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 0 years of age.
4M Hovercraft Review
Posted 1/10/2014 by Jan Bessler
Purchased as birthday gift for my 9-year-old grandson. Could assemble most of it himself, but the plastic hover material was a little tricky, and he needed assistance. Worked well on smooth flooring, and also worked on carpet, which was a pleasant surprise!
I bought this product for both of my sons ages 8 and 10 because they both love science. Adult assistance is needed to put it together but the instructions were easy to follow. The finished hovercraft works pretty well on carpet and tile. It is rather fragile and needs to be handled carefully. They enjoy racing them down the hall.
My 11 year old son had no trouble tackling this cool project. He put it together in less than an hour. We were all amazed at how well it hovered around the kitchen table, but give it some room-- like down a long hallway-- and it really scoots. Now he is aspiring to make a life-sized prototype for him to ride. Yikes!! :)
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
