I purchased this for my twin granddaughters' 8th birthday. It came a week later and my daughter told me that within a few days, one of the twins had every rhyme memorized! They aren't too good at jumping rope yet, but they will be ready for group fun when they get into it! In a day when kids don't exercise enough, having the rhymes can be great fun for multiple kids to participate in good healthy exercise!
