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 0 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"My niece, who is nine and autistic, has always been fascinated with magnets and round shapes like marbles. So I ordered a second set just for her. She likes how when they are rolled they will "find" each other! Makes her laugh, which is what I'm after for her."
Fun for young kids

I bought a 10 of these for my 5-6 yr old to play with.
While they are entertaining and they do some cool things, as mentioned in other reviews, the magnets could be stronger.
It would be nice if you could actually pick up a marble with another.

This product was used to demonstrate the gravitational pull of the sun during the formation of the solar system. I used it in combination with bbs, iron filings and the smaller marbles in pie plates. The students loved how the iron filings just hung like beards on the jumbo magnetic marbles and clean up was quite easy because the jumbo magnets easily gathered the filings and bbs and let go of them with little effort. They were just what I was looking for.
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
magnetic marbles, jumbo marbles,
