43. So was my 16yo.
She outgrew it and is a very strong, independent young woman. She came home early last night because everyone was drinking at a guy's house and pairing off and she didn't want any part of that.

I'm really proud of her. She makes really good decisions that define who she is becoming.

My 10yo loves Disney Princess stuff. I suspect she'll out grow it as well.
