Not a great clock for a young kid
on April 23, 2013
I purchased this clock so my kid (3, now 4) could tell when it was late enough to leave his room in the morning. We don't need an alarm function now, though it would be nice to have the option when the kid doesn't get up before sunrise...
The way the clock works is that you have to select an alarm time, and the alarm is then set by pushing one of the buttons on the top of the clock, instead of flipping a switch underneath. So if my kid touches/plays with the clock at all, he will inevitably turn on the alarm function inadvertently. The alarm sound is a loud unpleasant beep, which lasts for a long time. Then we hear an incessant beeping from his room, which is just plain unwelcome. I wish it was designed differently.
