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 9 years of age.
Fun puzzles, age range is perfect.

We had a great time with the beginner level Analogy Challenges. My son was turning 7 at the time he worked through that book, and most were a little easy for him. We then got this book so that he'd be more challenged and also my 9 year old could enjoy them. This level is a little too hard for the younger one but perfect for my older one. These puzzles incorporate knowledge such as state capitals (Austin:_____ :: Boston: Massachusetts) that make it beyond the reach of a 1st grader, but just right for the 4th grader. Another example is _____:Wednesday :: January:March. I like how this level really broadens the whole perspective of analogies. Might even be a fun party game!

The progression of analogies is clear to my 9 and 11 year olds. They easily progressed throught this book adn we are odering the next level. After doing a mediocre job at standardized tests last year in this area, I think we are on the way to vast improvement.
