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 2 years of age.
I actually bought these as less of a toy and more as a prop for photos. I have used them once for that purpose, but it worked out really well because the family I was photographing has three young kids. As soon as I brought these out, their eyes grew wide with excitement! The blocks are perfect size for little hands and brightly are colored.
And that brings me to the ONLY thing I wished was different about these blocks. The colors. I wish there were more colors and more varied. I wrote out a word with 6 letters and 4 of those letters were the same color. Kinda boring. BUT... that is a very minor thing. The quality of the blocks has, so far, shown to be great!
Bought this for my 15 month old. I'll admit that it was smaller than I thought it would be but the blocks are actually a good size for her little hands. She's still young for it but it's good quality and durable so I know it will withstand the test of time.
