Tico Timer is a fun visual timer for children.
Select from ten different types of countdown available, from disappearing squares to a shrinking circle, and it will tell your child – in a visual way – how much time there is left till the task at hand is due, be it brushing teeth or finish getting dressed.
There are six original musical tracks to play along (and in sync) with the visuals on the screen.
Tico Timer is a great way for developing the sense of time in small children.
