This review is from: Orchard Toys Penguin Clock Face (Toy)
This little penguin is an invaluable aid for teaching the time to even fairly young children. Purchased chiefly for my six year old this 'toy' has also provided lots of entertainment for the three year old of the household who has grasped the concept of 'long hand/short hand' already. For the six year old the segmented clock face has finally made sense of 'quarter past, half past' etc for her and she is showing increasing confidence in time telling. Bought in conjunction with Orchards 'Tell the Time' game (which is also helpful) this penguin has been a real winner. Just a word of warning regarding durability, children any younger than three may pull the plastic 'hands' of the clock off rendering it useless so suggest it is kept out of their reach.
