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.
Fun to do with Mom and has educational component

My daughter, who is 4, really loved making the lip gloss. The directions include how to talk about the changes in the substances going from a solid to a liquid back to solid. It also includes hints to talk about the five senses with the project. I would look for more by this company.
Makes a Great Party Favor

We gave these out at my 7 year old daughter's science party. It is easy to use and makes real lip balm. The only problem I noticed was it claims the lip balm tastes like cotton candy...ours had no flavor.
