About Alarm Clocks
Your child might not like it, but they’ve got to wake up early for school. It doesn’t matter what year your child is in, school always starts early. Your little one might not like waking up early, but at least they won’t sleep in thanks to the brilliant alarm clocks in this edit!
Licenced alarm clocks
Companies know how important it is for children to wake up early in time for school, which is why there are so many alarm clocks that have funky designs based on beloved children’s characters!
Whether they want to wake up to a galaxy far, far away or spend their nights dreaming of ice-skating with ice-bound princesses, if your child is a fan of something, our verified sellers have an alarm clock for them. Most of these alarm clocks replace monotonous beeps with custom alarm sounds based on their franchise, from quotable catchphrases to robotic squeaks and whistles.
Many of these alarm clocks are marketed towards very young children, so they incorporate features that parents of little children will find especially useful. For example, if your child is afraid of monsters lurking in the shadows at night, their nyctophobia will be calmed with the soft, glowing night light emanating from their new alarm clock.
Alternative alarm clocks
You might be under the impression that all alarm clocks are basically the same. You set the alarm time, and in the morning an incessant sound forces you awake. What else is there to know? Well, while all alarm clocks wake you up, they do them in different ways, and we’ve got the full spread of early morning wakers among our virtual shelves.
Some of the alarm clocks in this edit have built in radios which wake your child up with music rather than a beep. Most radio alarm clocks have a simple AM/FM receiver that will pick up the most popular music, current affairs and local stations, but others have the full spectrum of digital stations from around the world. So if your child thinks it’s a good idea to wake up to some bracing breakcore they should be able to find a station to tune into to match their tastes.
One the other end of the waking scale, there are some alarm clocks in this collection that wake your child up by using zeitgebers, parts of the natural world that affect our sleep patterns. For example, some of the clocks in this category slowly grow brighter and brighter, mimicking a natural sunrise. This helps your child wake up more naturally, and might make them less grumpy in the morning - it’s certainly worth a try!
