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 10 years of age.
Fun way to sharpen the brain

These cards are great to leave around the house, enabling one to pick 'em up anytime and give the ol' noggin a quick workout. Cards range from simple enough for the youngest kids to difficult enough to spur the imagination and problem-solving skills of adults.
My rating of Visual Brainstorms

We purchased this game for our 9 year old grandson's birthday. His first reaction when he opened the gift was to set it aside as he was hoping for a more active toy or a video game. Later, when we played the game, he found he could figure out many of the puzzles himself or with the help of his partner. The mind games encouraged us all to use our brains. Most telling was his comment that this is really a fun toy.
The scenarios on each card are both fun & challenging. I like the fact the cards progress in level of difficulty. They encourage "thinking outside of the box" & really engage reasoning skills. They also add a laugh of two along the way.
