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 3 years of age.
Fun for all ages

I bought this as a gift for my 3 year old. He loves to stack them and can do so simply. My older sons love to follow the more complex stacking options and be creative with their own stacking. Even the adults enjoy the challenge. It has been played with every day since his birthday. We did buy 2 sets to make the stacking more fun!
Great for all ages!

These block robots are unique, yet so easy to stack the first time, even for 3 and 4 year olds. I would consider ordering two sets so the adults can have more fun making larger stacking patterns:)
Added bonus- Fat Brain Toys price was less than half of the price of Amazon
Our 3year old grandson loved these robots. He was excited to see all the different ways he could stack them together and the colors are so bright.
I bought 2 sets and would highly recommend this to others.
One suggestion for Fat Brain would be to offer a larger package of these great toys.....maybe 20 in one package.
Review for Wood Stacking Robots
Posted 11/14/2011 by Kristine Ellson
This is a wonderful toy for limitless play. It was a gift for my 4yr. old grandson's birthday. Six children, boys and girls were crowded around him wanting to stack the robots, the oldest was eight. It comes with several idea formations , some were stacked in very unusual ways with just one robot at the base. The children were also making their own robot towers. I have decided to order another set for his younger brother so they can work with even more robots and taller formations. Of coarse it was fun to knock them over when you were done. Great toy with sturdy wood pieces!
