My youngest, who I mentioned above, is 5 and eldest is 7. They've both recently started watching CBBC more than Cbeebies, but probably my youngest is doing that because he's led by my eldest. I would suspect that the target age for the channel is more like 7 or 8 to 11 or 12..?
That sounds about right. Cbeebies is meant for kids 6 and under, and CBBC is for kids aged 6-12. And it doesn't surprise me that a 5 year old liked Unleashed more than an 11 year old. The show's target audience is probably 6-9, same as Beano itself.
Dennis, by the way, is supposed to be 10. So "turned into a tweenager" doesn't make sense. I looked it up, that word just means kids aged 10 to 12. Which he always has been.
