I did google this question online but I couldn't find any answers.

I am wanting to know what age group Tinkerbell is aimed at.  My 5 year old loves it, but my friend's DD is way past that.

Just asking as we have alot of girls birthday parties coming up and I want to know what is age appropriate.  I know what my kids like but have no idea about other kids!

My daughters are 7 and 5 and they both love the Tinkerbell movies. The 5 year old more so, but the 7 year old still chooses to watch her Tinkerbell DVD a lot, picking it over other movies.

DD loved them at 6/7. She's grown out of them now at nearly 8.

Totally depends on the child.  

My twins being a prime example. They are turning 9 yrs soon. DD2 still absolutely loves tinkerbell and I couldn't see that changing anytime soon. She still loves a lot of youngish things. While DD3 would watch it with DD2 but is really 8 going on 19. Lol

I agree depends on the child. My DD is turning 9 next month and she still loves them and gets excited when she knows a new one is out, but her friends think they are babyish so she keeps it on the down low that she likes them.

What about an older movie? That way a lot of them wont have seen it. My kids have recently watched The Wizard of Oz and they love it.

my son was watching them at 2.5 years old - he is very amused by Bubbles and Clank.

Agree with the 5/6 age group - my 5.5 y/o completely adores Tinkerbell, but her 9 y/o friend thinks they are for "little kids"!

I must have weird kids because my 8yo daughter loved it. So did my 10yo son and his friend who I reluctantly dragged along ninja.gif

My DD12 would quite happily watch it alone, if however I mentioned it in front of her friends she would pretend it was "babyish".

Yes depends on the child. Miss 7 loves Tinkerbell but I know another 7 year old who is way past it.

For older movies my girls love the Whizzed of Oz, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

I was only wondering about age groups for younger-type shows this morning. I, at 35, would much rather watch a Tinkerbell movie than a Wimpy kid movie so don't really understand why kids 'grow out of' cartoon type shows.

I'd say that 5-6 would be the target audience, but my 8yo wants to see it as well.

DD2 has been pretty into Tinkerbell movies for about a year, but moreso as she approaches 5. She loved the new movie and went to see it at the movies twice rolleyes.gif She has my dad wrapped around her little finger!

DH and I took our 3.5yr old to see the latest Tinkerbelll movie.  We fought over who had to take her to the toilet half-way through as neither of us wanted to miss any.  So I'd say 30-40yrs old? ph34r.gif
