DD 10 just told me she cried after the last episode. Is it a very niche thing? She doesn't have any female friends who like it or any of its variants. I'd love her to have a friend Who has similar likes.

Yes my 11yo ds loves gravity falls.

I don't think he's seen the last episode yet, but has spent the whole weekend making dippers journal.

I've not heard of this,is it suitable for an 8 year old?
He we yawn is engrossed with Troop at the moment but only a few episodes left.

my 10 year old child is fascinated by it as are his school mates -most of them are 9, he's the youngest-. I have watched almost every episode with him, it's a bit disturbing and dark at times. when weirdmaggedon starts it gets properly creepy, I just wanted to turn the bloody thing off but didn't know what to say. I thought it would make it worse if I said something. oh, he started waking up in the middle of the night -4 out of 7 a week roughly- and not wanting to be alone in a room by around the time he started watching gf... when he wakes up he says he's thirsty... yeah right..
I think it's scary because it tackles not only nightmarish other dimensional stuff -that pyramid bill is a mean bastard- and weird things -zombies, monsters, mean dwarves- but also mental health. weirdmaggedon surely shows those writers and animators know a thing or two about that.

Yes, my DS is fascinated by it and has taught himself how to play the theme tune on his keyboard.

My DS is 8 btw, and has also made the journal and has bought Dippers hat.
