Strong and sturdy, they were very appealing and colour coded with the time in minutes moulded onto the end. They encouraged children to use time-related language and were ideal for time-related games and activities, such as tidy-up time - a race to put the toys away before the sand disappeared - and timing each other playing with certain toys and swapping when time was up. An excellent resource which helped visualise the difficult concept of time." Specification Size: 325x270mm. 3+
