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 7 years of age.

We were playing chess on the first day, and already seeing the boys understand the game. The level one game approach is easy and stress free. We were already moving to the next level on day 2. Tough game, but the cards make it easy to learn.
My 6 year old and I saw this game while waiting in the lobby of a "math tutoring" center. My 6 year old who loves games wanted to play it, and I was reluctant because he is , well 6. But you cannot say no to this child so we tried out "Level 1". We both LOVED it. The game teaches real chess piece movement, real strategy, at a level that he can understand. I was blown away. I have not ventured into higher levels, but I am sure it just gradually reduces the dependence on the cards (which tells you which piece to move), till you are finally playing full blown chess. A 7 year old girl wanted to play while in the lobby. A 6 year old playing chess with a 7 yr old in the age of electronics? 5 stars for this game!! We play a game almost daily.

We have enjoyed playing this game with our daughter and she asks us constantly to play with her. My only complaint is for better clarity in the instructions for the learning part of the game. I'd recommend this to others for sure!
