Designs evolve as one child rides solo or many kids cooperatively ride
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: Autism
"Our son loved the colors and watching the cause and effect of trails being made where he rode his bike. Other kids in the neighborhood were interested in the trails and wanted to ride bikes with him to follow the trails he made, so it helped break down some of the social barriers my son has difficulty with.

A Kid's Review (7 & 9yo) - Definitely a Hit!
Posted 11/6/2014 by Alison W.
I bought two Chalktails (and extra chalk) as a gift for my 7 & 9yo neices. They were so excited about that they had to try it out the next day, despite cold temperatures and 35mph winds. ...and they LOVED it. They drew beautiful patterns all over the driveway until they got too cold. In the following week, they used it almost every day after school and then gave me this review: "I would make the chalk holder more sturdy." (It fell off when she went over a bump). "The chalk should stay together better. Sometimes big chunks fell off." "Oh, you also need a smooth driveway to see the lines. It doesn't work as well on the road, but on the smooth driveway it's great!" I should also mention that there is only ONE piece of chalk in the box. I bought 2 four-packs of chalk for each of them to go with it b/c it's a special size chalk that you will not find anywhere except where you buy this product. It was definitely a hit. :)
I got this for my niece and nephew for their birthday presents as they love riding their bikes. They love riding around making designs! The only disadvantage so far is that the chalk used is quite a bit bigger than normal buy-at-the-store chalk, and since it runs out quickly it is best to buy the extra pack of chalk too. I guess I will have to buy more chalk from here after that pack runs out because I don't know of anywhere else to get it that large.
Over all it's a wonderful toy, other than the chalk issue

Assembly was super easy and was hour of fun. Only problem was I did not plan for her enjoying it so much and it only came with 1 piece of chalk. The size and shape made it impossible to use any of her other chalk when that piece ran out. Also there was a bit of an issue of the chalk vibrating and sliding up so wouldn't work quite right but a rubber band on the tabs tightened that up and made for a quick fix.
