History of the Mandala:
Mandalas are Hindu and Buddhist pieces of art made of sand to aid in meditation.
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.
Great product-could have used instructions

I purchased this for my 3 year old granddaughter after seeing a Mandala exhibition at the Carlos Museum in Atlanta. She loved the exhibit and I wanted to encourage her interest. She can use this product, with help from me and she is patient and inspired by what she is creating. It took me some time to figure out how it worked. It's quite ingenuous with the little tool used to peel off the exact part of the picture where you place the sand with another little shovel. And when you shake the loose sand from the picture into the box, there's a hole in one corner of the box where you can shake down the sand back into it's container. I was concerned about it being really messy and we managed to contain most of the sand that we used.
