The OK to Wake! alarm clock is an ingenious take on the typical alarm clock. Our family calls it the anti-alarm clock, because it lights up and/or plays an alarm when it is okay to wake the parents or siblings. It is also equipped with a "nap" feature that allows parents to set a "nap timer" and the clock lights up when it is okay for the child to get up from naptime.

If your children are anything like mine, they are impossible to wake for school, but come the weekend, they're up before dawn, especially the little ones! This "alarm" clock lets the parents set the time when it is okay to wake mom and dad! The first few days we used it, our four year old still came and woke us up, but after the third day, when we kept telling her she needed to go back to bed and read books until her light came on, she stayed in her room. She now keeps her little alarm clock within easy sight and reach. And we're happy to report her enthusiasm in learning her numbers (she can only count to 10 so far) and how to tell time. The clock requires four AAA batteries which are not included.
