As for them meeting Dave seven years prior to [[Family Spirit]], if we were to take this as an implication that they met him in 2007 (referencing the first AATC live-action film), that means it would be 2014 at the time of that episode. This can further be supported by the fact that the series was still in production at that time and Eleanor has a poster with "2014" on it in [[Sister Act]] which was only a few episodes prior to Family Spirit. At least we know that they are at least seven in human years, but we don't know what age they were when they met Dave. Although the fact that Simon says they refused to leave his doorstep in [[Who's Your Daddy]] would mean they would had to have been at an age when they would know significant communication skills. In the 80s series they were already talking fluently when they were babies, so if that carried over to ALVINNN!!! it would support them being very young when they met Dave.

Regarding what grade level they're in, all signs point to high school, for too many reasons to list here. The only reason Miss Smith is one of the only teachers they have is because the animators don't want to create new CGI models for all other classes the chipmunks would go to, so we must overlook that. Simon saying that they have been in school for two years in [[Kiss Conspiracy]] doesn't necessarily mean the school they are seen going to is the only kind of school they have ever been to, he could have just meant high school (meaning they wouldn't be freshmen if that's their second year) and they could have gone to middle school before. In [[Kickin' It Old School ]] Theodore fixed Dave's compter with a few button presses and said he leared how to do so in nursery school (Personally I assume he means like a child day care), but he might have been sarcastic because Dave is a technophobe and it would be within Theodore's character (in the ALVINNN!!! series) to make a joke like that.

Most small rodents usually don't live past five years, but with cartoon logic the Chipmunks and Chipettes could have similar lifespans to humans, it's just always how cartoons have been; heck, for all we know they could be immortal (just kidding). In Attack of the Zombies when Dave said Alvin was too young to watch the zombie show, Alvin tries telling him that he would be too young in human years but not in chipmunk years. This would also make sense considering that Dave was being a "Smother mother" to them in Slippin' Thru My Fingers, treating them like they were younger and less mature than they actually are.

As for them meeting Dave seven years prior to Family Spirit, if we were to take this as an implication that they met him in 2007 (referencing the first AATC live-action film), that means it would be 2014 at the time of that episode. This can further be supported by the fact that the series was still in production at that time and Eleanor has a poster with "2014" on it in Sister Act which was only a few episodes prior to Family Spirit. We know that they are at least seven in human years, but we don't know what age they were when they met Dave. Although the fact that Simon says they refused to leave his doorstep in Who's Your Daddy would mean they would had to have been at an age when they would know significant communication skills. In the 80s series they were already talking fluently when they were babies, so if that carried over to ALVINNN!!! it would support them being very young when they met Dave.

Personally I like to believe that they are somewhere between eight and ten years old in human years but in chipmunk years are equivalent to a human teenager between fourteen and sixteen.
