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 8 years of age.
I bought 3 of these for stocking stuffers. As my children have not received them yet, I can only anticipate their play value. We've had a cheap plastic version in the past and my oldest child really liked it. I really like the quality of these puzzles -- a good value for the money!
Years ago I bought the Fifteen Puzzle for myself as a little brain teaser to keep around for those spare moments when you want a little challenge. I keep mine in the kitchen and do the puzzle when I have something in the oven, I'm waiting for the microwave, taking a break, etc. It's fun to do the puzzle and to try to better your time and it's particularly relaxing after a lot of mental work.
Over the years, I've noticed that any time I have people over and they end up in the kitchen (which they always do), everyone picks up the puzzle and tries to do it. It's so popular people have to take turns.
Inspired by this, I recently bought two puzzles as gifts for my younger brother and sister's birthdays. I teased them that at their age (50) they could use the mental stimulation. What I really liked, though, is that it's a fun little puzzle you can put in your pocket and take anywhere and pull out when you want a little mental relaxation.
Well, that's my review of the Fifteen Puzzle. It's a neat, well-made little puzzle that I'm sure is very good for hand-eye-brain coordination. It's also just plain fun.
