Is It Any Good?

Happy Timer - Handy Timer helps kids understand the passing of time in a more concrete way. The disappearing graphics within the rectangles help kids to see how much time is remaining in a task or an activity. Because it's so simple, kids with attention deficits can focus on the task at hand and not the timer itself. It offers functionality similar to Time Timer but fewer options.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
