[UPDATED 3/7: Random.org chose K. Rock of Food Stamp as the winner of the RumbaTime watch giveaway! Congrats.]
Those of you with preschoolers and elementary-age children will totally feel me on how crucial the concept of TIME is to this age group. It’s all about “Can I have 5 more minutes of TV, Mom?” or “Pleeeeease can we stay at the zoo/mall/party/park/wherever for just 10 more minutes!?” or “What time are we leaving for our trip?” and the list goes on.
I’ve gotten both girls watches in the past – they were always analog watches because I felt strongly about them learning how to actually tell time before jumping into the digital world. They are pretty good with the basics (i.e. hour hand) and Grandma got them a clock for their room so they are practicing telling time on that.
But let’s be honest, the analog watches require some work. Sometimes I just need them to understand what time it is and why we really need to hurry to catch the school bus or why it’s too late to have ice cream. Enter RumbaTime Watches!
I was sent a RumbaTime Firefly watch to review and Chatterbox was the lucky one to test-drive the watch (it quickly became a source of contention between her and Giggles, but really she just happened to be the one walking by when I opened up the box). I like that the watch is rubber (i.e. not breakable), and she likes that it is stylish (i.e. looks like a bracelet). And we both like that she can quickly tell what time it is!
RumbaTime has an entire line of kids’ watches. They make great learning tools, are reasonably priced, and come cutely packaged. I could see these being fun gifts. They also have a ton of different styles and colors for adults and the company seems to be committed to giving back. I’ve been seeing them all over lately – seems that they are all the rage. The creators of RumbaTime watches started out as friends from college… a cool success story!
I’m giving away a RumbaTime kids collection watch to one of our readers. Just leave me a comment telling me why your darling child could use a watch of his or her own. Giveaway ends Friday, March 4 at 12am. Tweet and FB this post (cc @RumbaTimedotcom) and let me know for extra entries.
