‘Tween’ no longer adequately defines the 9-12 year old, which is a unique demographic experiencing a time of huge transformation – cognitively, physically, social-emotionally. Insight Strategy Group has coined a new word that more accurately describes this group of kids in today’s world: Kiderati.

Kiderati is its own species. Kiderati kids use today’s technology and content to do the work of growing up. Media needs to be ‘right-sized’ for these kids – it can’t be someone else’s hand-me-downs. Media needs to make Kiderati kids laugh, feel smart, be kids, portray teen behavior, be edgier, and show hyper-talented role models.
