Educational Insights Easy View Digital Sand Timer

WARNING:
CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

The sand timer that BEEPS!\nThis amazing new timer combines the familiar shape of a traditional sand timer with cool digital technology. As digital "sand" drops through the timer, a synchronized LED display shows the descending numbers on a countdown clock. Best of all, a friendly beep alerts you when time's up! Plus you can customize the duration of the countdown (from 60 seconds to 99 minutes). Perfect for games and activities, EasyView also functions as a stopwatch and an alarm clock. Requires 1 AAA battery (not included).\n

2Not what I expected - grains fall for a minute at a time  Aug 28, 2008
By Millie
I got this toy so I could tie the passing of time visually to the falling sand for my three-year old. I spent quite some time researching digital sand clocks, and found that this was basically the only one that shows the grains large enough and separate enough to give a good visual.

This toy was mainly what I expected from the description. The plastic is relatively sturdy, the interface is OK, everything is basically OK, except a couple of things. One, you can only set the timer in whole minute increments (no 30s timing), and two - the passing of sand is not coupled to the length of time on the timer! What?

So - what's the point then? The grains fall at the rate of 1 full hourglass per minute, no matter how many minutes you set for the timer. Basically you get a 1min timer that flips automatically until the number of minutes you have specified. I don't know what purpose this sand timer serves, except decorative, if that's your thing. It's not educational.

*update* The toy didn't last that long either.

1Flimsy Timer for Special Needs Use & Too Complicated  Jul 06, 2010
By Tammy
We bought this timer to keep track of our special needs son's time spent on tasks, while helping to "show" him the time through the hourglass. He's almost 5 yrs old, and still doesn't get the idea of the hourglass electronically. It's too abstract. We hoped that his therapists would be able to use this timer when working him in our home. The user interface is difficult to use too. I had to help several very smart therapists learn how to use it, and even then it was too much of a bother. They all preferred to use a simpler Taylor brand kitchen timer that counts down or up, and cost a whole lot less. After only a couple of months, the timer didn't last after our son knocked it off the table. This timer is over-priced for what your'e getting, and not very durable. Save your money and get a kitchen timer, or buy something more robust. When our son gets older I'll be considering the stoplight task timer.

1Not durable!  Jan 19, 2008
By B. RUSSELL
I ordered this timer for a student with Autism to visually represent time. I needed something durable as it would probably be thrown. This item arrived broken in mutiple places. I couldn't see it until the packaging was off so I threw it away. Its obviously not what I am looking for!

2This broke after 5 months  Jul 18, 2013
By AM "Anne"
My son really likes this and it was great for timing one minute to brush his teeth, but it broke after 5 months. I do not recommend this.

1Broken  Jan 22, 2013
By Jen B.
Received today, broken today in less than 5 hours without any sort of harm to the product. Changing the batteries and pushing the resent button will not help. I'm assuming it has something to do with the rattle I hear from inside. But it is a nice concept.
