This Button Art Toy is cool for either girls or boys.. I got it for my autistic son that is 6.. He is non verbal but very bright and loves hands on. He loves this. It was easy for him to use and he even decided to make it a little different. This allows for a stretch to the imagination. It is well built and dsturdy and big enough that I don't worry about the putting in mouth thng. The colors fascinated him. This came with a lot of pegs and peg boards, so he has a variety to play with ..
