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.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Developmental Delay
"Developmental Delay due to the childe having brittle bone disease. Just recently put into a new cast on his leg, and this toy keeps him on his knees or tummy while he's having fun and working his muscles. No need to run or stand in order to enjoy this toy. Very active young man, and this toy provides a safe fun."
I gave it as a gift to a 3 year old and he loves it! I am a little worried that it may not last as long as I would like because of the movable parts that don't seem to be real strong. So far .... so good.
Smart Design, well made

I gave this toy to my 2 year old son for Christmas. It definately was in his top 2 for presents. He is currently into all things transportation so this was perfect. I like that the grooves for the cars are a common width so his favorite car (at least for that day) can ride along with the carrier. It seems easy to manipulate the carrier up and down and the construction is solid so I haven't found any "pinch" spots. My only constructive comment would be that the cars that came with the carrier are really basic. He seems to like to play with carrier and the cars he already has.
Overall, great toy!
