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.
Product review of Block Buddies
Posted 7/15/2013 by Nancy Webb
I use toys in my play therapy practice. I have had Block Buddies for years and ordered more because pieces disappear over time. I find all of the fat brain toys very popular and enduring. I use the toys to bond with children, teach developmental skills and for assessment purposes.

Both my four year old son and my three year old daughter love this toy! Block buddies is challenging for my three year old. However, my four year old completes the puzzle with little effort yet still enjoys it. I wish I had bought this for him a year ago. It holds their attention for about 30 minutes at a time. I would recommend this toy.
My daughter loves puzzles and I thought I'd give her a different kind of puzzle.
We are still in the 'new' phase of playing with it, that's why she is still into it. We will see over time, that's why I don't give it 4 stars, I just don't know how long this will be an 'in' toy. My 27-month-old shows some interest in it as well, but that might just be because her big sister is playing with it. The quality though is great.
