Specification for this product family
Time Timer has proven for 25 years to be a globally recognized time management resource. Designed to show the passage of time using the signature red disk. As time elapses, the red disk disappears in a clear, graphic way - making common routines at work, school and home stress-free and enjoyable. The Time Timer Original 8 inch is the ideal 60-minute visual timer for all abilities, including kids and adults with autism or ADHD. This large timer for kids and professionals has easy-to-read, large numbers, a protective lens, and included dry erase activity card. If desired, write or draw the task on the included Dry Erase Activity Card and place card on top slot. Turn the center knob to move the red disk counter-clockwise to the duration of your choice (up to 60 minutes). The timer is now set, and the quiet countdown has begun. No ticking means no distractions! As time expires, the red disk disappears moving in a clockwise direction - providing an understanding of time left with just a quick glance. For the ultimate in flexibility, the Time Timer Original 8 inch can be used on magnetic whiteboards and numerous other metallic surfaces. It can also stand on a flat surface with its two foldable feet or be hung on the wall. An optional alert (on/off) on the back of the timer controls the sound at the end of the timing cycle.
From the manufacturer
Jan Rogers, Founder & Inventor - Time Timer
In October 1989, Jan was a busy mom with a curious kindergartner. Her daughter routinely asked questions about time: "How much longer? When will we go? How long is 15 minutes? When will dinner be ready?" Jan, like many others, found explaining time to a 5-year old difficult, frustrating...okay, downright crazy-making.
After many years of dedicated work, solopreneurship turned into a team effort, and the vision of "being able to see time" eventually traveled around the globe. After 25 years, the same Time Timer Jan originally sketched on a legal pad can be found in classrooms, homes, therapy centers, restaurants, boardrooms, and factories around the world.
How Time Timer Works
Easy to Set
By turning the center knob counterclockwise, the colored disk can be set to the desired amount of time.
No Loud Ticking
The timer automatically begins to count down with no loud ticking.
Time Visually Disappears
As time elapses, the colored disk disappears. The Time Timer operates in a clockwise direction to replicate the movement of an analog clock, and shows exactly how much time is left.
Make Every Moment Count
When you see time disappear, you can conquer it. When the red disk is gone, time is up! An optional alert is available.
The Time Timer Original 8" -Educator's Edition includes a Dry Erase Activity Card. The Dry Erase Activity Card slots into the top of the timer, allowing you to write or draw the timed activity. The Time Timer Original 8" can fit up to 2 Dry Erase Activity Cards across the top, making it perfect for First/Then Activities and Visual Schedules.
The Time Timer is clinically proven to increase self-regulation in children. Whether it is school work, screen time, or chores, they are able to see how much time is left. Give them the confidence and independence to track their own time.
Teacher Tested, Student Approved
The Time Timer Original 8" - Educator Edition is a part of our Original line-up. The Time Timer Original is available in 3", 8", and 12" models. A fan favorite in the classroom for over 25 years, this line-up provides intuitive visual time management regardless of the number of students, the size of the room, or if it's in the school, work, or home environment.
Intuitive Assistive Technology
Time Timer believes in creating products that truly help people of all ages and abilities to conquer time - in the classroom, in the home, and in the office. While time can be a challenge for differently abled people, we aim to provide intuitive and innovative solutions that make a real difference.

FYI - The audible alarm (also called "alert") feature is optional on both the 3-in and the 8-inch timers, by simply pushing a little switch to "on" or "off". If you don't plan to use the audible alarm feature, the 3-inch timer and the 8-inch timer are exactly the same except for size. However, if you do plan to use the audible alarm feature, be aware that you cannot adjust the volume or number of beeps for either timer - you only have the default mode as described in my paragraph #1 above.
UPDATE - Some other reviews have stated the alarm/alert has 1 beep, 2 beeps, 3 beeps, etc. When reading a review, be sure to read beneath the reviewer's name, in blue print, which size model they purchased. Also, there's two 8-inch timer models - one with a top handle and one that does not. Mine does not have a top handle. I have just re-verified the number of beeps for the 8-inch timer alarm/alert: it is exactly as I've written above - 4 double beeps, ie. beep-beep, beep-beep, beep-beep, beep-beep - they are loud - then it ends.
1- Only mommy and daddy touch the timer.
2- He has to start with the food item he "thinks" he won't like first and move to his favorite food last.
3- Therefore, if time runs out and he hasn't been eating in a reasonable tine frame, he'll miss out on his favorite foods.
4- And- obviously- there's no dessert unless dinner was given a good try (75% for us is reasonable, and I serve fairly small portions)
5- We give him about 25 minutes for the average meal, more or less depending on the items served.
At first he thought of it as beating the timer, and that worked well. It's been a few weeks and it was brought out once when my emotionally sensitive one began to cry like he was being punished. I reminded him that the timer is not to punish him or make him feel bad, it is simply to give him a way to see that time is going by while he's at the table. That calmed him down, knowing it wasn't that he was in trouble, it was just to help him see how long it was taking him.
Since I'm requiring him to eat the "least favorites" first, he's eaten salmon- and found he likes it! I'm not saying this timer is a miracle but it's been a miracle to us!

-IT WORKS VERY WELL FOR OUR FAMILY.
-EASIER CONCEPT OF TIME :
Some children are more easily motivated to mind about the time with gadgets like this. It works for mine. They enjoy setting it up and seeing the time/ red part get smaller until it's completely gone.
Some children for various reasons may struggle with the concept of time / with reading analogue clocks and this type of timing device can help them tremendously.
-DESIGN DEVELOPMENT NEEDED :
Despite this brilliant and unique idea of visually demonstrating the concept of time , this product would do better with some further design development. It needs to be made sturdier which would extend it's life and make it suitable to a wider group.
At the moment , it's suitable for those who need/ or may benefit from the motivational or visual aspect of this tool BUT THEY MUST ALSO BE gentle, cautious and non "clumsy" (and understand the concept of how things can break/ gravity etc...).
But the reality is , this product is very much needed by all sorts of people who may either not understand how things break (for ex young children) or may do but may have difficulties coordinating or controlling their movements. There is a very wide variety of neurological problems that affect the control of movement and that a person may have ( including many adults) which means this product needs to be made stronger . It's a shame because it's otherwise such a good product.
If this product only lasts with very heavy supervision so the person in need of it can not possibly break it , when in fact the whole purpose of the product is, on the contrary , to increase the independence and sense of achievement / self confidence of the receiver , then this product is not yet where it needs to be.
The idea is excellent but it needs further development. I suggest :
- 1 ) a rubbery type of material all the way round the frame of the timer to help hands grab it without it slipping too easily (although I have to say the plastic is not particularly slippery in itself but just not non-slippery enough for its targeted market) . This will also help absorb the chock when it falls .
- 2) something that removes the need for those little feet at the back to make it stand on the table without falling backwards. Those fold-able little feet can't last long in my opinion. So , for example , they could make the frame much wider , and when it's wider it's then wide enough not to fall backwards.
- 3 ) there should be an additional transparent hard plastic screen in front of the timer to protect it . As it is , if someone sat on it by accident , it will break the main mechanism that makes it work .
IN SUMMARY : VERY GOOD IF YOU ARE ABLE TO MAKE SURE IT'S NOT GOING TO BREAK EASILY.
I use it as a tutor with exam practice sessions - nice & big enough for all to see wherever you are seated
The only tiny fault is that it is a very delicate object and I wouldn't let kids try to set it themselves.
Hope this helps
