My Tot Clock: Helping Children Everywhere Sleep Better Review {Giveaway}

TotClock

My Tot Clock is an all-in-one sleep aid, alarm clock, nightlight and timer for children ages 2+. This revolutionary clock teaches children when it is time to sleep and when it is o.k to get  out of bed by changing colors.

My Tot Clock also plays lullabies, bedtime stories, white nose and it has four different face lights (for sleeping, waking, discipline and positive encouragement).

Here are the colors and their meanings: Yellow for wake time, light blue for nap time, green for encouragement, red for time out, and dark blue for night time.  

My 19 month old son is already identifying the colors and matching them with the different activities and I love that!

I also like how highly customizable everything is and how very easy it is to operate it. If you would like to teach your children how to tell time and how to tell when it’s time for them to get up, take a nap  and even have a “time out” (if you give time outs) then you need to get a My Tot Clock. This is specially helpful when your little one transitions from the crib to a toddler bed.

The My Tot Clock has an analog clock on one side with a background that  automatically changes color (depending on the time/ activity) and on the other side you can see a digital time display with all of the controls to “set up” the times and control each function.

My Tot Clock

The My Tot Clock has an alarm clock as well that plays a song to wake up in the morning or during naps. I haven’t used that yet since he is still very young and I am usually hoping for him to sleep a bit longer anyway. I am sure we will use it more once he is a bit older.

Right now we enjoy the nap and bed time story, music or white noise options.  It helps when we are doing our bedtime routine and my little one loves listening to the story.   The stories come in a small cartridge that can be  purchased directly on their website  (each clock comes with one cartridge).

The My Tot Clock retails for $49.95. The face plates are $9.95 and each of the Tot Clock Treasures cartridges are $12.95

Tot Clock

My Tot Clock is a wonderful tool to help your children learn about time and to create a proper sleep routine.  Check out their website to see all of the adorable face plates and story cartridges they offer for little girls and boys.

Win it:  One very lucky US reader will win a My Tot Clock (face plate of choice). Enter the giveaway via Rafflecopter below. Good Luck!

    Ooooh, ONE sleep deprivation story?! How about every night for the past 4 years?! 😉 No really, probably the worst was the early days of cosleeping when I was woken every hour by either the baby wanting to nurse or my husband’s hallucinations that he rolled on her……..

    I was a zombie when my baby was sick, living on coffee and walking the floor with her. …I was so out of it that I put the full trash bag in the refrigerator instead of the outside can. 🙂 Thank you.

    I was so sleep deprived with a newborn at home…one day I couldn’t find the car keys ANYWHERE! And had to finally give up on leaving the house, so I went to get a snack- found the keys in the refrigerator. No idea when I had put them in there!

    My worst sleep deprivation comes after working a twelve hour overnight shift, only to have to be awake with my 2 year old all day the next day… I have found him both feet in the potty after waking from what I thought was only a blink of an eye… 😉

    I was late into my pregnancy with twins. Wasn’t comfortable, so wasn’t sleeping well at all. I was out to lunch with friends, and when I ordered a gargantuan amount of food, I said, “Hey, I’m eating for four now.” They looked at me and laughed, and it took me a long time before I realized that no, I was only eating for three.

    For sure kids will love this. I like the features of this clock “lullabies, bedtime stories, white nose and it has four different face lights (for sleeping, waking, discipline and positive encouragement)”. It is really good for the kids.

    Sleep deprivation was a term I never understood until our little one arrived. Who knew you could still function (limited of course) without sleep. Thank goodness he grew up! Now we have sleepless nights a different way!

    Studying for finals, I stayed up all night, took the test the next afternoon, and intended to sleep after that…forgetting totally that we were going out of town with the in-laws. I didn’t sleep for two days straight…I was so tired at one point that I forgot I was tired, but the strange tingly sensation I had was a reminder.

    What an awesome clock. It’s a multi functioning piece of technology that can really help parents and kids. It’s just too bad it doesn’t teach them how to tell time too!
