Getting up in the morning is not easy on any of us – well unless you are 3 year old then you seem to wake up before the sun very often. We need to find some way to let our toddler know that it was not time to leave her room till the sun came up but she would still creep in our room and wake me up to ask “is it morning yet”. I got the advice of other mommies and some had ordered special alarm clocks to help so I decided to get one too.
Today I am ordering American Innovative Teach Me Time! Talking Alarm Clock and Nightlight Here is the product description as listed on amazon.
American Innovative was founded to pursue the development of innovative new products that should exist, but don’t. “Products that make sense” is our motto and the execution of this philosophy can be seen throughout the company’s product line. Teach me Time! is the educational bedside clock that advances as your child grows. From ages 3-5 Teach me Time!’s color-changing nightlight teaches kids to stay in bed until its “Ok to wake!” The nightlight timer is programmed to turn on and off at any time of the day. Parents can customize the “Ok to wake” time, when the glow color changes from yellow to green…. “Green means Go!” From ages 5-7, the Teach me Time! interactive, talking game helps school age kids learn to tell time on both anaolg and digital clocks. The game is designed to create a dialog between you and your child about time, keeping you involved in the learning process. The Teach Me Time! game is fully adjustable – five difficulty levels allow you to restrict which times are displayed (for example, just “round” hours) so that you can start simple and progress in difficulty as your son or daughter matures. For children ages 7 and above, Teach me Time! is a fully functional alarm clock with a snooze function- just like mom or dad’s! Teach me Time! is white with interchangeable colored bezels (blue, pink & yellow included). Safety-certified external AC adapter and optional 2x AAA batteries (included). Price $39.95
The other one that many of my friends liked was the Good Nite Lite – The objective of the “Good Nite Lite” is to educate children to stay in bed until it is morning. Children between the ages of 3 and 5 years of age are just starting to grasp the concept of day and night and how it relates to regularly scheduled rest. The Good Nite Lite can assist children with better differentiating the concept of nighttime and daytime and reinforce the benefits of appropriate sleep patterns. The Good Nite Lite device itself is an innovative combination of a traditional night light and a built in timer that changes the visual display characteristics to reinforce a regular sleep pattern.
