What we thought: This is a really cool timer for the kiddos. It is easy to use and I really loved the multi-function applications. We use timers for lots of things at home. One of our favorite ways to do chores is to play cleaning games to see how much we can get done in a certain amount of time. Now that school has started we set a timer about 30 minutes before bed so the kids know when to expect to wind down. The warning function is great for these uses. It gives the kids (and me) a heads up that we need to wrap things up. I also like the light function that can be used with or without the noise of the timer. This really is a fantastic timer and we have put it to great use at home. It would also be a fantastic tool in the classroom! ABCD Diaries gives the Time Tracker Mini from Learning Resources an A+!
