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 5 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"For starters, I had to guide my son through this for introduction of the map, naming each state and pointing to it. To make it a little easier for him and not to overwhelming, I handed a state out, one by one, so he can look for just "one". In my case, my son would get too frustrated looking at all the pieces all together and would loose interest quickly."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Down Syndrome
"It may be easier to manipulate with fine motor skills if it were a knob puzzle- so that a child with special needs could pick up pieces more easily."

Wanted my 3 1/2yr old to learn where we live and other parts of the country that we explore. Puzzle has a lot if pieces (granted with so many states) but we keep them neatly in order and do the puzzle with her. The sounds are an added bonus bc she hear the state and Capitol which is very helpful
