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 this for my second grade classroom. The reason it has not been touched is that the ants did not come with the ant farm as I had expected. They needed to be ordered separately. I found this out AFTER the ant farms arrived, so now I have empty ant farms, and my ant unit is getting closer and closer to an end without ants for kids to observe. The farm itself looks like a good product, but without the ants it is meaningless. Also, I had to use a separate coupon to buy the ants for each ant farm. The coupon came with the ant farm, so it seems to me that you HAVE to order the ant farm and wait for it to be delivered before purchasing the ants (in separate orders for each farm, with a separate shipping fee of $5 per ant vial). In summary, beware that this product takes literally weeks to assemble fully.
As noted, the ants for this ant farm must be shipped separately. Ants are live animals, and they do not live within our warehouse facility. We have some incredibly hardworking worker bees, but no ants...
