What people say

  • "I have put a EasyRead Time Teacher clock in each classroom. Not only can the children use them really effectively but they also look great. As a specialist provision it was really important that the clocks did not look childish. These clocks were better than I originally thought."

  • "Our daughter found it very difficult to read the times. With the clock, it worked out right away after a short explanation! The dial is beautifully designed in a child-friendly way. Due to the fact that the children can read the time very quickly and correctly, it has a very motivating effect! Clear buy recommendation!"

  • "What a brilliant clock for helping my son learn the time. 3 easy steps. Looks bright and colourful and is sturdy. It has everything that is needed, alarm, snooze, night display on a sensor and the snooze button makes the display brighter if needed. The main thing is my son likes it, he can work it and it is helping already with time. (He can do digital) but struggles on a normal clock face). May cost a bit more than some of the others but in my opinion it is worth the money and you get what you pay for."

  • "Perfect for teaching kids the time. Would definitely recommend this item. Both of my sons have one and my youngest wants to sleep with it on!!"
