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 6 years of age.
My rating of FunSlides Carpet Skates
Posted 2/20/2013 by Ann H.
We purchased one pair earlier and loved it, but found we needed two sets so a friend could play simultaneously. We recently lost one of the original pair, so purchased TWO pairs, so a friend could play with her this time. Unfortunately this new carpet slide doesn't work at all the same... hardly slides at all. We now have two worthless sets. Very disappointing in comparison to the original purchase. It was a birthday gift and a complete dud!
Keep in mind, if carpet is smooth, these Carpet Skates will slick-slide right along, while heavy, dense plush carpet may impede speed. We assisted our customer promptly. Slide right in to the Returns & Exchanges Center for sure assistance.
I hoped my kids (ages 5 and 4) would love these, but they really haven't caught on to them. I thought maybe it was an age issue, but mom and dad tried on as well and found them to be pretty lame. They do not glide as easily as expected on our carpeted areas. It is difficult to sustain the sliding. Overpriced! Made of plastic and velcro, we had to assemble the velcro straps and foot cushions! Could probably find items around the house to make an equally not so fun homemade version.
Not carried away by FunSlides? Lower carpet may do the trick - or slide into the comfort of our Returns & Exchanges center. It's easy to switch direction for a refund or exchange with Fat Brain Toys.
