Watching time pass you by doesn't have to be a monotonous task.

Whilst your normal hour glass lets the grains of sand flow and rest at the bottom, your Magnetic Sand Timer creates quite a different picture and can create a really neat desk toy for visitors to marvel at.

With the Magnetic Sand Timer, the filings are magnetised by the base and come together to form uniquely chaotic shapes as they fall through the timer with each turn of the glass!

Without the base, your Sand Timer will work just like a normal hourglass, but put it on the magnetic base to create a different magnetic structures each time!

Times for 30 seconds.
Dimensions: 13cm tall x 8cm wide (including base).


Magnetic Sand Timer Reviews

Happy so far

Something different for an adult son who doesn't really want a gift.

Pretty cool to watch

By: Andrew Beeston on 5 January 2022
The magnetic sand timer is fun to watch. I think the photo on the box makes it look like it magnetizes better than what it actually does.

Fast postage, excellent quality

Magnetic Egg timer looked great as described, in fact looked better than I thought it would. Can watch the magnets form shapes for ages. Doesn't get old. Recommend.

This was the perfect gift for my workplace "Secret Santa" event! A solicitor is hard to buy for at the best of times, but she absolutely loved the magnetic sand timer!

Stocking Filler

By: Andrew on 2 January 2018
Service from Cool Things is awesome. The Magnetic Sand Timer is 30 seconds. The picture is what you get. It is fun to play with for a couple of minutes, more fun for "desk/office visitors". The glass feels strong enough for the job but it is not for young kids. The glass is real glass. The magnet is so strong the timer will not tip over once the iron has flowed through to the bottom. There is nothing wrong with it but it is not amazing either.

The item was as described and delivery was fast and efficient. I thought the postage could have been a bit more reasonable, but all in all was satisfied with the service.

Great value - stocking filler

Was packaged really well looks more expensive than it is - great stocking filler for my older son (always hard finding cheaper items for him)
