Timer Squalo / Cooking Timer

Timer Squalo
Timer Squalo

The Timer Squalo before being a Cooking Timer, is a toy. It is a little toy fish that when put into a container with water and winded up, floats and keeps swimming in circles. In this ludic experience the child plays with the timer in the container with water and still participates in the process of the making of the cake, since she/he is responsible to warn her/his mother when the fish stops swimming, indicating that the time is up.
It has a friendly face and can be found in several colors and graphics on its body including famous artist’s pictures that besides being beautiful, the paintings expands the target public to art appreciators.
