Alarm clocks can help foster independence in children, so it is important to choose one that appeals to them.
OK to Wake Owl
The OK to Wake! Owl with night-light, music and nap timer is wonderful addition to the rambunctious toddler’s bedroom. Little one’s love to cuddle with this cute plush owl, and parents enjoy the extra alone time that it provides. The owl’s face illuminates to a soft green in the morning notifying the child that it is okay to get out of bed. At night the owl’s face glows a soft yellow, enabling it to double as a night-light. It also plays five soft lullabies and two groovy wake-up songs. The alarm clock features a nap time timer that will not interfere with the morning timer and the plush part of the clock is machine washable. The owl speaks five unique phrases that indicate how close it is to wake up time whenever his tummy is pushed. Pressing the button on the tummy will also reactivate the night light and lullabies.
