gift but did not receive the pen. So we went and picked out the kitty pen and got another set of hot dot cards. She is constantly sitting on the couch with me and answering the questions. She gets so excited when the kitty purrs and she is 5. Sometime she just keeps making the pen meow which gets a little annoying but there is a volume button which rocks. The only slight negative is the fact that it goes through batteries.
