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.

"Some children will need supervision, especially with painting the project. Tell them something about the project. My grandson can tell me the names of the presidents and where Mt. Rushmore is. Kids enjoy listening to the stories."
This was purchased for a school project. We thought it was fun to mix and pour the casting material. The project turned out beautiful. We wish that it had been a little thicker, but it will work great for our purpose. The disappointing side was when we went to paint it black there was no black paint. We were given the primary colors red,
green, yellow and blue. Luckily I had black and white so we were able to paint it without having to purchase paint.
The kit was purchased to be used as a center piece of a socal studies project for 4th grade.
The instructions came with nice background information about the real monument and more importantly easy to understand instructions on how to prepare and mold the piece. After unmolding the cast, I was really please with the detail in the cast.
It would have been nice to find the makings for a grey paint or wash for the casting in with the paint choices. Forunately we do other crafts and have a good selection of paints to finish the project.

This was for a school project and she just turned it in today. It was very easy to make, the mold and mixing was great. I wasnt positively sure of how much water to put into it cause it just says 3 parts material to 1 part water. But it was very nice and turned out great and thanks for telling us to paint it black and then mix white and black to make gray. I hope she gets a good grade on her project. I thought it was easy and very well made. Thank you.
Great for school project

We bought this for my 9 year olds school project on South Dakota. In the previous reviews, I read that it was small which is exactly what we needed. It fits perfectly on our foam state. The only thing I will say is it is very thin, so now instead of standing it up on the foam we have to lay it flat because otherwise it will be knocked over. I'm really glad we got it though. And when mixing we got confused because the instructions say 1 part water to 3 parts mixture. Well they give you 2 cups of mixture and we had to figure out what 1/3 of 2 cups was. And if you make the whole mixture you will have extras to be discarded. We just added 1/3 cup of water twice for the full 2 cups of mixture. Hope this helps someone else.

It was for my 9-year old's school project where she had to build a U.S. Monument. The kit was nice but too small... so we built Mr. Rushmore out of Rice Krispie Treats then melted some chocolate chips and poured them into the kit's tray and made some candy bars for her classmates and teacher.
