Green Means GO!
This convenient (for parents, that is) feature was inspired by homegrown solutions to the problem of young children bounding out of bed at very early hours. If you've ever taped over the minutes digits of an old digital alarm and instructed your son or daughter to not get up until "this number is a six", then you're one of many (sleep deprived?) parents who understands the need for the "OK to Wake!" dual-color nightlight. Teach Me Time's! night-light has flexible timer settings. You define the time that it turns on in the evening (soft yellow glow), the time that it changes color from yellow to green ("OK to Wake!") and the time that it turns off completely. If desired, the color-changing option is easily disabled.
Let's Learn to Tell Time!
Teach Me Time! features an interactive, talking time-teaching game designed to help school-aged kids learn to tell time on both analog and digital clocks. The large, bright LCD display is capable of displaying the time in either format or both at once. More specifically, the Teach Me Time! game works very much like the time-teaching tools that grade school teachers use in the classroom: First ask your child to press the left toe button to display a random time on the analog portion of the display (digital time hidden). Next press the right toe button to have Teach Me Time! speak the answer and display the correct time in digital format. The game is designed to foster a dialog between you and your child about time, keeping you involved in the learning process. The Teach Me Time! game is fully adjustable - five difficulty levels allow you to restrict which times are displayed so that you can start simply and progress in difficulty as your son or daughter matures. For example, level 1 only displays "round" hours, level 2 adds the half-hours, etc. Full manual override provides complete control of the game by the parent, if desired, allowing any specific time to be hand-entered.
"Grown-Up" Alarm Clock
For older children that want to get up "on their own", Teach Me Time! is a fully-functional alarm clock with snooze - just like mom and dad's! A fun "ding-a-ling" bell sound takes the place of the more traditional beep-beep-beep. When sounding, the left toe button snoozes the alarm for ten minutes and the right toe button silences the bell.
We tried to make Teach Me Time! as flexible as possible to meet the needs of parents everywhere. Teach Me Time! comes with three interchangeable colored bezels (blue, pink and yellow). Use the "Display" button to show just the analog clock face, just the digital clock or both at once (to help kids make the association between the two). Volume and brightness settings are also fully adjustable. Teach Me Time! comes with its own AC power adapter and has optional battery back-up for time and settings. Two AA batteries are required (not included) for back-up functions.
- Kid-Friendly Shape, Parent-Friendly Design. Kids love the shape! "Toe" buttons are fun to press. Large, friendly display with animal icons and clear, friendly female voice. Parents appreciate the function and form. Concealed "parental" control panel provides access to clock settings and instructions. Interchangeable LCD bezels (blue, pink & yellow) provide options for any room decor.
- "OK to Wake!" Dual-Color Night-Light Timer. The night-light timer is easily programmed to turn on and off at any time of day. Parents customize the "OK to Wake!" time at which the night-light color turns from yellow to green.
- Teach Me Time! Talking, Interactive Game. Teach Me Time! is an educational, talking game that parents can play with their child. Difficulty level is adjustable as children learn. Full manual override provides complete control of the game by the parent, if desired.
- "Grown-Up" Alarm Clock. Teach Me Time!'s built-in alarm clock features a fun ding-a-ling wake-up sound and a 10-minute snooze function, just like mom & dad's!
- AC-powered with Optional Battery Backup. Teach Me Time! runs on AC power using the included adapter. Optionally, time and all settings are retained automatically in the event of a power failure using two AA batteries (not included).
- Other Flexible Options. Voice volume is adjustable (Off, Low, Medium, High), LCD backlight/night-light brightness is also adjustable (Low, High). LCD display options allow parents to select analog (clock hands) display, digital clock (numeric) display or both together.
"OK to Wake!" – What it is & How it Works
The "OK to Wake!" green light is a simple, easy-to-understand, visual indicator that informs your toddler when it's time to come visit mom and dad. Kids quickly learn to doze back to sleep or to play quietly in their room until "Green means GO!" Here's why it works. Toddlers enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that comes with completing a job well done. "OK to Wake!" is something that can be completed successfully every day and is positively reinforced by the greatest reward of all - coming to see you!

My toddler loves this clock - and so do I!

I've had this clock for a couple weeks now, and I've been very pleased with it. Some of the reviewers said that it's too bright or not bright enough or whatever. I disagree; it's just about perfect! I tweaked some of the default settings (doing so was very intuitive) so that the 'feet' buttons don't do anything (so that my son, just over two years old, isn't tempted to get out of bed to play with them) but once he's older, they can work to control the actual alarm and also speak the time. It even has a time 'game' to help him learn. Cool =)
We got more sleep!

We have had this clock for 2 years now, and it works really well and worth every penny. What the best part is, no sound alarm, 'Clock turns green'. It was good because sometimes our daughter would wake up in the middle of the night, and she would wake us up. Now, she consistently comes out at the appropriate time.
These are magic clocks!

I have two of these clocks, and they're the only thing keeping my 3 and 5 year old in bed in the morning. Before these clocks, they would climb out of bed at the first sign of daybreak and come find me, asking if it was time to get up. Now they know to stay in bed until the clock turns green. I'm really thankful I have these clocks.
Great for wakeup feature

I don't normally write reviews but I am so excited I found this clock! My 2.5 yo has been getting me up between 5 and 6 for weeks and I keep telling him 'its not time to get up yet' but it occurred to me that he has no way of knowing when it is 'ok to get up' since he obviously can't read a clock yet. I didn't want to set an alarm in case he did happen to sleep in one morning. Then I found this clock that turns green when you set up the ok to wake feature. Took him a couple days but by day 3 I got up a little after 7 (I set his ON time to 7) and he was standing by his door saying 'mommy look its green its ok to get up now!!'. I was shocked!
Very educational and adorable!

Our daughter already knew about the 'Teach me time' since the discussion of purchase and order from 'BN.com'. The idea to have a talking alarm clock really liked the five-year-old girl. She remembered and asked about it all 1.5 months of delivery (St. Petersburg). Now, this is a subject of adoration, which exceeded all expectations. We saw that using a game function, much easier to teach 5-year-old Russian child correct answer to the question: 'What time is it?' As expected, the child is more organized and quickly gets up and going to kindergarten. It is an excellent purchase!
