What about Megan McCafferty's middle-grade series Jessica Darling's IT List, a prequel to her Jessica Darling series for teens?

In general, is there or should there be a trope about spin-offs for younger or older audiences?

"They tried taking this tangent with Strawberry Shortcake a few times, most notably in with the 2003 series by way of the launch of the Strawberry Shortcake Baby line, featuring baby Strawberry Shortcake, kitten Custard, a younger puppy Pupcake and an unnamed teddy bear being prominently displayed on products meant for infants and toddlers."

The baby toy line is a revival from farther back. One of my presents in early 1980s was a Baby Strawberry Shortcake, while my sister got Baby Blueberry Muffin. (Around 1983, based on my Dad's deployment.)

"ElfQuest included some self-parody strips featuring the regular characters drawn in the style of Tiny Toon Adventures."

This is NOT an example. The characters are still adults, just cartoonishly drawn in goofy stories (There were at least two). I think it should be pulled. Any thoughts or objections?

Pulled this

It's not a Spinoff Babies, it's a straight-up Prequel, and actually more of an inverted Spin-Offspring (the focus is on Joan Trotter and Freddy the Frog, not teenage Del).
