Time Buddy.As the mom of two four year olds, I spend tons of time talking about, well, time. Time is such a tough concept for little ones isn't it? For instance, if "A" asks "When are we going to the park?" and I say "In an hour" he really does not know when that is which is why he asks that same question 27 times before the hour is up. This time issue is something I know many other moms struggle with so I was so excited to hear about the
TimeBuddy™ is an educational tool that allows parents to create a visual representation of an entire day for their children. It combines the functionality of a 24hrs clock, visual icons, and a digital clock to guide young children throughout their day. Visual icons, in the form of stickers that represent activities, are chosen by PARENTS and placed at designated times. The actual 24hr clock will point to these icons giving children cues on when to start and end an activity! It removes the from children the unknown factor of "what are we doing next!."
As soon as we started with the clock, I noticed A&W began noticing time more. There was a lot of "Look Mommy! The red hand is almost at the bike so soon we will go ride bikes"! Eureka! The Time Buddy is also helpful at bedtime when they can keep an eye on it and know that play must wind down when the hand reaches our nighttime tasks.
The Time Buddy also allows you to set three different alarms (for bedtime, dinner etc....) as well as record your own personalized greeting!
I think the Time Buddy is an excellent way to help children to understand time management. I know the visual aspect of the Time Buddy has made a huge impact on A&W and has really helped them to understand the routines of our day. Thank you Time Buddy!! I am not alone in my love for Time Buddy. This is a new product (introduced in August) but it has already earned many awards including The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval and Dr. Toy's 100 Best Products Winner.
