KID’Sleep Clock by Claessens’Kids Switzerland

[Update: Click to read my full review. I own this clock now and my 3-year-old daughter is using it.] 

I don’t know if I need a KIDS’Sleep Clock, but I want one.

For babies, it is a cute night light. The clock face has no numbers or clock hands. It’s just the illuminated picture of a cute sleeping bunny.

Marketing image of two KID'Sleep clock faces, one a sleeping bunny and the other a split face showing a sleeping and a playing bunnyFor toddlers, it is a wake-up indicator. At the appointed wake-up time, configured by you, an illuminated sleeping bunny goes dark and a sunshine bunny lights up.

The clock lets your toddler know when he’s supposed to wake up. In theory, when he stirs at 5 a.m. he knows to stay in bed and go back to sleep. I have no idea if the ploy works, but wow! Wouldn’t you buy this thing just to find out whether you can normalize your sleep? You know, at the expense of having your wide awake kid stare at his ceiling until you get your lazy butt out of bed.

For older kids, the clock can be configured to emit bird chirps, making it a true wake-up alarm. A small digital clock display is built into the clock.

If you hate rabbits, alternate clock faces are available featuring a mouse or red teddy bear.

KID’Sleep is made by Claessens’Kids Switzerland. It is sold in the UK and North America by Arf Kids. The two sites have a slightly different set of information and pictures.

P.S. Source credit for this and yesterday’s post about the Boardbug baby monitor go to my wife, who is researching a toddler-safe wristwatch for Little Miss. My daughter has begun insisting our watches are hers to wear. As she says, "My tick-tock!"

    There are a number of these for sale on Ebay now. Just search for Kid’sleep, and you’ll find them, and best of all, they’re willing to ship to North America!

    Question- Even if you buy this- can you use it in the US? Will it work with our electrical outlets?

    Can someone explain to me how does the kids sleep work? I know that you have to push set ones and set up the hour. Then you have topush set again and set up what? According to the instructions I have to save 4 different hours but I do not know which and under which order. Thanks for the help!!!
