1) A pre-teen, or an almost teen
is a child (primarily female) who is between the ages of 9 and 12 (Although can also include an immature 13 year old). These childern
like to pretend they are teenagers and thus, they try to act "cool."
2) A preteen girl is usually obsessed with glitter in all forms, which is then smeared on thier faces, in an attempt to look "cool" or "older." Usually makes them look stupid and/or like child prostitutes
3) Preteens often latch on to the current trend (thus making it uncool), like iPods.
4) Preteens often travel in groups of 4 - 5, screaming thier heads off at the stupidest things.
1) My nine year old sister considers herself a preteen, and insists on carrying her neon pink purse everywhere.
2) The girl had so much glitter on, I honestly thought she was a hoe!
3) The 10 year old yelled and begged until he got an iPod. She then uploaded her two Backstreet Boys albums, and promptly broke it after listening to "I Want it That Way"
4) The group of preteens screamed uncontroably as one did something stupid.
