Invent Boston designs and develops original products to add science + whimsy to  every day tasks at home.   Our first product is a Two Minute timer, Two Minute Turtle, a visual timer. The Two Minute Turtle helps children and adults focus on two minute tasks such as brushing teeth, physical therapy, taking a shower and speaking (practicing a presentation or learning a language).

Invent Boston designs the Two Minute Turtle Timer.  The Two Minute Turtle Timer, helps make toothbrushing more fun. Focused brushing on the flipper corresponding to the corner of the mouth. It’s a quadrant toothbrush timer and the Two Minute Turtle Timer makes other two minute tasks more fun, like holding poses, transitions, showers, toilet training, and speaking in meetings. Kids with autism appreciate the visual cues.

Two Minute Turtle Timer For Time Outs Too

Two Minute Turtle Timer For Time Outs Too

Invent Boston designed 10 versions of Two Minute Turtle Timer prototypes til we landed on the one that met our needs for design, function and price. We made 1350 Two Minute Turtle Timers. We sold 1200. We’re excited to be coming to the end of the bunch with just 30 left. We’ve done all we can making them by hand. It’s time to find support—investors—to mass produce and overseas.


Thanks to the creative customers of the Turtle Timers we have new interval timer problem solvers—Time-out Turtle, Therapy Turtle, Talking Turtle and Toilet Training Turtle. How about the Four Minute Frog for…hot showers?
