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.
Great first telescope
Posted 7/17/2013 by Maria Wright
We received this telescope last week, and even though we have only had 2 clear nights, we have played around with it quite a bit. It's so exciting when your kids see the surface of the moon through the lens for the first time! My only complaint is that the tripod is short, so it is difficult for an adult to look through and align the finding scope. The tripod isn't extremely sturdy, so it's hard to get the image in the scope with the way it wiggles around. But once you do, it's fine as long as you don't touch it. It may be this way with all telescopes, but that is my main complaint.
