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.
This was a Christmas gift for our 10yr old grand daughter. She has always loved to write original stories, so much so, that she wants to be an author when she is older. She was super excited to receive this as a gift and is already planning her story and illustrations. Can't wait to see her hardcover book!
This was an 8th birthday gift for our granddaughter, who's very much enjoyed drawing since she was a toddler, and who began writing original stories as soon as she began to read/spell. She was ecstatic when she opened IlluStory and realized that the end-product will be a hard-back book that she can keep forever. She's currently engrossed in planning the story and illustrations she'll use.
Bought this for my 7 yr. old granddaughter and she loved it! This is something that she will keep and treasure for a long time! The family cannot wait to receive their copies of her novel! What a great idea! Wish there were more items like this!
Really Great Idea!
