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 2 years of age.
Review of Bollie Kickball
Posted 5/30/2013 by Tara Grace
Now that the snow has melted I purchased the Melissa & Doug Bollie Kickball for outdoor play. I sit for my friend's 2 year old almost every weekend and am addicted to buying toys for her. Her face lit up when she first saw this adorable ball! She likes to play "catch." We roll it back and forth on the grass. Mostly she just enjoys carrying it around!
This brightly colored ball is durable and well made. I love the Bollie ladybug design! So cute and unique. Has the typical kickball texture so its easy to grip. Washes easily. It also comes inflated so one doesn't have to purchase a pump.
No need to look anywhere else for a great ball to play with outside. Recommend any of Melissa & Doug's Sunny Patch kickballs for years of play.
My child really enjoys her new ladybug ball. It's fun and colorful but also made of a thicker more durable rubber than the average backyard ball. This helps it withstand all the poking and prodding that my toddler subjects it to.
