Sometimes we forget that our toddler has no idea what time it is. If it's an especially bright morning, she may be ready to rise and shine at 5 am. That's when we go in to explain to her, "It's still sleepy-time. PLEASE go back to sleep." Perhaps what we need is this little guy...
It's pretty much what it appears to be: a monkey clock. But ah, you parents get to set the sleeping and waking time, and the monkey will close his/her eyes accordingly. And the idea is- hopefully so will your child.
We like the idea actually because it gives your child a visual cue and teaches a little bit more about time, and the tester over at Babble says it worked- at least for one week.
