This amazing new Easy View Digital Sand Timer by Educational Insights combines the familiar shape of a traditional sand timer with cool digital technology. As digital sand drops through the timer, a synchronized LED display shows the descending numbers on a countdown clock. Best of all, a friendly beep alerts you when time's up! Plus you can customize the duration of the countdown (from 60 seconds to 99 minutes). Perfect for games and activities, EasyView also functions as a stopwatch and an alarm clock. Requires 1 AAA battery (not included).
