Invent Boston Blog

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.

Time-Out Turtle

Virginia Berman

Kids need time-outs. Not just punishment but time to stop, slow, breathe. The Two Minute Turtle Timer is one way for kids to want to slow down and have a companion when they do take a time-out. Give the child the Two Minute Turtle Timer. It fits in their hand. It’s water-resistant. It’s tough. It’s theirs. No phones. No distractions.

The Two Minute Turtle Timer gets kids to want to stop, to watch the lights blink and as it does, time and they slow down. To give kids the tool and habit to take 2 minutes is a gift.


Next time your child needs a time-out? Let them want to take time out. The 2 minute timer, Two Minute Turtle Timer, helps them want to pause. You will be giving them the healthy habit for life- taking 2 minutes to collect themselves and breathe when they need it most. Find the limited edition Two Minute Turtle Timer on Etsy and
