I’m quite excited that E is starting to get to grips with telling the time. It’s a big milestone for little ones. The best way to mark it is of course to get him a special watch of his own. I’ve got a few criteria for picking great childrens watches:
Choosing Childrens Watches
- Don’t spend too much money. To be clear, I’m all for buying ‘quality’ products for kids but when you expect a 6 year old to wear something everyday there’s a good chance of it getting lost or broken so this probably won’t be the last watch you buy.
- Make it easy to read. As adults we’re used to Roman numerals or just dashes or dots on a watch face. However it’s best for kids to start off with clear numbers are the way to go.
- Add a bit of fun. Like all new skills, kids will pick up time telling quicker if their watch holds their interest because it’s colourful and fun.
You’ll find lots of options out there. Basically, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Here are some of my favourite childrens watches available now:
