We primarily use this timer during bed time. Our kids used to wake up at 4:30 to 6:30 and come into our room again and again, with no concept of 'Wake Up Time' (as most kids I realize). We set the timer to stay green until 7am, it turns yellow for 2 minutes (a warning it is almost wake up time) then it turns red, signalling wake time. If they have to use the bathroom, or need us for any reason, they know it is ok to leave the room. But in normal situations if it is not red, they go back into the bedroom and wait until it turns red. There was a learning curve for us and the kids, but this item works great! I would recommend the adapter, it requires 4 AA batteries for the lights, and lithium batteries for the clock, which burn down fast.

I used this product to manage me as a teacher with my mini lessons in Readers Workshop. I also used this timer to manage student workstations and to help children budget time while completing independent work. Unfortunately, like many other posters have mentioned, it can be unreliable. In June it worked just fine; however, when I returned to the classroom in August it was no longer working. Weird, right?! I thought it was the batteries so I replaced them with 4 brand new batteries. It still didn't work. After looking over the manual it said you would probably need to change the backup batteries when changing the other batteries. I searched high and low for the LR44 batteries (aka backup batteries) and finally found some. I replaced those as well and it still will not power on. This is very frustrating for me because I'm a classroom teacher and do not have the budget to keep replacing the timer each school year. :( The bottom line is that I would only recommend this device to somebody prepared to replace it yearly. I'm not that person because I already spend so much of my own money on my classroom and students.

    For the last several years, at Christmas, LR has given employees the opportunity to purchase products from EI and LR at a substantial discount. My grandchildren attend a local preschool, and I frequently took this opportunity to purchase $500 - $1,000 (list) in materials for the school. The Director and teachers were always so grateful to get the materials and remarked how engaging they were. Thank you Rick, Donald Collura, and LR.

      This set has made it through all 3 of my children. I home school my kids and have used it as a hands on way to learn beginning letter sounds of words. The pieces are made from a very thick cardboard that has really withstood heavy wear over time.

        My two children (age 3 & 6) love this. We use it for eye spy games with the picture cards then they have to put the pictures in the correct soup tin and also to help learn letter sounds. They get very competitive when playing with this together! There are so many ways to use this game. Very educational and fun!

        Unfortunately, the lights (the reason I purchased this device) are not working. I'll contact the manufacturer and hope for the best. Having been involved with the electronics industry somewhat, I cannot understand why such a simple concept as a this device is having the issues it seems to have, based upon the reviews I've read.

        How these people respond will be an indicator to me of the quality and integrity of the this company. An announcement of improvements on this page would also be welcome. I'm a teacher and know many teachers; it would be nice to have this company as a resource for me and for them. Get a clue, my friends.

        Comments about Learning Resources Alphabet Soup Sorters:

        We received as a gift on Christmas, purchased from Young Explorers. At first, we used it to signal how much time toddler had left before transition to next activity. Then, we used it for potty training and had the timer set for every 30 minutes. We were using it constantly for a month before we had to change the batteries. Then a couple of weeks later, it seemed to malfunction again (a signal we thought was time for another battery change). The digital display disappeared and the green and yellow lights remained on, and replacing thet batteries did not fix the problem. I really liked the timer when it worked, but now I'm hoping that there's a similar product out there that's more durable.

        This is a terrible timer. It is hard to use and the menu, start and enter buttons all have to be pushed really hard to get them to even work. I spend more time trying to change the settings than actually getting the timer to work. Very disappointing as I cannot use it in my classroom.

          Comments about Learning Resources Alphabet Soup Sorters:

          I am very disappointed with this product. The buttons are either not working or too sensitive and you pass by the time you want to set and then have to start the programming over. It would have been so easy to put a simple timer set button and then a start time button but no! You have to go through many steps of programming each time you want to set a new time. Even to simply start the already programmed time you have to push a series of buttons! So annoying! And to remember the right sequence, it is not easy....
          definitely not worth the price.
