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.

"The Tangle Toy will help my son utilize both hands during play, which right now he only really uses his left hand. We also use the Bilibo toy to help my son with his spatial recognition and play. The Bilibo is good to let him sit in, and then drag him around the room this way he uses his core muscles to keep from falling out of the seat. We are using it as a way for him to stand on it and work on his balance, and I see us using it interactively with other toys as he gets bigger to run them underneath and around his Bilibo to incorporate it into his play. He is (actual age) 29 months old, but was born at 25 weeks, so he should be 26 months old. He is doing great for the most part, but has some developmental delays and it appears he may have some minor CP. "

Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism,
Sensory Integration Disorder,
Speech & Language Delay
"This individual does not like to be touched but seeks out items that are visually and tactile inviting to him. He has to have something in his hands at all time. By giving this to him, he is less likely to play with the seatbelt on his wheelchair. He has broken his nose several times by rocking in the wheelchair and unlocking his seatbelt. We are therefore encouraging him to use his hands in a more beneficial way."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Aspergers,
Sensory Integration Disorder
"Entertains while waiting in line. Great for sensory intergration disorder--has a comfortable feel. My sitter felt it was good for her wrists, as she has carpel tunnel-- It helps strengthen them and losen them up.
I bought this item for my son who has autism. I was hoping he would use it as a "fidget" item but so far he hasn't appeared interested in it. However, my nuerotypical son loved it and played with it. I guess I need to encourage my autistic son and show him how it can be used.
This was purchased for my 9 year old son who has a lot of trouble staying focused in class. He has not yet used it at school, but the few times he's used it at home it seems to work by keeping his hands busy. I will update my review in 30 days after he's used it at school for a few weeks.
