Nice alarm clock, fun, but needs more work – Novelty Run-Around Wake-Up-n-Catch-Me Digital Alarm Clock on Wheels (4*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-It is a good alternative to buying the original Clocky
-Says ok up to 3 feet drop. I have it higher (closer to 4 ft) and it's still running fine
-Beeps loudly
Cons:
-Another color would be preferable
-Uses a lot of battery power when it runs
-the display flashes once or twice every minute...is it a glitch?
Other:
-it tends to run under my bed...hard to fish it out of there, but I suppose that's the point
Bottomline:
It is a nice alarm clock to have. Looking for it every morning is a pain, so only use it for occasions when you know it will be hard to get up. Also, it sometimes stubbornly goes just one direction: back towards the the wall it fell from. It's just like a regular alarm clock then, but at least it's off the night stand. If DX had it in another color, I would have bought several already as gifts. (*Hint*)
