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.

Identified Special Needs Challenges: Cerebral Palsy
"I believe that this would be perfect for an autistic child or a child with cerebal palsy that is not as severe as our grand daughter's case. We think someone should invent the same exact toy with magnetic qualities so that children like our grand daughter can just put them together in different ways, rather than trying to link them together. Can also be used to teach the concept of round, ball, etc. and for the primary colors.
