My five children ages 3, 5, 7, 10, and 13 all watched and participated in the exercises provided through the DVD. Most of them liked the exercises on the DVD, my oldest liked the wind down the best. Since our living room is small, it was difficult for them to do some of the exercises because, they didn't have a lot of room to spread out and kept bumping into each other. In order for us to use this DVD we will have to have the little ones use it and then the older ones to solve the space problem.
