3.0 out of 5 stars Funny...BUT....., November 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timex T156B Wake-up Shake and Wake Alarm Clock (Black) (Toy)
I bought this on a whim and it was well worth it.
It works as advertised and the voices are funny. A better way to wake up than an annoying buzzing or ringing sound for sure!
Some people are complaining that you can't change the voices to just buzz or ring...well, duh. that's the point of buying a talking clock, eh?

I'd recommend this if you have a sense of humor and want a good laugh.

It seems to be well made and looks tough enough to last (if you take care of it of course)

The numbers are big enough to see and setting the time/alarm is a piece of cake.

It's kind of a cute looking clock that stands out in the room. Yeah, it's funky looking. Like a friendly little tumor or jawbreaker that's gotten moldy. hehe

I don't get the complaints about it not being loud enough. How loud do you need it to be? It's plenty loud. If it were any louder, the voices would be shouting and that would scare the crap out of me! haha

As for it falling on the floor, well, it doesn't take a genius to figure you shouldn't let anything that's made of hard plastic to just fall on the floor repeatedly.
All you need to do is to set it somewhere where it won't fall and then it won't break. geez, really?

All in all, it's a good buy for a laugh and a different way of getting out of bed.

EDITED TO ADD:

It's now Feb 2013 and this alarm no longer jiggles.
It stopped maybe a month ago or so?

The alarm part works great still. It wakes me up with a different voice, loud and clear. I don't sleep through it (and I wear ear plugs!)
But no longer does this jiggle (and no I didn't drop it!)

The look of it has kind of worn on me, not in a good way. It is ugly. Looks like a tumor. lol
But it still wakes me up, so what the heck.
