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.
We purchased this gift as a request from the parents. The child just turned 1 and her face lights up when she listens to the sounds. She has had trouble with her speech and we are hoping this will help her sound out her letters.
really fun and educational toy

i bought this for my 2 year old's birthday and 2 weeks later she still plays with a couple times a day and has learned nearly all the alphabet from it. the letters are a good size and are raised from the board instead of having pegs to hold which could break. the voice is clear as could be expected from a toy, and includes an object starting with the letter placed - "B is for ball" etc.
the board is very well made but the letters need some extra quality control. a couple of them didn't properly fit and i had to carve bits off here and there so they would, and the bottom layer of ply had been chipped and split on many of them, so i had to file them smooth and re-glue the pieces that were falling off. the puzzle works on light-dependent resistors, so it's set off by any object placed on the board, not just the correct letter - not really a negative, just something to keep in mind. it doesn't include an on/off switch though which is very annoying, not sure why that most basic of functions has been left off.
I am a teacher,a reading Specialist,, and purchased this for my year old nephew. I was very pleased with the product manufacturing. The only change I perhaps might have made would be to add some kind of little knob for easier picking up of each letter!
