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 0 years of age.
Good for babies when they're ready to grasp things

The set of toys is very well-made, and is high-quality. My five-month-old likes to gaze at it and try to grasp for it. In about a month she'll be able to grasp and hold onto it by herself so for now we mostly use it to interact with her ourselves or to place with her on her mat to look at it and try to reach at.
5 month old loves them!

Our daughter loves these toys. She cannot quite pick them up yet but she enjoys pushing them around. She started sitting up a few weeks ago and these are great for setting in her lap where she can try to manipulate them.
Review of Wimmer Ferguson Mind-Shapes
Posted 11/25/2012 by Erica Dobson
We use these to help with "tummy time". Placed in front of our son they work as incentive to reach out and keep his head up... He still seems to be attracted to bold black and white patterns and enjoys the four sided (triangle) shaped toy the most. I think he prefers that one because it is the easiest one for him to hold (and therefor put in his mouth!).
It is more an exploration toy as there isn't much challenge to them, but they do interest him and keep him occupied.
