Are Your Kids Waking Up Too Early? Teaching kids how know when it is time to get up in the morning and when they should go back to sleep can be quite the challenge. Toddlers and young kids cannot tell time, and with changing seasons, they can’t even go by whether it is dark or light outside.
I was so fortunate to have kids that stayed in bed till 8 or even 9am on most days. However, I have had friends that have kids that wake up at 5:30 or 6am and are ready to go! If you have kids that wake up too early or just want to teach them how to tell time, the Zazoo Kids Visual Photo Alarm Clock is a fantastic and fun solution.

Zazoo Kids Visual Photo Alarm Clock Review
By using images, your kids can learn to tell what time it is even before they can learn to tell time with this visual photo alarm clock. You can program the Zazoo Kids Clock with daytime and night time images – images are provided. You can even set a nap time or quiet time settings with visual sleeping and waking times displayed.
My daughter is in kindergarten and still understanding time, schedules, and the new school routine. She has always been my early riser. Fortunately, most times, it was enough for me to tell her that it is “not morning” yet and she would return to bed. This can be so confusing and frustrating for young kids who see the sun is shining and birds are singing. They can’t tell the difference between a bright sunny 6am and 7:30am! She loves her Zazoo kids clock!
The 7″ screen is vibrant and the perfect size for a nightstand or desk. We put Elizabeth’s Zazoo Kids Clock on her dresser so she can see if from her bed and immediately know if it is bed time or wake up time. She lets me know if we are passed day time while reading stories at bedtime too!
Customizing the Zazoo Kids Clock is easy by uploading photos with your choice of media including USB, SD card, or Flash drives. The clock comes with several images for day and night time. We used the dark sky with a moon for night time and a cheery sun for daytime at first. Later, we customized the images with our own images for day and night time. Elizabeth loves seeing her photos on the clock!
We don’t have naptime anymore, but the Zazoo Kids Clock has a naptime setting. You can use the same sleepy and daytime images or switch it up. This could be used for quiet time, reading time, and homework time as well. My second grader has to read for 20 minutes every night. Using the Zazoo Kids Clock would be perfect for him to be able to visually see when his time is up instead of relying on us to keep track and tell him. It gives independence to kids, even as they get older like my son.
My Zazoo Kids Visual Photo Alarm Clock Video Review[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZwsV-rGLsw&feature=youtu.be[/youtube] The Zazoo Kids clock grows with your child. Once they outgrow the morning and night images, they can be replaced with a grown-up looking digital clock.
There are many other fun features that grow with your child like the rotating photos, video playback, and mp3 player.
Listen with the built-in speakers or plug in your earphones. Great for music and audiobooks.
My daughter especially likes the rotating photos option where she can see her favorite pictures of her family and friends while she is playing in her room. Plus, you can upload your own videos or download them from your computer to play the videos on the Zazoo clock!
The Zazoo clock would make a great gift for kids of all ages, from toddlers to teens. It is a great clock that grows with your child. Order one now for Christmas!
