Help preschoolers learn to tell time with the Preschool Watch. Little ones will love wearing their very own watch that features glow-in-the-dark animal icons instead of numbers. The method of teaching the concept of time can be done in three different ways. Instead of saying, "It's bedtime in 20 minutes," parents say, "It's bedtime when the big hand reaches the rabbit." Instead of saying, "We're going to the playground in two hours," parents say, "We're going to the playground when the small hand touches the purple." And instead of saying, "Your friends are coming over for a playdate at 4:30," parents say, "Your friends are coming over for a playdate when the small hand is on the pink and the big hand touches the frog." A little star counts off the seconds, making it easier for kids to track and ensuring they don't get it confused with the hours and minutes. This is also a way to help kids understand the clockwise rotation of the hands.
The Preschool Watch is available in six different designs, including unicorn, dinosaur, firefighter, trucks, princess, and mermaid. Each one is splash-proof, shock proof, and has a hypoallergenic soft silicone strap.
We love the idea behind this watch. The fun designs, animal faces, and colors make it something that little kids will enjoy wearing. And the method to teach the concept of time is very clever. Little kids don't understand what "five minutes" means, but using pictures of animals and colors gives them a visual, helping with keeping to a daily routine, transitioning between activities, taking turns, and more both in the classroom and at home.
The Preschool Watch will be a fun way for kids ages 3 and up to learn how to tell time.
The Preschool Watch is 3ATM water-resistant (splash proof) as long as the crystal, crown, and case remain intact. This should not be worn when swimming.
The watch runs on a replaceable battery. It's recommended that a retailer or jeweler replace it.
A Preschool Clock is also available and sold separately.
