zazoo kids :: photo clock {giveaway}


A couple weeks back it became apparent that we needed to move bedtime a bit earlier for our girls.  While changing bedtime (and consequently wake up time) for the 16 mo. old isn't that difficult, convincing the 3 1/2 year old to go to bed was... exhausting.

After fighting this battle for a few days our ZAZOO photo clock showed up in the mail and it was promptly set up for use.  Basically the ZAZOO photo clock is an multi-media photo alarm clock for kids that visually shows them if it's awake time or sleep time.  The ZAZOO photo clock can be used for older kids as well, but the ingenious part is that it really does help get younger kids to recognize when they should be in bed from when it's okay to be awake.

From day one our 3 1/2 year old Michaela has been excited to use this clock.  In fact, she didn't argue with use "But I'm not tired..." when it was bedtime because her ZAZOO photo clock was showing her photo for night time.  We have yet to do so, but you can also personalize the ZAZOO photo clock images with photos of your own.

We have the Pink Stars (above right) which is perfect for our girls, but for those of you who need something more boyish or even gender neutral there's a total of 5 different design options.  A neat feature that I didn't expect was that the ZAZOO photo clock glows at night, thus eliminating our need for an additional nightlight in the room.

There's a lot of other cool features with the ZAZOO photo clock that we haven't even used yet because our girls aren't of an age where they'd be necessary.  You can learn more about all these great features and details on the ZAZOO KiDS website and the below video.

  25. I really like the idea of having a naptime setting and a nighttime setting. That would be really great! (and my son would really like the music feature!)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like the nap-time setting which can be different from the night-time setting. Having it be able to play music is very cool too. We are getting ready to have another little baby, so this would be great to have a new clock that plays music in our big girl room and leave the iPOD in the nursery for her little brother!

    I love ALL the many functions. Watching the video on the site, it's clear that this clock really WILL grow with your child with huge variety of functions available. I like how it starts out very simple; pictures for night and day; which every toddler can understand!
