Outline

This analog clock was created from a mother's viewpoint, with a mechanism to encourage an infant interested in clocks to tell the time. Based on advice from a Montessori educational expert on children's processes of understanding. The rectangular minute hand has a slit and a red tip to indicate the link between the 1 in the duodecimal system and the 5 minutes ("fun" in Japanese) on the sexagesimal scale, and also the link of the 2 with the 10 minutes ("pun" in Japanese). The product was named after the sequence of repeated "fun" and "pun."
