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 1 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Down Syndrome
"I purchased this toy for my one year old newly adopted granddaughter with Down Syndrome. Having been in an orphanage, she has had almost no access to toys until very recently. I felt the bright colors would interest her and the spinning edges would encourage her fine motor skill development. She likes it and as expected, has some difficulty holding on to it. With practice, I think it will be one tool to improve her fine motor skills as she has to grip the edges to keep playing with it."
It's lightweight, and a great size he can hold in either of his little hands or both. He likes to pull on the colored parts and inspect the shape and build, and when he gets to shaking it the bell in the center seems endlessly fascinating. We've brought it in the car and he keeps it close.
