#1. The LittleHippo Mella Ready To Rise
This particular best selling kids alarm clock is actually designed to help keep your children in bed a lot longer so they can get their precious beauty sleep.
It is not only an alarm clock but a sleep trainer which actually helps kids to understand when it is time for bed by using sounds, facial expressions, lights etc. This will help your kids to not only get more sleep but also you!
This is our personal favorite for young children.
1. Beautiful Design
This alarm clock has an absolutely beautiful and modern design which has been patented and featured in popular publications such as Yanko, Mashable etc.
2. Extremely Strong & Well Constructed
One of the most important things you need to look for when purchasing just about anything for kids is the strength of construction. With the LittleHippo Mella, you don’t have to worry about it breaking apart or being toxic as it is well made from silicone and child safe ABS.
3. Color Coded Lights
Next, the alarm clock is programmed for sleep, play and wake times. During the sleep time, the clock will “go to sleep” with your kids and you can even put on a night light function if needed.
The play function starts about half an hour before it is time to wake up and the clock actually glows yellow so that your child will know they can
4. Additional Features
There are also many other features such as alarm clock sounds according to the modes, sounds that the alarm can make to promote sleep, a nap timer and more.
One of the biggest benefits of this alarm clock is that it provides sleep training for your kids and as a result, you will be able to sleep comfortably throughout the night and get more sleep than before.
It is also a device that will grow with your child as they get older. For example, as your child gets older you can use a silent timer and use it to time specific activities.

#2. Bunny Kids Alarm Clock
This kids alarm clock is quite charming with its bunny ear design that any kid would love. In addition, we found several other clocks in the shape of animals including a turtle, owl, and kitten by different manufacturers.
We chose this particular brand because it is quite affordable and is an Amazon Choice selection. It comes in three colors: blue, pink and green.
This clock is so cute and great for toddlers.
1. Strong Magnetic Absorption
Due to its strong magnetism, you can place this clock on anything iron and it will stay in place. It can also be placed lying down or standing on a desktop.
2. Numerous Ring Tones & Levels
This alarm clock has 6 ring tones as well as 5 levels of sounds which can be adjusted so you don’t have to worry about a monotonous sound.
3. Smart Functions
It is designed to save energy and the face will appear blank after 10 seconds until you activate it. It can be activated through touch or by making any sound that is over 56 dB.
4. Variable Display
Next, you can choose to display either in a 12 hour or 24 hour clock mode. Additionally, you can also choose to display temperature in either degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit. You can also decide to have the main display only show the time or you can allow it to show the date, time as well as temperature.
One of the best benefits of this alarm clock is that it can truly help your kid to stay in bed. You can put on either a 30 minute or 60 minute timer before bed that will help them to wind down.
During this period the alarm clock will emit a relaxing breathing pattern light that will sooth them to sleep.
I.Code Time To Wake Alarm Clock
This is an all in one alarm clock that will quickly and easily teach your kids when it is time to sleep and wake up with easy to understand icons, natural sounds, lights and colors.
1. Uses Icons & Colors
There is actually a sun and moon icon on the display of the clock which will help your children know when it is time to wake up and go to sleep. As a result, no matter how young your kids are, they will easily understand that they can only get out of bed when the moon icon disappears and the sun icon is on. You can also customize different colors to accompany each icon.
2. Options For Waking Up
With this particular alarm clock, you don’t have to deal with a sudden and loud waking up sound. Instead, you can choose a particular wake up light without a sound so you children are not suddenly woken up. Alternatively, you can set the alarm with both sound and light or just sound alone.
This alarm clock will help your kids to enjoy much better sleep, especially when there are 28 sounds you can choose from to help them fall and stay asleep to. Some of these sounds include rain, white noise, ocean, frog, cow etc.
Kids Alarm Clock By LIELONGREN
Next, we have a very modern looking bear paw kids alarm clock which actually has a color changing night light that can change between 5 appealing colors.
1. Simulates Sunrise & Sunset
This alarm can simulate a sunrise or sunset according to the times that you set for those events. For example, when it is sunrise, the light in the clock will actually slowly get brighter until it reaches full brightness and the alarm will sound. Then, when it is sunset, the light will slowly get dimmer until it goes out.
2. Touch Sensor
Next, the alarm has a touch sensor to the top of it which you can press to change between 9 different brightness levels. You can also press the color button to select which color you’d like the light to be and these color options include blue, purple, pink, green and white.
3. Rechargeable Battery
This clock can work for up to 6 hours on its 1800 mAh battery which is rechargeable.
This is a great alarm for a baby, toddler and young kids as it helps with sleep training and can also be used for improving study habits. It is also a smart alarm where you can have different wake up, sleep and even snooze settings according to the day of the week, weekends etc.
#5. Clocky Alarm Clock On Wheels
The final alarm clock that we will look at is the Clocky model which is quite different from the rest since it is actually on wheels.
This is the best alarm clocks for heavy sleepers (both kids and even adults) since the clock will actually roll away and hide as the alarm goes off so you actually have to get off the bed to find and take it off.
I actually first saw this on Price Is Right as a prize and this peaked my interest! This would be great for older children.
As mentioned above, this alarm clock is on wheels which really separates it from the rest of alarm clocks. It can not only roll but also jump up to 3 feet from a nightstand.
Clocky can move easily on carpet, wood, tile and other flooring types and is great for deep sleepers as it not only moves so you’re forced to wake up but it also has an extremely loud alarm.
This is a great alarm for kids, teenagers and adults who often abuse the snooze button. Of course, you can set the snooze for up to 8 minutes or you can turn it off completely.
