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.

"Puzzles with nature, and wildlife scenes appreciated. Brain injury wise, our son maintained his long term memory. He was 16 at the time of his accident.
These puzzles work out well for Jeff. He has initiation deficit. Very few things he's able to stick with. Jeff will actually request to make a puzzle. They're easy for him to put together on our kitchen table. He's learning from them. The 1st time he makes a new one...help is needed. Afterwards, he's slowly able to figure them out by himself. "
fantastic for so many kinds of learning

this is just great for 2 year olds. i bought it for my 2 year old's birthday, and it's still the first thing she goes to whenever we come home. so far she's learned a couple of the names, and asks about the others so she'll remember those before long too. so far she's gotten the idea of rotating pieces to make them fit, and is beginning to understanding about finding the right place for each piece too.
the design is appealing, size is just right for the age group, the piece are strong enough to resist being stood on over carpet (though they're made of thick, good quality cardboard, not ply, so there'd be a limit to that), and it's also scientifically accurate within a certain degree of artistic license, planets are basically the right colour and comparative size. it's also good that includes some moons, asteroids, nebulae, and a galaxy, promoting further inquisitiveness. labels also should mean there's more to learn as kids get older. at first i thought the perspective of seeing the earth over the moon wasn't a good idea, since kids are used to seeing the moon from the earth, but thinking about it maybe having these positions switched is good for introducing other perspectives - the idea that you could be up there looking down here.
