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.

"This was easy to use with hand-over-hand assist for placement of pieces. The snaps were easy to push on. The switches are also easy with hand-over-hand. My son really enjoyed the effect he could have by just pushing a switch!"
I bought this for our grandson because my husband is an electrical contractor. He wanted to be able to teach our grandson some things about what he does for work. They are both enjoying it. It's fun learning!
My nephew's favorite toy this year!

Bought this for an 8 year old boy. I've heard more than once, and from more than one family member, that this is his overall favorite toy he received this year! It was a big hit! He loves playing with it as does his dad and grandpa! Great gift to get the generations interacting together!
Makes learning fun!

We got this for our 8 year old grandson for Christmas. He and his father spent a few minutes looking at the connections and how they work, then the 'light bulb' clicked and he began putting together combinations, some from the book and others he dreamed up. He opened other toys but kept going back to the Snap Circuits set. It was refreshing to see him reasoning out how to get several components, such as light and sound, to work together. This toy encourages thought and the rewarding feelings of successfully finding solutions. "Look, Dad! I did it!"
