Wake Up Meow

catalarmclock.jpgDespite the fact that Laurel wakes up in time to her internal clock, she’s recently become interested in learning to tell time and asked for an alarm clock bedside. I wasn’t about to deter her interest in routine, and thus was thrilled to learn about the Chocolate Cake Club’s ultra cute talking alarm clocks for kids. Laurel loves the cat clock, which meows as its wake up call. And while we wish the alarm volume was adjustable for our (admittedly sensitive) ears (taping a little square of cardboard across the back speaker did the trick though), otherwise this clock wins our raves. The bright and cheery retro styling gives props to the predigital days, and the irresistibly cute face has boosted Laurel’s curiosity about learning to read the clock hands. We love that she now definitely knows when bed time is.
