So FUN

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Magnetic Sand Hourglass:

This hourglass is mesmerizing. Would like if it didn't have the warning about putting the hourglass down on the magnet when the base is full of the sand though. I hate the thought of forgetting and breaking it. Also seems a little delicate and prone to breaking in general.

I just knew I would love this little "magnetic" timer - and I DO! I can't help watching it form those constantly different mounds of filings! I facinates and actually calms me. It's also aesthetically beautiful and charming! I's a joy to have it!!!!!

    Cool product

    By 

    from Seattle

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about UncommonGoods Magnetic Sand Hourglass:

    This is a really unique idea. My 5 and 2.5 year olds are very interested in watching the ferrous sand pass through the hourglass.

    Unfortunately, I didn't realize it was only designed to allow sand to pass for one minute, which is not long enough for our uses. Also, the hour glass is a little dangerous and too dangerous for our household; if you set the full side of the glass on the magnetic and wood base, it could crack, and that's a deal breaker for me.
