When this show came out I was about 6, I started watching it at the same age but when I was a tween and teen I enjoyed it more. I now have one son and we like watching it together. There are a lot of good lessons and funny moments, but something that has always bothered me is that in season 2, Sabrina and her quizmaster go into the forest of her her fears and Sabrina’s biggest fear is not being accepted into college, so then Mrs. Quick hands her a fast food uniform and I didn’t like that part because it showed kids that if you don’t go to college, you’re just going to be a failure that works at McDonalds and that’s not true. But besides that, I loved the show. The perfect age for kids to start watching this I think would be 9-10.

Early episodes are fun and innocent. Later episodes better for tweens+

The early episodes are pretty innocent and fun. I think the early episodes are good for kids 7+, maybe even 6. However, as Sabrina grows up and finishes high school and college, the subject matters, humor, etc get slightly more mature. Nothing crazy, but I think the latter seasons are probably better for tweens+
