I'm a little confused about the whole tween thing. What are the ages that are considered tween? I've heard 9-12 adn 10-12. I have 10-year-old twins sons who will 11 on July 1st. Just wondering.

0-1 - Baby
1-4 - Toddler
Just in my opinion...

I've always considered tweens to be 10-12, when they become "double digits" but not quite teens.

That is very good Coma, I would have listed it exactly the same way.

I always read it as "twin teens". ie - twins who are in their teens!

Quoted form wikipedia..
"Tween has been used to describe children between the ages of 8 and 14, however most research defines a tween as a person between the ages of 8 and 12 years old (grades 3–6). Synonyms: preteen, tweenager, tweenie, Generation We, Generation Z
Tweens are in-between being a child and a teen. Tweens are children in the sense that they are not adolescents, but they differ from small children in that they are not primarily occupied with play."
