How could we focus on technology this week without talking about these handy devices. Any parent with a toddler out of the crib knows you'll try just about anything to avoid a 5 am wake-up.
So, here are five clocks that work in similar ways to let your child know when it's alright to get up and get out of bed. Do they work? The reviews seem to be mixed. Please fill us in if you've had a good or bad experience with them!
• KIDS' Sleep Classic: This one also has a night light with three brightness settings, different settings for nighttime and nap time, and an alarm that sounds like birds chirping and a rooster crowing. Visually, I think it's the cutest. It also comes in pink with a picture of a cow.
• Teach Me Time Talking Alarm Clock: From the same company as the OK to Wake Clock, but with added features for older children learning to read time. It has the OK to Wake color feature but is also a fully functioning alarm clock with snooze and a game to teach time.
• The Good Nite Light: This one is pretty simple: a sun for day time and a moon for sleeping.
