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 5 years of age.
I had this game when I was young in the 80's when it was called "Run Yourself Ragged". It was my absolute favorite and i was delighted to find it had a new life with a new name so many years later. I got it for my 5 year old and it quickly turned to tears and frustration. I knew full well going in that 5 years old is not the ideal age for this game so i wasn't too surprised when I had to box it and put it away for what I suspect will be a few years. That says nothing of the quality of the game or any misleading advertising.....i was simply too anxious to purchase this and my kids are just too small.
That being said, I still love this game and am determined to keep it until my kids can enjoy it. After playing the new version, Im not sure how it could be of use to a child much younger than 8ish. It takes great coordination, timing and concentration that younger kids just don't have. Racing against the clock was out of the question. Again, my bad.
The only drawback i found that was game specific (not related to me buying it for too young of children) was that it seemed a little clicky clacky rickety...not as solid as the original thirty years ago. It took a few times of me playing it through to kind of break in the controls so they worked a little more fluidly.
