Teaching the concept of time to a young child can be something of a difficult task, which is where the Tico Timer app looks to visually stimulate youth to learn how it works. A countdown app that can be used for everything from brushing teeth to eating dinner, the Tico Timer app features original sounds and a system that utilizes a variety of shapes to show children the connection between shifting images and the passing of time.

Created by Ricardo Fonseca, the Tico Timer app features a chromatic color scheme that helps stimulate in itself, but the functionality of the app makes it a wonder to interact with. A great way to dictate the passage of time in any number of different scenarios, the Tico Timer app could potentially keep little ones visually stimulated just long enough to keep them from scurrying away.
