Customers who viewed this item also viewed
Crayola, the leader in helping kids express their creativity, brings the world of music to kids. Kids will feel "all grown up" with their own radio and alarm clock. And parents will love the help in getting kids up and ready for school. This brightly coloured, inviting unit includes a clock radio with AM/FM radio that allows kids to wake to the radio, an alarm buzzer, or even a personalized message that they can record. The 10 second voice message recorder lets them record their own first-thing-in the-morning reminder, a favourite joke, or verse, or personal message! Replaceable patterns on the front panel let kids customize their own look.
Station presets make finding the right station easy. There's even a gradual wake system, and a snooze function for that little bit of extra sleep. An adjustable sleep timer lets kids drift off to music. There's even an auto-switching 3-colour night light. Back-up battery remembers the time and alarm setting in the event of a power failure, and will activate the alarm. AC power with AC adapter included. Back up power requires 4 AA batteries (not included).

The radio receiver is very weak - I live in a more rural area and cannot receive a single radio station on either AM or FM.
On the plus side, it does seem quite sturdy and the LCD panel has an adjustable brightness setting, which is a nice feature. It also looks very child-friendly and appealing.
1. Dual alarm so have one alarm for work days and one for the weekend.
2. Battery back up
3. Allows voice recording so you can shout 'WAKE UP!' at your wife/child each morning. It's funny the first time...
1. The night light turns your childs room into a disco. I wish there was more control over how fast it changes between colours for instance.
2. The backlight on the dimmest setting is still very bright
Interestingly it did 'crash' once like a computer where it hung and had to take the batteries out and put them back in again. Hasn't done it since.
Knowing what I know now I *still* would have purchased it. It's great.
It's got so many amazing functions, and there's an information leaflet just in case you get anything wrong. I did think it was a bit expensive, but it's so worth it now :)
Thank you so much, it was delivered on time too.
Trouble is, the one function that doesn't work well is the radio. The reception is terrible. I only wanted Radio 1, I didn't think that'd be a problem. The only station I can get is one local commercial radio station. I stripped the end of the aerial wire and wrapped it round a wire coat hanger to try and improve it but still nothing. I can only assume that the people not experiencing troubles with the reception, are quite content listening to their local and haven't tried any others.
Having said all that, the station I can get, comes through nice and clear with enough volume to wake me up though it's not particularly loud. If you're happy to wake up to the sound of tin pot radio then you might find this clock to be just fine.
One more thing, the nightlight. I keep it on as I don't find it a disturbance flashing away in the corner of the room, if I did mind, I would turn it off. It's not a problem but there's no middle ground. No solid light just random flashing. Not very suitable then for anyone wanting to use it as the nightlight it's described as.
Overall 2.5/5 (rounded down, as 3 stars really would be too much)
