Why buy them

Sand Timers are a very effective visual prompt that helps improve concentration and time management. They work because children, in particular, benefit hugely from can seeing time ticking away. The different timers are used in many different ways. For example, the 30 second timer is great for very young children, the 2 minute timer is great for teeth brushing and the 45 minute is invaluable for older children practicing exam question timing. 

Our Sand Timers are used in Schools, Universities, NHS, National Autistic Society, Charities, Parent support groups for Autism and ADHD, Channel 4 and Cbeebies.

How accurate are they? 

Our sand timers are rarely out but do have a 10% variant either way. Therefore, please bear this in mind if you choose to purchase one. We recommend our digital timers if you are looking for a timer with more pinpoint accuracy.


All tink n stink sand timers have passed British safety checks.

The material used in the outer casting of this sand timer is transparent acrylic with embossed plastic end caps. The inner is a glass tube filled with coloured sand. Please note however that the inner glass tube will break inside the plastic tubing if it is dropped heavily, thrown or purposefully mishandled to break. With 'normal' regular use, however, your sand timers should last a long time. 

Please remember that this product is not a toy and adult supervision is required when it is used in both a classroom and home setting.
