How to use

1 / Prepare your toddler for the transition 
2/ Press the "control button" to select which timer minute the toddler will set up.
 The lights around the timer will turn on, that means the timer is ready to be set-up.
3/ Ask your toddler to press either the 2 or 5-minute timer. Explain that when the timer goes off, it means it's time to stop what they're doing or time to go.
4 / When the Buddy Timer goes off, simply press any button to stop the sound and flashing light. This lets your child know that it's time to wrap up their current task and move on to the next one. By putting your child in control, the transition becomes much smoother and less stressful for everyone involved.
The Buddy Timer is more than a timer.
Here are a few clever uses for this handy gadget:


  • Teach patience by setting the timer while your little ones wait their turn.

  • Avoid last-minute rushes by setting the timer 5 minutes before leaving the house.

  • Set the timer to let your toddler know they'll have your full attention when it buzzes.

  • Enhance bedtime and other routines with Buddy Timer.
