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 7 years of age.

"The obvious spinning quality to the rattleback rock is what my son enjoys. I like it because he can easily spin it, and I can show him how it spins the opposite way than I originally spun it. We can spin it on different surfaces (table, floor, on a hardcover book) and he likes watching it spin and looking at the color of it too. And his siblings can spin it with him and enjoy it with him in that way."

It's really cool at first, but then (as with just about anything) the novelty wears off. It becomes something that the kids will want to show to friends for a while, then move. I'm still glad that we bought it. It does make the kids curious and wonder - makes them ask questions, and that's what we want.
