How accurate is it?
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 pinpoint accuracy.
Our tink n stink sandtimers feature our trademarked character embossed end caps. The characters are there for a reason. They tell parents and teachers whether the timers are being turned over before they should to gain or lose time.
We've also colour coded each of our timers. Our 5 minute timer will always be dark blue. We do not offer this increment of time in any other colour. Our understanding of child behaviour and experience of selling sand timers has led us to believe that children require and thrive on consistency. Therefore, when parents and teachers buy sand timers form tink and stink, they can be 100% sure that the exact same timer is used both at home and at school. This level of consistency ensures routines and treatment plans are not disrupted by different variations of a single timer that ultimately shows the same time span.
All tink n stink sand timers are genuine and 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 timer 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.
