I really love the design of the clock - it looks so cool - but it has two practical issues that prevent me from giving it 5 stars. Firstly, when you turn the alarm on the clock beeps. If, like me, you come to bed after your partner it annoys her by waking her up when this happens. Secondly, when you want to check the time in the night you need to activate the light by pressing the head down. Again, this is fine, but it beeps out load, so you run the risk of waking anyone with you. Possibly might be because this is not designed for anyone other than children but spoils what would have been a perfect present otherwise. Having said all that, I still love it.
