My cousin turns 5 next week and I have bought her a Barbie Teach the Time watch, but am now wondering if it was a waste. Is she too young for a watch? At what age do they become time aware?
DH tells me some of the children in his class (8yo) can't tell the time and not even ha;f of them wear watches. Should I get her something else instead?
bibiboo, dd1 is 6, almost 7, and she can tell me exactly when someone's supposed to have turned up, but hasn't. I think that's the perfect age - if I'd had been more concentrated with her I'm sure she would've got there earlier.
I bought a Winney the Poo watch when she was only 16 months old - obviously I don't expect her to be able to tell the time for a few year yet - but she kept playing with DH watch every morning (and it was very expensive), so I bought her own one. She loves it - put it on every morning after got dressed - AND she hasn't played with DH watch since....
