Review from Jeannie’s Product Reviews
Youngest grandson was here when these arrived and was really taken with them. They aren’t precision accurate but for basics like egg timing or just basic oven timing these are great. They range from 30 seconds to ten minutes, and I think they will be really good for parents. You know when you say “ten minutes more”, “ive minutes til tea is ready” etc and then the kids act totally surprised and annoyed when you say times up – well with this they have a visual reminder so they can check for themselves. No-one likes being dragged away in the middle of a film, game or book, ( my mum despaired of my book addiction and selective deafness!) but at least this way they (we) have some warning, and it’ll save tempers and tantrums all round. Sharing toys too – “ten minutes then its XYZ’s turn” A visual is so much easier to understand for young children than an abstract concept of time. Exercising – you know how ten minutes seems like nothing when you start, and then you feel it must have passed, but it hasn’t. Use one of these and at least you can see how much longer you’ve got to do – or for the glass half full people, how much you’ve already completed!
The timers themselves don’t come in a box, and I guess at this price that’s why, but it would have given some protection. Luckily mine weren’t damaged, so that wasn’t an issue but I’ve had parcels arrive in all sorts of conditions so a box would have been good, and made them look more attractive as a set. They’ve made of a lightweight plastic outer, with a glass inner and the time for each one is stamped on the head. They feel lightweight and yet are surprisingly durable, I’ve dropped them a couple of times – Ok I’m a Klutz – and they’re fine.
