  • Yup. I figure I'm the best judge of what my kids are capable of. So I usually go with my own gut, instead of what others tell me, no matter how well intended the advice is.

  • only the mommy really knows whats good for their baby... other people can have ideas but unless they are with them everyday, they don't really know

  • Honestly, my son will be 4 in June and I think operation would be too easy for him. I wanted to get him the SpongeBob one though, not sure.

  • I think they only put age 6+ on there because of the small pieces in Operation. That would be my guess. I never really pay attention to the age guidelines. Go with what you feel.

  • When buying gifts trust your instincts, you know your kids better than anyone else. Listen to what your mind says not a box. My nephew is 6 and some of the games set at his age level are boring for him. Some kids are a little more mature and love a bit of a challenge.
