Our Story

Over 20 years ago, Time Timer® inventor Jan Rogers’ youngest child struggled to make transitions from one daily routine to another. Whether it was time to get ready for school, or for homework, practice or bed, her young daughter often felt frustrated and anxious because of her inability to grasp the concept of elapsed time.

Motivated to solve this universal problem, Jan created the Time Timer®—an innovative, simple time management tool designed to “show” the passage of time through the use of a patented red disk. As time elapses, the red disk disappears—making common routines at work, school or home stress-free and enjoyable.

Today, the award-winning Time Timer helps children and adults around the world better visualize and manage the passage of time, so that they can be more productive, organized and relaxed throughout the day to “make every moment count.
