Helps Families Get Better Sleep!
How does it work?
At bedtime, a soothing yellow night-light comforts children as they fall asleep. In the morning, it glows green when it's okay for children to get out of bed! If children wake up before the green light comes on, they know to go back to sleep or quietly play in their room until 'green means go!'
Why does it work?
Children enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that comes with completing a job well done. And, OK to Wake! is something that can be completed successfully every day! The clock also features a convenient nap timer and alarm clock with snooze!

Here's the thing: You have to know your goals with the clock.
1. There are all the cute cradle ones with owls and stuff, but I don't need my kid having something he takes to bed with him and will just mess around with till he screws up the wake timer. So I like the ones that stay OUT of the bed.
2. I also want something that can be plugged in, because screw changing batteries all the time.
3. I also see TONS of complaints about the nightlight with this. Okay, if your kid sleeps completely in the dark, this one isn't for you, unless you're willing to do all the crazy re-wiring that people have discovered how to do. My kid slept with a nightlight BEFORE getting this clock, so I was thinking "2 birds with one stone!" and got rid of the nightlight, and just have this! I love it! It sits on the nightstand by his bed and gives the perfect amount of warm yellow light so I can see him if I check on him in the middle of the night, and he isn't scared of the monsters under the bed.
4. I saw lots of reviews with some clocks only staying green for like 20 min and shutting off. This bad boy stays on for a full 2 hours. So if your beloved actually sleeps in PAST the green light, they have plenty of time to wake up later and still see it's green and okay to go bug mom now.
5. General stuff: after the green goes off, the yellow stays off for a long time too. It seems to come on around 7:00 pm, which is about the earliest time anyone might be putting their kids to bed, if you're freaking that lucky. So at nap time, there is no extra night light, which is fine- it differentiates the 2 sleeping experiences. I don't even remember if this has a nap timer... I think it does... I'm not into it yet so I can't give opinions there. The only thing I really care about anyway are those precious minutes in the morning!
6. Ability to mess with the controls: I was worried about this one- I have an explorer. When we first got the clock, he was curious and looked all around it. He was able to open the flap in the back, and pushed the buttons, but nothing happened because everything has a "hold this button for 3 seconds to activate" quality. So he got board and didn't care about the buttons anymore after that! He'll run up and push the foot button now and then that speaks the time, but who cares!? That's great! That's the start of us talking about time!
7. Does. It. Work.... ?? YES!!!! It took 2 days for him to understand the concept which we introduced gently. Occasionally he will still get up early and get us, and sometimes he will either sleep till it's green and get up with the green, or even sleep a bit past the green, but regularly he wakes up 10-20 minutes before it turns green, and plays peacefully in his bed/around his room until it turns green!!! And oh lord when it turns green he is SO EXCITED and throws things around screaming "IT'S GREEN IT'S GREEN" and we come to the door and he's so excited and we're so excited and it's just a great start to the morning!
SOOOoooo, that's why I like this one. Figure out what you need and what works for your baby. This is perfect for me. Enjoy!
1. To "turn off" the backlighting on the feet/buttons: Unscrew the circuit board for the first back-lit foot/button. Apply a small piece of black electrical tape, cut to size with scissors, over each of the 2 yellow LEDs on the circuit board. Make sure the tape does not overlap too far towards the center of the board, as this may interfere with the button functionality. Reinstall circuit board/button assembly. Verify the button still functions. Repeat for the other side.
2. To dim or turn off the backlighting on the clock face: On the main circuit board there are 2 wires that come off of the main circuit board and wrap around the side to the LED(s) that function to backlight the clock face. There is some existing factory-applied black tape wrapped around the wires at the edge. Clip 1 of the 2 wires.
a) For NO backlighting: Just bend the ends of the cut wire so they are not touching each other or any other parts of the circuiting. Wrap electrical tape around them if you want to be safe.
b) For DIMMED backlighting: Solder a resistor between the 2 clipped wire ends. (I am not an expert at soldering, so please excuse the sloppiness in the photos.) The choice of resistance will depend on how bright you want the backlighting of the clock face. I found that a 2kohm resistor worked well and allowed the clock face to be readable in a very dark room. You will probably need to have a variety pack of resistors on hand to test the brightness, probably ranging between ~500ohm to ~5kohm. They don't come in exact values, but it does not need to be exact. That is, you won't see the difference between 470ohm and 500ohm.
In the attached photos, both the modifications listed above have been performed, with the 2k resistor on the clock face LED. The exposure of the photos makes the backlighting appear brighter than it really is. Hope this helps. It appears that this is going to be a great alarm clock for our son. I will try to update in the future.
***update*** it worked for a little bit but now we are back to the usual issues. Also it is too easy for the power cord to pull out from the back of the clock if your child should decide to pick it up. Then the pain of having to reprogram it. Should also have something to help keep them from opening the back panel and changing the settings. Otherwise the button you can push to tell you the time has taught him how to tell time so I will keep it at 4 stars.**)
I also can't work out how to leave the sound on for the buttons (so he can hear what time it is when he presses foot buttons) without the alarm sounds being on.
Unfortunately the box was thrown out, otherwise I would return this.
In short, not very user friendly.
