Here’s something parents with young kids can use. If you’re like me, on the weekends your young children take great joy in leaping out of bed on the same (way too early) weekday schedule. So while you try to sleep the TV is blaring the latest Cartoon Network shows. Or even worse the kids come bounding into your room at 5 am demanding breakfast. The Teach Me Time alarm clock has a solution. You set the alarm to change to a glowing green color when it is time for the kids to wake. You no longer have to explain to younger children (who may not fully grasp the concept of time) that they should only get out of the bed when “the little hand is on the 7″. The Teach Me Time! will glow green indicating that it’s ok to get up. In addition the kids can use the clock as a nightlight and learn time from the clock by using the talking time-teaching feature .
Here’s what Teach Me Time looks like in the nightlight mode:
The controls on the back:
