Cards. For ages 9+ only.
On Sunday, I attended the NBA All-Star Game in Houston. Upon entering the arena for the game, we were handed a pack of Panini Prism NBA cards. Cool! I wish more stadiums did this. I saw a ton of kids trying to grab more than one pack.
I ended up with two packs. One pack I'm going to put away for my kid to open one day. I'm sending the other pack to a friend.
Something struck me as odd when looking over the package. Look in the top right. "For ages 9+". Really? You should be a third grader to "play" with cards? Is it because they have sharp corners? I actually find cards to be very educational. I was looking at stats on the back and asking what each meant well before the age of nine.
Now, look at at 2013 Topps. The wrapper says "For ages 6+". I wonder why Panini thinks their product is only for a more mature audience?
