    I'm basically a little in general and have been a vintage toy collector since forever, and have noticed an affinity for my Fisher Price toys in littlespace because I like toys that do something mechanical in response to being played with (bus's eyes move, xylophone makes sound, old See n Say with a record and no batteries, etc.). So, now I'm curious: at what age do kids tend to grow out of Fisher Price type toys? Also, is it common for someone's deep littlespace age to be different from their general/lifestyle little age? I've been going with 8 but in littlespace I might consider myself closer to 5 but idk. I've only interacted closely with 3-year-olds past childhood.

    I think it depends on the toy. Some of them kids will have outgrown by kindergarten, but I remember being a little older than that and still playing with certain ones at day care and my brothers' great grandma's house. I would say most generally under 5 though.

     

    That makes sense to me. Some littles like myself don't identify with a certain littlespace age because it varies due to having interest in things from a much younger littlespace age to older, and sometimes even middle stuff. Littlespace is whatever you make of it, so if that's what works for you then that is totally okay and not weird.

    I never really understood the pressure to settle on one age... personally, every time I feel little space coming on, little me says out loud "I feel (insert age here) today!" and it's always different, still after a decade of regressing.

    Sometimes I'm 10! And I watch Spongebob or go outside and kick my soccer ball around and hunt bugs... Very often I'm 5, and I definitely love the Fisher Price kind of toys when I'm 5 or below. :heart: (I collect toys too. :D) Sometimes I feel like a baby, or even newborn; I don't talk as much, and mostly enjoy things that provide a sensory experience like a rattle, a fuzzy stuffy, squishy play-doh, a brightly colored mobile that makes music, etc.
    Every little age bracket offers a different kind of wonder so try to explore them all and see what fits.  :lol: 

    Here's a list of typical behavior for each age if it helps ( link )

    Thanks for your input.  I'm still figuring things out since I'm new.
