What the PPS Award testers said:
"These large sand timers were just the right height for our children to sit on! 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."
