G-Girl LOVES this little clock. Frankly, I was a little surprised by just how much she likes it. She has made the DiscoverSounds Alarm Clock part of her daily naptime/bedtime routine. We have a real alarm clock set up in her room. Ideally if she wakes early she’s supposed to look at the clock and find out if it’s “wake up” time yet. She now sets the DiscoverSounds Alarm Clock on top of the dresser, right next to the real alarm clock. She turns the arm on the Little Tikes
I like that the Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Alarm Clock helps with number recognition, by repeating the names of the numbers each time the big hand is moved over top of them. G-Girl has already mastered the fine art of counting to twelve, but she still has fun running through the numbers with the clock, and proudly pointing out to me how she and the clock are counting together.
At 14 months old, Baby-G also enjoys the DiscoverSounds Alarm Clock. She loves the silly noises it makes. The alarm bells make her giggle. The buttons on top are large and easy for little hands to activate. I know soon enough she will be moving the clock hand around and learning her numbers.
The alarm noises that the clock makes can get annoying (to adults) with repetition. However, I like that the volume is relatively low. Compared to the other noisy battery operated toys we have around the house, the volume is just right on this one.
Overall I would recommend this toy. Both of my girls enjoy it and play with it regularly. The Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Alarm Clock is available at Walmart and Zellers stores across Canada, and sells for a rather reasonable suggested retail of $12.99.
