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 1 years of age.
My rating of Oval Xylophone

We gave this to our one year old grandson, thinking he'd probably use it when he's a little older. To our surprise he played with it on Christmas morning. He noticed the correct way to hold the mallet by watching us play it and tried to hit each note separately. Not once did he just randomly bang on it! A great start to his musical life.
Fun, but not a tonal instrument

This xylophone isn't technically a xylophone, in the fact that it isn't tuned to any particular notes. While the longer bars are lower in tone than the short ones, it doesn't follow any kind of scale. It could never be used to play even a simple melody. That being said, it's a fun percussion instrument anyway. My daughter loves clunking on the bars and gnawing on the drumstick part.
True, the xylophone isn't technically a xylophone, and a sandbox is not technically a beach. It's a toy with limitations. But - as our customer mentioned, for durability, age-appropriateness, and safety, it's pretty good stuff. We offered our customer a return. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.)

My grandson loves the Xylophone. It is colorful and I love the fact that when my grandson plays with the xylophone it is not overly noisy. I do have one complaint though. The stick for the xylophone is a bit unsafe. It is actually two parts. The head of the stick is glued to the stick itself. It is a bit loose and I can see that it could come off. The toy would be much safer if the stick were one piece.
Stick with us - we're here to help. We offered our customer a replacement for the defective xylophone mallet. If any Fat Brain Toy doesn't strike you as ideal, most certainly let us know. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.)
