I am so glad that we now have the ZAZOO photo clock. This thing is a genius idea, it uses photos and pictures to help kids understand when it's wake up time and when it's bedtime.
"ZAZOO Photo Clock helps kids and parents get more sleep. It's an innovative sleep solution for children who wake too early or do not stay in bed all night. Parents can use the pre-programmed images or personalized options set to an alarm time, and the screen will give children visual cues when it's time to get out of bed. The photo clock grows with your child with features including a rotating photo frame, music, audio book, alarm clock, and more."
Now instead of telling my 4 year old at 8 o' clock it's bedtime, I can have her check her clock to look for the moon and stars. When they see the moon and stars, it's time to stay in bed, when the sun comes up they can get out of bed. I am really enjoying no more 4 AM wake-up calls and my bed being invaded by small people.
