Do you ever struggle to have your kid accomplish a task within given time boundaries? With Timer for Kids daily routines like cleaning, teeth brushing and dressing up become fun and competitive. You set the time duration and select favorite animal picture that will be slowly revealing during the countdown. Features - very simple to use - beautiful design - 11 animal pictures - 3 music themes - "Rewind" button to give your kid 20 seconds of additional time - "Forward" button to quickly decrease remaining time by 20 seconds - you can pick any picture from your photo library - works in background when you use other apps - "Share" button We created this Timer for Kids to make "5 minutes" sound less abstract for our own children. We found it extremely useful and we do hope that you will find it useful too. By the way, App Store reviews are very helpful to us. If you think that Timer for Kids is worthy, would you mind taking a moment to write a review? I really helps and we'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!



  • Half-way works...

    By amboarnoux
    Purchased the animals and music/sound so music would sound when the timer is up along with revealing the different animal picture options. The animal pics all work, but the music doesn’t at all. Frustrating. It still semi-works to help my almost-3yr old complete a task, etc....but it would be worlds better if there was sound to go with the end of the timer to help her know for sure the time was up.
  • Cute but...

    I want my money back, the sound settings don't work, even when I restarted my phone. You have to buy the app and buy to get the ads to disappear! This is terrible! Shame on you!
  • A lot of money

    By Rebecca.Camacho
    There are a lot of ads that you cannot bypass unless you pay.... I paid thinking I was buying the app but if I want to unlock other animals I have to pay more.... I want my money back. Don’t buy this app. Look for better options.
  • Would love bedtime options...

    By llflood
    Yes. Those advertisements need to run somewhere else for sure. The pics were cute so I decided to go ahead and pay to remove them and now it's great. I would love to see some themes in pics and music-like lullabies and a sleepy animal. I need it mostly to keep daughter on bedtime routine so relaxing picture and music would be great!
  • Not too thought out

    By LifetimeAlaskan
    This app runs ads when you start the timer. But it also runs the timer. That ruins the concept of the timer. I wish they would have the timer wait to start until after the ad is over. We downloaded it for our daughter to motivate her and reduce her anxiety while giving her boundaries in completing tasks. Seeing the timer partially completed when the ad is completed has the opposite effect... seems like a good idea and the picture options are cute
  • Video Ads on a kid app ...awful!

    By Disappointed1897
    The app is initially very cute and a great way for children to learn time management. However, I have no idea why the need to put pop up Ads once you start the timer. There are already ads at the bottom of the screen. You don't have to make the ads so invasive and push the ads down our our throats! It's ridiculous especially for a children's app. I want my money back and I'll find a visual timer that's actually dedicated helping kids and not with an ulterior motive and just trying to make money from advertisers that solely want to sell crap using a kid app. Shame on you!
  • Simple and effective

    By Mom2herandher
    Very good timer. Simple to use. Music and pictures are appropriate and cute, but they are not too entertaining that it becomes a distraction. The visual helps kids to better manage time during meals, getting ready for school, etc. One thing I don't like is: The clock always starts with a full face, whether you set it for 1 hour or 30 minutes or 15 minutes, etc. The developers should change the app, or at least offer the option, to have the timer resemble increments on a normal clock. Meaning, if 1 hour is set, the clock should start with a full face; if 30 minutes is set, the clock should start with half the face; if 15 minutes is set, the clock should start with only a quarter of the face remaining to be revealed. Starting with a full face, no matter how long or short the timer is set for, won't fully help kids understand how much time they actually have. For instance, I give my kids 1 hour to eat dinner, but I only give them 20 minutes to eat breakfast. If the clock always starts with a full face for every meal, then how will they know there is actually a difference in the amount of time they have to finish different meals? In order to mitigate this issue, I always set the timer for 1 hour. Then I "forward" the clock until it displays the amount of time I actually want to have. This way, the kids understand that they have more time when it is a full face, compared to the amount of time they have when it is less than a full face. And doing it this way makes the timer resemble increments on a normal clock. The kids can start to learn what 45 minutes feels like when the timer begins at what is equivalent to the number 3 on a normal clock vs what 10 minutes feels like when the timer begins at what is the equivalent to the number 10 on a normal clock.
  • Video ads? Really?

    By Quitting Facebook
    It really defeats the purpose of having a 10 second timer when a 30 second ad immediately starts as soon as you hit go. And mine froze as soon as I hit skip ad. Had to manually force it to quit. This happened five times before I just deleted the app. Stupid.
  • Music not working

    By MQ009
    I paid for the music & it's not working. I'm not happy about this!
  • Pass the time with music

    By Musicat's Review
    My child and I find it easier to pass the time with this simple app. Whether it's brushing teeth or cleaning toys, tasks get done easily.
