Time Out Timer stool leaves kids begging for “time-out” punishments

by Gavril Mankoo

Looking for a better way to figure out just how long your kid has been grounded? Well, here’s a pretty fun way that might, on the other hand, encourage your children to pull off tricks more often than usual, hoping to have themselves grounded. Called the Time Out Timer Stool, this one’s shaped like a giant hourglass, measuring 12” in diameter and standing 14” tall. Filled with sand to time about five minutes, this one’s a great way to have your kid “time out”, instead of the traditional way of having him or her stand facing a corner fruitlessly. Making punishments fun, the stool weighs in at about 150lbs and uses a durable mango wood base. $69 Time Out Timer Stool is available at Wisteria.
