Slightly heavy. 3 years and up is accurate
on September 26, 2016
Bought this as an activity for my 1.5 year old on a trip, as I was looking forward to the hand-eye coordination that was required. Usually toys that are for age ranges more than a year older than my child, I try anyway, but do believe that she will benefit more from this in a year or so. To use the magnetic wand for the balls, it does take a little finesse, so it can be frustrating for a little kid. I really like the concept, and I will bring it around more frequently in the upcoming months.
It is a little heavy, so it adds some weight to your activity bag. The size is fairly large making it slightly difficult for lap play especially with the weight, but it is manageable.
The clear plexiglass seems to have a "trail" from the balls moving against it on the back side. This bothers my Type A personality, but my child doesn't seem to mind.
I'd buy this again, but wait until a kid was 2 or older for sure. I am excited to use this for more counting activities and as she can manage the size/weight of it better.
