A lovely sorting and teaching clock. John Crane's own label toys have now evolved into Tidlo - Timeless toys. Tidlo features the very best of the 'Branching Out' range of toys - in terms of excellent value and high quality. These toys are bright and colourful, promoting fun play and developing imagination and physical skills. This teaching clock features clear numerals with the number written out fully underneath the numeral; aiding number recognition. The 60 minute markings are an ideal introduction to telling the time, as is the colourful inner of the clock marking out quarters of an hour. The clock also provides an opportunity for learning about colours and shapes, with the number blocks.

"No ... now it's quarter past one."
"Korter pass one!"
And so on.
I hadn't really imagined trying to teach telling the time to a two-year-old, so I thought I'd have a look to see what kind of teaching clocks were available for younger learners.
The 'Tidlo Sorting and Teaching Clock' is made of wood, with a little stand that slots into the back to hold the clock face upright, but at an angle. The numbers are made out of magnetised wooden bricks, which helps to hold them in place securely. The hands of the clock are made of plastic, and are decently robust. Sometimes I have a little trouble setting them to exactly the time I want to, as they don't always quite click into place first time, but I don't find this a major problem.
I was drawn to this particular clock because it was attractive and colourful, and the hands of the clock could be set in various positions to demonstrate different times. Unlike other similar products on the market, the numbers are on different shaped bricks, rather than all being on circles, which helps your child to put them in the correct order on the clock face. To start with, my daughter just enjoyed taking the numbers out and learning how to put them back in. Once she had mastered that, I started talking about 'o'clock' with her. Now that she's starting to get the hang of that, we're moving on to 'half past'!
Whilst the clock is a great teaching aid for younger children, the nicest thing about it from my point of view is that it is also a toy, and when the complicated business of learning about the time gets a bit much, my daughter and I can have fun looking at numbers, colours and shapes too.
