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 3 years of age.
Decent idea, but they prefer their crayons
I had high hopes for these. I planned to use them to demonstrate that pictures are made up of a combination of shapes, have the kids (ages 5 & 3 1/2) make up pictures using these pieces, and then try drawing their creations on paper. The kids were excited to try it out. Unfortunately, the pieces are tiny, so they had difficulty manipulating them, and they don't stick well to the surface that is included for that purpose. We had better luck using a glass cake pan. Once they finally got rolling with creating pictures, they got disgruntled because there weren't enough pieces to do what they had in mind. Some of the shapes (particularly the arcs and irregular triangles) weren't fitting well into their schemes. They would have preferred more regular or symmetrical shapes. Now these pieces sit, mostly unused, in the bottom of a sandwich baggie. On the bright side, I was able to use these to demonstrate how to draw flowers and houses using shapes, and once the kids started drawing flowers and houses, they kept going. So these indirectly did spark a great interest in art that has continued over the past several months.
My rating of Eric Carle Basic Shapes Colorforms Play Set
Posted 6/7/2012 by Barbara J Behrens
I was a bit disappointed because there was only one page of stickers. I expected more.
They don't stick very well but then I remember them as a child and they didn't either so I guess it is just the product.
It was okay but I wouldn't buy them again.
