Product Description

Tired of nagging your kids to get ready? Asking them 10 times to put away their toys?

The Lickety Split Musical Timer turns daily tasks into a fun, beat-the-clock game. Accelerating classical music encourages dawdling kids to get going, while an animated hourglass counts down. The abstract concept of time becomes tangible for kids.

The timer uses encouragement and the power of music to motivate children as they move through daily transitions. So, instead of nagging, grown-ups are free to champion their kids!

Developed by parents and educational technologists. Perfect for preschoolers, early elementary schoolers, and their grown-ups.

Musical timers include:
* Ready to leave the house in 5 minutes
* Getting dressed
* Getting ready for a meal
* Cleaning one's room
* Making one's bed
* Brushing teeth (for a full two minutes)
* Taking turns

4.0 out of 5 stars could be better..... November 21, 2011
By Bania

it is an excellent app that does exactly what it describes! ... when I saw the custom button I thought you would be able to customize your own chores, but it only allows you to customize the time. I would give this five stars if I could customize the chore list, and add a check to completed items.... add multiple kids too!! I know I'm asking for a lot, but so far this is the only chore app for kids on kindle fire....
This app is better suited for much younger kids right now

5.0 out of 5 stars my kids love it! February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
My kids love it so much they beg me to use it. Life at our house has gotten so much easier. My only 2 suggestions is a way to allow multiple kids to use it. I have 3 and we had to make up rules on who could press the I did it button and when. Also if the set your own timer had more options that would make it perfect. That aside it has taught my kids how long to brush their teeth and I ,myself , use it as well. They get dressed easily, clean their rooms quickly and have a great time doing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A child motivational tool March 30, 2012
By pedraum
Though my kids are older now, this app is consistent with the methodology I used effectively with them to motivate chore completion. The chore clock countdown is super simple and smart. Super nanny in your pocket.

This is really a hidden gem of an app.

It says it has a custom setting but it does not work. Very disappointed. Good for small tasks. Wish I had not paid for faulty product.

I downloaded this for my grandkids, but I wish they had a version for adults. I confess that I use it for myself at times.
