Helping Small Children Sleep Better... So Parents Can Too!

Both of my girls share a room, and both of my girls seem to have the same issue when it comes to bedtime. A fear of the dark! I also have a few issues with my daughters when it comes to the morning routine, fear of sleeping in! Why is it that kids just get up and out of bed at 5 or 6 in the morning and feel the need to wake up Mommy and Daddy so gosh darn early? Regardless of if the sun is up or not, when they wake up they have to make it a point to make sure we know they’re up and at it with a loud GOOD MORNING MOMMY, even though, technically it is morning, it’s nowhere near the time to get up yet.

We did have a really cute clock for them in their room at one point where it would tell them if it was sleepy time or time to get up out of bed, with a really tiny digital time accompanied by it, but that alas got broken and chucked out with the garbage. When I heard about My Tot Clock I was so happy to see something else on the market, something a little better that would not only help me with bedtime/morning routines, but help out with discipline and teaching time (without a digital clock).

Let me explain to you just what the My Tot Clock is. For children ages 2+ the My Tot Clock lets kids know when it’s time to go to sleep and time to wake up. The face on the clock changes colors, it illuminates to blue when it’s time to be sleeping, and illuminates to a yellow light when it’s time to get out of bed. The great thing is, with the My Tot Clock even with the issues of being afraid of the dark, we now have a built in nightlight as well as it glows a nice blue light all night till morning when it changes to yellow (you obviously set the times you want this to happen, it’s like a colorful alarm clock).

The fun thing is not only learning to tell time on a real clock without the digital help, but the My Tot Clock also tells bedtime stories, sings lullabies, has music you can use as a wake up alarm, and you can even have white noise in the background for those little ones that need some extra help getting to sleep. Another feature that I think is just genius is the extra colors for things you can set timers on with the clock. For instance if your child is still taking naps you can set a nap timer in which the blue light will illuminate, or if you need to take your little one to a time out, just set the timeout timer and a red light will illuminate, need some encouragement maybe for something like potty training? A green light will illuminate through the clock for some encouragement, which lets the kids know they’ve done something positive or its time for some fun.

The My Tot Clock is an all around great invention to keep parents like me happy (our kids now know not to leave their room till at least 7 a.m.), help with discipline, bedtimes/naptimes, and show some positivity while teaching time all at once!

I don’t think you can find a better clock suitable for kids than the My Tot Clock, both of my girls have been raving about it and using it daily since the day we got it out of the box, one of their favorite things to do is take turns with their faceplates.

When we found out we’d be reviewing the My Tot Clock the girls decided on the Princess Faceplate which they were super happy with, but the clock also came with the Night Sky faceplate as well, so they take turns and switch the faceplate every week or so. The My Tot Clock also comes with an AC Adapter which is one of my other favorite features, no more batteries! But if you do need to use them, it does also take 4 AA batteries (which are included). And just so you’re not left out on any of the fun or features, the My Tot Clock comes with its first Tot Clock Treasures (story Cartridge) called Welcome To Children's Dreamland. With a variety of faceplates and Tot Clock Treasures your child will never get ‘bored’ with their My Tot Clock, and as a parent you’ll be wondering why you didn’t purchase one sooner.
