Why It’s Fun
Tynies are an affordable collectible and will definitely appeal to kids who love tiny collectibles. There are so many Tynies to choose from that your child is sure to find at least one that he or she likes.
Who It’s For
Tynies are for ages 8 and up. Because of their small size, Tynies should definitely be kept out of the reach of children under the age of 4.
