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

In app purchase upgrade allows you to have additional timers or select a song from your library to create your own timer of any length!

This app is great my kids love it, and it helps to keep them on task. I just wish that they had longer times 10,15,30.......

Had high hopes

This is such a great idea and it gets so close to being well executed. I use this in my classroom for timed activities and I wish there was a way to bypass the "introduction" every time.
Also, there is no quit option of you accidentally hit the wrong time and then you have to sit and wait for the duck to come out and quack at you...
My biggest complaint is that once the timer finishes, if you don't hit the home button right away, it freezes and you have to restart the whole app every time.
I hope these issues get resolved because I really do think it is a good idea.

You have to upgrade to the paid version so that you can customize your own time. Also, it won't let you pick your own time and own music together. It's either or. Would be very nice to be able to do both at the same time.
