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.

"We had a tornado tube in our classroom. My student remarked often that watching it "calms me down". I bought the tube kit from Fat Brain so that he could continue the benfit at home this summer."
This is a fun product and was a great addition to our homeschool. Who knew two soda bottles could be so much fun? I would have given it 5 stars but for the fact that upon my first two attempts at using it water leaked out. This was made worse by the fact that we adding ample blue food coloring to our water. You have to get the bottles attached to the Tornado Tube perfectly for it to not leak. Once I got it just right no more leaking. It has survived a 2 year old and 5 year old. Again, you have to have it attached absolutely perfectly for it not to leak. The third try was a charm for us.
Stocking Stuffer for Xmas, not given yet. Although I shook it to see how it worked. I found it simple and interesting. After a few times with it, I think my grandchild will put it down and play with it infrequently.
