Hello Kitty Alarm Clock

How adorable is this Hello Kitty alarm clock?! The bedposts light up, there's an AM/FM radio and you can program the clock to start an alarm or the radio as a wake-up call. 

Available at target.com, $35.

Tot Clock

Recommended by Baby Gear Lab, this toddler clock has all the bells and whistles of a sleep-training alarm clock. There are five colors: Blue for BedTime, Yellow for WakeTime, Cyan for NapTime, Green for FunTime, and Red for Thinking Time/Timeout. The faceplate can be swapped out for another fun design (sold separately), it plays white noise, music and bedtime stories and has a weekend wake time, parental controls and more! 

Available on amazon.com, $50. 

Kids Digital Alarm Clock

With seven different colors, eight different ring tones, and an LED display, this is a great alarm clock for kids learning how to sleep alone. The colors can be used to help kids know when it's okay to get out of bed, and the ring tones can be used for sleep support when kids are trying to fall asleep at night. 

Available at amazon.com, $11.

Hatch Baby Sound Machine, Night Light & Time-to-Rise

The name says it all. This all-in-one device from Hatch is your sound machine, your night light and your sleep training alarm clock, so it'll take you from a newborn to a toddler who needs to learn when it's okay to get up. There's a toddler lock, it works with the Hatch Baby app via Bluetooth, so you can adjust the sound level, length of the sound, the brightness of light and more, all from the living room while baby sleeps. 

Available at amazon.com, $60.

Tommee Tippee Gro Clock

Tommee Tippee just launched their first line of sleep products called Gro. Expect swaddles, sleepsacks, light and sound sleep aids and this Gro Clock, which shows your kids awake and sleep times with displays of sun (to indicate awake time) and moon and stars (to indicate when it's time to sleep). The clock features an adjustable screen brightness and the option to set two different wake-up times: one for the weekday/weekend and the other for nighttime/naptime.

Available at amazon.com, $55.

Tock the Learning Clock

Preschoolers can now tell time… to the beat! With two learning modes, Tock the Learning Clock from Learning Resources chimes in with dance party tunes for every right answer and also prompts kids to match the hands to a digital display of the time. Extra perks include a nightlight and “okay to wake” light if you need to make sure dance parties don’t kick off too early.

Available at amazon.com, $17.

Puppy Training Clock

We're not sure what we like more about this alarm clock. The fact that it's an adorable puppy dog, that it has a hidden compartment so your kid can't mess with the settings, or that it's got both wake-up and a nap timer, which is perfect for weekends or days home from preschool. Set the time for when you want the green ball to light up, and watch your kid go from a too-early riser to a right-on-time tot. 

Available at amazon.com, $30.

MELLA All-in-One Clock

Using fun colors and facial expressions, this all-in-one clock from Little Hippo does it all: sleep trainer, nightlight, alarm clock and sound machine. Available in arctic blue, blush pink, bright purple and new color tropical teal.

Telly the Time Telling Clock

A fun face and the option of switching between digital and analog are just a few of the reasons why your kid will enjoy having Telly the Time Telling clock on his bedside table. There's also a quiz mode that asks kids to move the hands to the time requested, and a digital display lights up at night to keep a kid company. 

Available at amazon.com, $27.

OK to Wake Clock

This best-seller helps teach young kids about when it's okay to get out of bed. The 4.5" bedside clock glows green when it's okay to get up, a snooze option, a nap timer and fun animations.

Robot Clock

These friendly robots not only give kids a lesson in telling time—old school style—but the bright colors and geometric design are an easy way to add a stylish feature to your little one’s abode. They are also ideal for light sleepers because the clock operates without the usual tick-tock sound.

Available at amazon.com, $17.

Vintage Alarm Clock

We love this vintage alarm clock from Land of Nod. It comes in two colors (ivory and soft gray), and the traditional design will add charm to any room. The black numbers on a white face are easy to see, and there’s even a real hammer to ring the bell in the a.m.!

Available at crateandkids.com, $40.

Unicorn Alarm Clock

A little magic never hurts when it comes to the morning wake-up call. Made from soft silicone and plastic, the large digital display and easy-set buttons are perfect for kids who are just beginning to tell time.
