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 4 years of age.

"Our kiddos have just loved the ease and seeming simplicity of this toy. They have used it with their stuffed animals as a train, played store, created ice cream cones, etc. GREAT for creativity and there are no rules for playing with these. The magnets in them are great ... they really stick. They are so good. We know many Children's Museums use them."
The following "cloud" is a semantic representation of our customers' general impression of Magna-Tiles Clear Colors 100 pc Set. The larger the text, the more frequently that term is used to describe it.
This is an excellent toy. My 2 year old daughter plays with these tiles at her Montessori preschool and her teacher said she always gravitates toward it. So, we tried it out at home and see the same result. We have the tiles on our coffee table and she is constantly building and arranging them. Since they are magnetic they can guide her basic building some of the time. She enjoys making towers but also just creating different patterns and designs with the tiles. It is great to watch her fit the pieces together to create. Would recommend this wholeheartedly.

We have a 9 year old boy and 4 year old daughter. It is one of the few toys they ever play with together. We will be buying more as they fight over the one set we have. There are not quite enough pieces to satisfy both their building needs. I am so happy to have found a toy they will play with for years to come. Even my 17 year old nephew played with them!

As an educator, I have seen children engaged with Magna-Tiles in early childhood classrooms for years. At home, I couldn't wait to setup our own "light table" (a.k.a. my old overhead projector) and get some Magna-Tiles for our toddler. She's been loving them since opening her first set on her second birthday; she's now almost three. Children of all ages who visit our home are immediately drawn to the light table and Magna-Tiles and play with them, while interacting with each other, for long periods of time! Our daughter loves them so much, she couldn't wait to tell Santa, "I need more square blocks that shine so I can build a taller house!" Educational and entertaining!
