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 6 years of age.
A little disappointing but still entertaining
Posted 1/1/2013 by Thomas Lorenz
I bought this for my ten year old son who saw it in a catalog. While the legs move, the toy is actually propelled by 2 wheels on the underside of the body. The legs just move up and down. While this disappointed me a little, it doesn't seem to affect how much it's played with. All the kids in the house (4 to 18) play with it. Also, the remote control does not have very much range; it needs to be within a few feet of the spider to work consistently.
Review for Remote Controlled Tarantula
Posted 12/24/2012 by Linda Plieskatt
I am very dissatisfied with this product. It does not have big enough wheels on it to move well on even the lowest pile of carpet. Also even on the hard floor, it does not operate well. Too sluggish. I played with it a little the first day i got it, and haven't touched it since. I don't know how to send it back since it was hard to remove from the packaging, and there is no way I'm going to be able to get it back in there like it was. I hope you will respond to my need to ship it back for a refund. One last note: It does not feel life like as described.
