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 6 years of age.
We started with the Tantrix 10 tile set. My 5 year old mastered this quickly, and we bought a 2nd set. She soon had this mastered to we bought the Game Pack. I would HIGHLY recommend it. It adapts well in difficulty from 5 years old, all the way up to me at 42 years old.
Favorite game of the year!

The kids went to bed. Me and my husband ended up playing this to the wee hours of the morning. The directions were very confusing, but once we started to get the hang of it, it made sense. A video tutorial accessible at a link would have been great.
