Biography of a Young Local Entrepreneur
An entrepreneur from the start, eight-year-old Billy Darnell ran the most successful
lemonade stand in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Now the president of his very own Zoobee Time Teaching
Watches, this Cox School of Business alum from Southern Methodist University in Dallas,
Texas, has been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine as a "Rising Star."
In 1994 at age 19, Darnell's entrepreneurial spirit moved him once again, this time in
an airport lobby while watching the Phil Donahue program. Donahue featured successful
business owners, including Dave Thomas of Wendy's, Debbi Fields of Mrs. Field's Cookies,
and Geoffe Walsh of Art Watch, Inc. Darnell envisioned a way to tie his two
passions-animals and business - together. That same summer, armed with tips of the trade
from a helpful Mr. Walsh, Darnell founded Zoobee's predecessor, Naturalistic Timepieces
(later, Safari Watches).
In 1997, Safari Watches became Zoobee Inc., and Darnell's watches were unveiled in zoo
gift shops and specialty stores across the U.S.
To meet customer demands, a specialty children's line was launched in 2001. These
colorful creations featured fun animal characters that fostered a young person's love for
Recognizing the importance of children learning the life skill of reading the analog
watch face, Darnell improved upon his existing children's watches by introducing the new
"Zoobee Time Teaching Watches" in 2002. The new watches are specifically
designed to aid parents and teachers in helping children learn the concept of time and how
to read analog time.
This one-of-a-kind line of children's time-teaching watches features easy-to-read
numbers on the watch face, color-coded watch hands, scratch-resistant casing, and a
durable band. New packaging provides tips for parents using this "educational"
new watch product and activities for children to enrich their learning. Nine colorful,
cuddly, animal character styles and three popular themes adorn the shelves of toy and gift stores across the

Here's What Our Customers Are
|"Thanks so much. Before I bought the watch, my son and I became frustrated
trying to teach him time. As soon as we got the watch, everything clicked. He could go out
and play and be home at a certain time and no more "mommy, what time is it?"
Carla Diamond - Mother
|"My 8 year old daughter is having trouble learning to tell time. Her tutor
said she read that part of the problem was that some children were unable to distinguish
between the minute and hour hands. Yesterday at a birthday party, a friend showed us a
watch she had bought that had different color hands and a butterfly face and said it had
helped her daughter tremendously in learning to tell time. I did a search on the Internet
and found your site. I also bought one for my younger daughter. Thanks!"
