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 8 years of age.

Identified Special Needs Challenges: ADD/ADHD
"This Erector Set provides my son an opportunity to exercise concentration and focus, for extended periods on a detailed set of instructions and tasks. This led to interim reward plateaus, the ultimate reward of project completion, and a self-manufactured toy."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: ADD/ADHD,
"Our little guy also has a seizure disorder. He loves playing with an Erector set - this is his second set. He mostly creates his own designs, but then doesn't want to disassemble them. We'll probably be purchasing a third set before much longer. This little boy was totally shut down when he joined our family at age 27 months. He tested in the 14-month old range. He is in a regular third grade classroom now with minimal assistance. Erector sets are so good for developing dexterity, creative imagination. Also, they are so sturdy - they are hard to break."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Aspergers
"Like all -Aspie Kids, once my daughter gets hooked on something, that is it. She was doing Legos, and became frustrated with their problems with movement. They fall apart, but moving isn't what Legos were designed for. So, we have evolved to Erector. I went ahead and bought two sets, one that has a case, the other has a driver. I wanted the driver because I knew the nuts and bolts were small. My daughter has the typical fine motor skills of an aspie - that is to say, none."
I purchased the erector set for my 11 year old grandson. I was disappointed with the set. The instructions were difficult to read and my grandson wouldn't even attempt them. I don't think this will be a toy he goes to when he wants something to do. My grandson loves Legos and builds them all the time, so thought this would be a nice change for him but it didn't turn out that way.
