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 5 years of age.

Keeps them busy in the car

Keeps them busy on long car trips. I played with these when I was a kid. I'm happy to see that they are still around. My kids like making the pattern on the card, but also like to create their own patterns.
A rating of Magnetic Travel Tangoes
Posted 3/31/2012 by sandra corry
The toy is very challenging, creative and enjoyable to play with. My grandson who is 6 enjoyed it. And having the 'guide' on the back page of each puzzle was very helpful to completing all the puzzles. In general I thought it was a great toy except I am not sure the magnets are strong enough. We did use it for travel on a plane and a couple of times even though all the magnets were securely placed in the middle of the tablet, when he would close it up to move, one would fall out. Luckily both times we saw it drop and were able to find it because otherwise the toy would be useless. You cannot do the designs without all 7 pieces.
Product review of Magnetic Travel Tangoes
Idea is great. He is 6 and did enjoy trying to recreate the figures and the clues on the back of the puzzle are very helpful. But not sure the magnets are always secure. Several times, while we were traveling, even tho the pieces were on the magnetic surface, when he would close the booklet and pick it up to move, a piece would fall out onto the ground 30-40% of the time. And if we hadn't noticed that and found the piece, the puzzle would have been useless. If you don't have the requisite 7 pieces, you cannot make the designs.
I bought this for a long (11 hour) car trip for my 5 year old son. He has the Mighty Minds game at home, so this looked like a more challenging version of that toy....and it certainly is. My son really enjoys brainteasers and at first this was a little difficult for him to figure out, but once he got the hang of it he was quietly entertained in the car for a couple hours. Excellent travel toy.
