Time’s up for dirty hands and teeth!

What kids consider sufficient in terms of hand washing varies wildly, from a cursory glance at the tap to standing at the basin with enough gushing water to extend Australia’s water crisis by another year.

The Wash and Brush Timer by Trendy Kid teaches children the appropriate amount of time required to was hands and brush teeth thoroughly (twenty seconds for hands and two minutes for teeth). A flashing light indicates when they need to wind up their ablutions.

The timer is battery operated and can be easily wall mounted. It costs just £4.99 and is available from Amazon UK.


  1. That gadget would be awesome for my daugher – I went onto Amazon & they won’t ship to Aus though, pity!

  2. Hi, I’ve just discovered the same thing. I’ve emailed Trendy Kid to find out if there’s another retailer who will ship to Oz. Will let you know the result …

  3. Trendy Kid advised me that this gadget is about to be discontinued. So if you know anyone in the UK who can buy it on your behalf, get in quick! They don’t have any distributors who ship to Oz.
