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 4 years of age.
Good butterfly cage
Posted 1/1/2015 by ALLISON BURTON
We got this to house a monarch butterfly caterpillar that we found in our backyard. The cage is big enough to fit a few branches and a food supply, although it is a bit tight trying to fit that in and get your hands in to clean it out or move things around. It is easy to open and close with the zipper, but it would be really helpful if the top unzipped more than just half-way around. We have not ordered the caterpillars that come with the cage - we are waiting until warmer weather in the spring - so I can't comment on how good that part of the package is.
Overall, it was a great experience for my kids to be able to view the changing caterpillar easily from inside the cage, and for that I am very pleased with this item.
My rating of Butterfly Garden
Posted 9/16/2014 by Wilma Wilcox
I purchased this "habitat" for a friend. I raise anise swallowtail butterflies. They lay their eggs on my anise and then we have caterpillars. I remove the caterpillars when they are about an inch long and stick them in the habitat with plenty of anise. They will turn to a crystalis and then in about 12-14 days we have a beautiful butterfly. As soon as the wings are opened, we release them to the outdoors. I have sent many crystalis's to the nearby schools for observation. All the traveling caterpillars and crystalis's are moved in this habitat.
