really FUN but REALLY annoying to get started!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This clock is SO FUN.. I have to admit I was like a little kid waiting for it to arrive. I have a lot of trouble getting out of bed in the morning and this seemed ideal for someone like me (a chronic snooze button addict).
This clock is great! It's small and sleek, a definitely conversation starter.. BUT it's REALLY HARD to open the battery compartment! I'm not one to leave reviews on things... ever... but it was SO annoying to open that I felt compelled to warn people. Unlike another review I read earlier (w/the same compaint) I DO understand why it would screw on. I mean it's common sense, this clock is jumping around and bumping into things... But for such an alarm clock that is supposed to be of such good quality, they could have splurged on a decent screw! I am really handy and it literally took me almost an HOUR of fiddling (and SERIOUS frustration) to pry the battery door off. I ended up flinging it off with a letter opener.. not an ideal start. ANd I DO dread the day I have to re-charge my batteries :-/
BUT once it was up and running (literally) it was well worth it. THis alarm clock is funky and fun, and will defintiely get people like me OUT OF BED.
Also I have a pretty fluffy carpet and it has no problem running around my room.
BEware the deadly fake-screw, but in the end, SO FUN!

Did you use one of those tiny screwdrivers? I was able to get it opened and closed again in about 15 seconds.

The screw was fine for me. It is a bit small, but with an appropriate screwdriver it shouldn't take more than 10 seconds.
