I would love for everyone to meet Rodney, the newest addition to our family. He is a Robot Projection Clock with an Alarm feature and projects images. He takes 3 AA batteries that are easy to install and my 6 year old loves him.
Please note: It says ages 5 and up on the box. But this is not a toy.
The Robot Projection Clock with Alarm feature comes with the clock, 3 AA batteries, instruction manual and a small Philips head screwdriver. It is easy to set up and only takes a few minutes. The easy to follow instructions walk you right through it. It has twin pivoting lenses on the top of his head that project images as well as time inside the image. Please note: The instruction manual says 3 AAA batteries, but the box says 3 AA. This product requires 3 AA batteries. This product does not come with an AC adapter but one is available for purchase.
I was going to try this product and then box it up as a Christmas gift for my child. That did not happen. I seriously needed my 6 year olds opinion. I set the date/time and then set the Alarm for 7 am. I let him choose the display he wanted for his ceiling. It has 4 options from which to choose. There is a butterfly, flower, pink heart and a moon and stars display. He choose the moon and stars. It projects really nicely onto the ceiling. I was surprised at how bright it was considering the clock was on one side of the room but it projected to the other side. The distance from the clock to the image was about 8 feet. This is adjustable by moving his eyes. The projection comes from the left eye. Then the other eye projects the time into the center of the image. I opted not to project the time because that is the way he wanted it. I went back to turn the projection off after he fell asleep and it had shut off on its own, haha. That is an additional advantage to this alarm clock.
In the morning the alarm sounded at 7 am with a constant beeping noise. I got up and hit the alarm button and it immediately stopped. The instructions do not tell you how to turn off the alarm. But for me this is a no-brainer. I simply pressed the alarm off button on the front of the robot, simple. We have been using this product for 3 days without any problems whatsoever. It is still brightly lit up and running great.
In ending I have to say that this clock is a great investment as a child's first clock. It has a fun design and offers your child something that lets him feel like he is getting something out of it, besides it waking him up every morning. For my child it was a soothing experience as it gave him something to concentrate on as he was falling asleep. I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. All opinions are my own. If you are interested in purchasing this nifty little guy or would like more information you can check them out here Robot Projection Clock with Alarm Feature.
