"Tween" is a word coined by marketers to better target our kids for advertising and influencing them to buy stuff and/or nag their parents to buy stuff. And to get them to "aspire" to the stuff that is marketed to teenagers, and to get young kids (preschoolers and toddlers even) to "aspire" to the stuff marketed to "tweens."
Developmentally speaking, 8 and 9 year olds are not "preteens" but are still just plain children. They have different issues than 4 year olds for sure, but they're not really mini teenagers.
