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!

Best Help EVER

I have twin 6-yr old boys, 1 is ADHD. Our biggest battle everyday is cleaning their room. Our behavioral therapist recommended this app to motivate them to clean. OMG the INSTANT change! For a week now, we've not had one battle of wills, no screaming, no threats and the room is clean in under 4 minutes (the room timer is 4 minutes long and they race to beat the musical timer.) Afterwards I can hang out with them and play or read or cuddle while watching TV. I debuted it Monday for room cleaning, but it also has timers for brushing teeth, getting dressed and others. After their room was clean I let them play with it and they IMMEDIATELY wanted to brush their teeth using the timer. WAIT. My children were VOLUNTEERING to brush their teeth for a full 2 minutes?!? I can't thank my therapist and this app enough for the INSTANT change for the better in my family.

Great Application - Must buy

Thanks for making this application. I recently bought it and use it. It is really encouraging for the kids. Also keeps them on their toes and forces them to beat the challenge.

Some Suggestions:

1. Custom feature would be great if you could create your own custom

2. Custom time should be more like choose your own time as few things may take more than 4 minutes. Home work may take 15 minutes.

3. Multiple events- for example
Getting ready is a series of events that you could plan one after.

30 minutes for getting ready - timer 1 - potty - 5 min and then continue Timer two - brush 3 min and then timer 3 shower - 5 min and so on.

This way parents don't need to continuously set the timers every single time and day. Its the same thing which is repeated daily.

Would appreciate if these features are added soon. It will make this application great.
Thanks again.
