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.

"The board needs to be designed with contrasting colors that are appealing and easier to distinguish. (Note from Fat Brain Toys: We contacted the manufacturer with this colorful suggestion. We appreciate your feedback!)"
It was a blast from the past for me since I played with it as a child. Now that I'm a grandmother, I wanted to get it for one of my granddaughters who loves to play all kinds of games with me. It's wonderful fun time for us. Thank you.
Information about Parcheesi: Royal Edition

We're all in our high 80's, and played Parcheesi during WW2 and have been playing it to this day. Our old board was rapidly deteriorating, so the necessity for a new one was axiomatic. The new board and all the accessories are great.
A rating of Parcheesi: Royal Edition
Posted 10/6/2011 by D Duenas
The board colors lack contrast, they look faded and seem to blend into one another. A more colorful board with contrasting colors would make more appealing and easier to play and enjoy.
Our customer service staff brightens at the chance to serve you. We contacted the manufacturer with this recommendation to make the Parcheesi board colors more vivid. We sincerely appreciate honest feedback on products - as do others, including product manufacturers!
