Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tool to enhance focus I’m a piano teacher. Oftentimes when students need to drill certain difficult passage, they lose patience. But when there is a 3 minute time limit to achieve task at hand, it becomes more fun and they focus better. This timer does the magic! Wonderful tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prayer Timers I teach CCD (Sunday School) to a bunch of 3rd Graders. Though these sand timers are typically used to encourage children to brush their teeth for an appropriate amount of time, I give them as one of my Christmas or Easter gifts to encourage my students to spend three minutes in prayer and another three minutes in Scripture every day. I appreciate how they come in a variety of colors. I let the boys choose first so they won't end up with pink! They would prefer the yellow, green or orange (gender neutral colors). So typical of OTC to offer the unusual or hard-to-find item with a spectrum of choices at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sand Egg Times Great! I gave these timers out to 12 participants in a Mindfulness Meditation education class of 50 people. I put stickies under 12 chairs and at the end of the training asked folks to check and whoever had one received the gift of the 3 min sand timer to practice mindfulness meditation at their office desk daily. Those who got one were absolutely thrilled. Even though I had to pay for the quick shipment, which ended up costing more than the timers, it was worth it to have them on time. Thanks so much. Jewel54

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sand timer's variance is large. One timer's sand stopped before 3 minutes, another was done in 180 seconds! Your company needs to adpopt better quality control! There is too large a variance in the amount of time that each timer is accurate for. My impression is that I bought three minute sand timers but two of the timer's time deviated large from 180 seconds. Other than that I like the clever use of colored-sand that each color timer's color is, but it would have been nice had blue been a color that was used or perhaps purple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Egg Timers My group is using these as a table favor. The head of our group is using the hourglass as one of her emblems. This is close as we could get and the price was good. We had to order about 50, so we could not pay a lot for each one. I always find what I need at Oriental Trading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and handy sand timers These 3 minute sand timers went into shoe box gifts this year. We do lots of charity boxes every year and this is one of the little extras we put in for the kids (or their parent might use it). They're well constructed and colors are bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids & Adults love them! This is the second time I've purchased these. Well made - all have worked fine, timing seems to be within 10 - 20 seconds of each other which I find to be impressive! Kids and adults love to watch them. Great for timing games.

What is the diameter of the circles on the bottom of the hour glass?

Also, can we order just one color or does it only come in a variety of colors?
Asked by: CiaraS
The ends are 1 inch in diameter. We apologize, these are pre-packaged at the manufacturer. A color/style choice is not available.
