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.

We gave this gift to our Godson for his first birthday, and it was a HUGE hit. He kept going back to it to play with, even after opening other gifts...it had his attention. It was also very appealing to other party guests of all ages...1-9 year olds alike all wanted a turn to try it out! Definitely appeals to a wide range of kids and is a well made, sturdy toy that appears to be substantial enough to endure a lot of years of play! Definitely recommend this product.
(Not to mention, the entire buying experience and lightning fast shipping were delightful!)
My son received the Melissa and Doug car carrier for his birthday when he was 2 or 3 years old and played with it all the time. It was also a favorite choice for any boy that came over to our house to play. Since then, it has become a favorite gift item for any baby boy or birthday boy that we know. The design is simple and yet interesting to young boys...the carrier part collapses down so you can drive the cars up on the ramps and then raise the ramps once you have everything loaded the way you want. The ramps are also grooved so the cars stay on them once they're loaded. I wouldn't plan to use this carrier for HotWheels or other kinds of cars...just the cars it comes with. In terms of age appropriateness, my son who is now 5 would still play with it; but he's more interested in bigger and fancier cars now.
