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.

"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."
Information about USA Map Sound Puzzle
Posted 1/28/2013 by Sarah Cascini
This gift was for a 6 year old girl's birthday. She loved the map of the U.S. When she was asked what it was she said the United States of America. She was able to figure out the states by the shapes. However, we grownups, thought it would be more beneficial if the names of the states were printed on the base of the state above the capital. Her Dad is going to use a marker to add the name of the state. Just an idea that maybe they can put into the next production. Then there were a coupld of pieces that didn't have a state on them, was not marked. We had to wait until the end to figure out where they went. One was for DE, MD, and another state that was combined in the piece of the puzzle. It is going to help her learn her states and capitals and give her an advantage in school.
Product review of USA Map Sound Puzzle
Posted 1/6/2013 by Mary
This is a typical Melissa & Doug high quality puzzle - sturdy pieces and great colors. We never took it out of the packaging however, and decided to take it back and exchange it for a larger puzzle where each state is a different piece (this puzzle had several states on one puzzle piece) and the new puzzle also includes the Canadian provinces. If you are interested in a basic USA board puzzle, this would be great; we just wanted something a little more advanced.
