Tired of nagging your kids to get ready? Asking them 10 times to put away their toys?
The Lickety Split Musical Timer turns daily tasks into a fun, beat-the-clock game. Accelerating classical music encourages dawdling kids to get going, while an animated hourglass counts down. The abstract concept of time becomes tangible for kids.
The timer uses encouragement and the power of music to motivate children as they move through daily transitions. So, instead of nagging, grown-ups are free to champion their kids!
Developed by parents and educational technologists. Perfect for preschoolers, early elementary schoolers, and their grown-ups.
Built-in musical timers include:

* Ready to leave the house in 5 minutes
* Getting dressed
* Getting ready for a meal
* Cleaning one's room
* Making one's bed
* Brushing teeth (for a full two minutes)
* Taking turns
* Study Quietly

Or select a song from your library to create your own timer of any length!

Customer Reviews

Great for 4 minutes or less

I was so happy to find the free version of this app at first. It was a great concept to encourage my daughter to pick up her pace on most things in her day. Got the paid version so I could set the timer to 20 minutes for dinner (the main reason I got the app) and found out the custom time options are only 1, 2, 3, or 4 minutes. The app also hasn't had any updates since 2014, even though other people have left similar reviews as mine, so it doesn't seem promising that there will be any expansion of these features.

Too short

Disappointed. I wanted to use this to give my toddler an idea of how long she needed to stay in her room for "quiet time"/nap time. Unfortunately "custom time" is only your choice of 1,2,3 or 4 minutes. That's hardly "custom" and certainly not long enough for my needs (an hour - hour and a half). It's a great idea and catchy interface for kids though. Great for short time needs.

Needs a little more freedom

I love this app, my kids are racing the app and each other I just wish I could set my own time limit 5, 10, 15 minutes even would be nice but this only goes up to 4 minutes.
