I really enjoy each item we review for the most part but when I got the chance to use The Time Timer I thought “Oh this is just what I need!” I have the worst time trying to keep track of our time for each subject. In the past I have purchased numerous timers all with the same result, they go off and are disturbing or too quiet and unobtrusive and I forget about them.
So basically this timer counts down time with a visual. Do you see the red section in the pictures? That gets smaller as time passes and then when time is up you get a nicely audible but not scary short beep, it’s perfect. I received the 3” version which has a protective cover made from clear frosted plastic. This cover has come in handy more than just to protect the timer itself. We have discovered it is very functional to hide the numbers but allow the colored visual to remain visible for those times when my son fixates on “how many minutes left”. This is huge as he will freak out over not having what he sees as enough minutes or too many minutes left on an activity.
This timer comes in handy for so many things cooking, school work, projects, computer time, etc. Definitely worth getting a few for Christmas gifts or even for yourself for different rooms of the house. I myself had to search a few times after the children “borrowed” it for their activities in other parts of the house, but that is a good thing!
