Pamela Gonzalez is the inventor of My Tot Clock. She came up with the idea after having a hard time dealing with her son’s antics and games when going to bed; who doesn’t? My friend stayed with us, and she was oogling our My Tot Clock for her 3.5 year old son!
About My Tot Clock:
My Tot Clock is an all-in-one sleep aid, alarm clock, nightlight, and timer for children ages 2+. It teaches little ones when to sleep (blue light) and when it’s okay to get out of bed (yellow light). It also plays bedtime stories, lullabies, fun wake music, and even white noise (like ocean sounds)! As an added bonus, My Tot Clock has a light blue light for nap time, a red light for timeout, and a green light for any positive timed activity. Perfect for those young enough to start learning a daily routine, but not old enough to be able to tell time. Also great for their sleepy parents.
Pamela sent us My Tot Clock to use. #1 was getting out of bed several times a night and yelling for us when we put her down. The clock changes colors depending on what time it is. It also will play stories, songs and/or white noise. And, while it looks intimidating, it took me less than a minute to set it all up. And, you can change out the face plate as well as the story and song cartridge.
We’ve been using My Tot Clock for about a month now. #1 understands what the colors are and what they mean. She now will stay in bed (most mornings) if it isn’t yellow yet. It is definitely an improvement. See for yourself what she knows about it:
Also, in the event that you are out late, or your kid rises early, you only have to hold down a button for a couple seconds to get it to restart the routine.
As you can see from the video, if she can get her hands on it (usually, it’s on the dresser and she can’t), she knows she can reset everything. I wish there was a way to sort of lock the back of it so the times and settings can’t be changed.
Also, I wish that there was an option for just white noise. The only way I could get the white noise to play was to allow the 30 minutes of music to play beforehand.
Each Tot Clock comes with the starry night face plate, story cartridge and AC adapter for $49.95.
One lucky Really, Are You Serious? reader will win their very own My Tot Clock.
