Tweens as Consumers in the Nordic Countries: Putting the Pieces Together
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Health, Social Work and Behavioural Sciences, School of Social Work.

Abstract [en]

Tweens, children between 7-12 years old, is a relative new focus in the expanding field of consumer research in the Nordic countries. The relation between consumption and tweens has been studied extensively during the past ten years. However, depending on method and focus, every study has its own limitations: research necessarily involves keeping within reasonable bounds in order to gain specific knowledge. Consequently, earlier research has been studying different pieces in the complex area that constitutes tweens in relation to consumption. This article aims to put the pieces together in order to gain a more composite picture of the area: focus is on consumption patterns among Nordic tweens. Earlier research from various disciplines was collected trough (1) databases, (2) reference lists in books and articles and (3) contact with researchers. The sample was composed of 50 Nordic studies, from 1990 to 2007. By putting the pieces together it is clear that tweens and consumption is a complex area; and that consumption, to a high degree, intertwines with everyday life for children.
