Very neat alarm clock! – Novelty Run-Around Wake-Up-n-Catch-Me Digital Alarm Clock on Wheels (4*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Will always get you out of bed, very persistent! - Good build quality, cute design - Runs really fast, nice movement pattern - Good battery life on alkalines - Very original gift idea
Cons:
- Screen flashes every minute - Misses the battery lace - No volume controls
Other:
This is a one of a kind alarm clock! You set the time, alarm and snooze response (say, 5 minutes) and wait until the morning. The alarm wakes you up with this R2-D2ish sound. As usual, you click the snooze button and go back to sleep. Five minutes later it sounds again only that this time the alarm 'jumps' off the night-stand and starts running around your room like crazy! You have to get out of bed and turn off the alarm! Once you're standing you have to make the tough decision of either go back to sleep or have breakfast. I usually choose the latter and it feels great...
Bottomline:
A very original gift idea that will entertain people of any ages, from children to adults. When more colours appear I will buy 5 of these and give them to family and friends. Make sure that your first purchase is for you! There's nothing that can wake you up faster than this! Well, except a bucket of cold water...
