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
"In addition to having the child assemble the puzzles, I labeled each of the 4 sections of the box to match the symbols on each of the 4 puzzle pieces. It would be nice to have the picture of the assembled puzzles on the bottom of the box labeled with their appropriate symbols. Sorting: I had the child sort all the pieces by symbol type. Counting: count the number of pieces for each symbol type. Return to proper location: place the sorted pieces into the appropriate labeled boxes."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism,
Sensory Integration Disorder,
Speech & Language Delay
"I use this toy with my son as such: I take out the pieces he is going to use and close the box. We work on the puzzle together in order to avoid scattering of the additional pieces which is what occurs most times with child with autism or SID. They get overwhelmed with so many pieces and begin to loose focus and scatter them all over the play area never accomplishing the goal of finishing the puzzle."
I got this for my 3 y/o son who is obsessed with dinosaurs and has recently displayed an interest in puzzles. We had a Halloween floor puzzle that he needed a bit of help completing so I decided to give these a try since they were smaller in size I thought that he might be able to complete these on his own and he is! He really enjoys this puzzle set. I do not leave it out but keep it tucked away for his toy rotation but I find him asking for this set each day. Very happy with it.

i don't find reviews that rate everything 5 stars to be completely forthright, and so i never give 5 stars myself without proper all-round reasons.
the 4 puzzles are cleverly designed, different colors and kind of dinosaur make the 4 distinguishable for 2-3 year olds, providing them with an extra challenge in the process. the pieces are just the right size for the age group, and the 3x4=12 pieces for each makes them puzzles the can work out on their own. the box is well constructed from ply, no rough edges on mine, and the pieces are ply too, a big improvement from the cardboard usual to puzzles even for young children, making this i think the first toy i can honestly say could withstand use and wear to last more than a generation.
the only con i can come up with, and it really is reaching, is that on the triceratops puzzle there are tufts of grass, which is an error since grasses didn't exist until after dinosaurs were extinct.
My son has enjoyed this puzzle set. He just turned three and still needs a little help doing the puzzle but LOVES all the dinosaur pictures once the puzzle is completed. I love that the pieces are wooded and help to make it easier for the pieces to stay together. The only downside is the puzzle is smaller than the flat surface provided on top of the storage container. As my boy gets older I don't think this will be a problem but right now it is a little challenging that the corners pieces don't all go into the corners. Overall it's a great set and I love that they come in a container that stores all the pieces!
