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.
