thars it really, i was discussing them with cod recently and decided to get one but done know what theyre called or where to get one?

tassis Wed 14-Jun-06 13:06:41

oooh, I was going to chat to Cod about these too.

think we want one...

im sure places like the great little trading company and bloming marvellous do them..i know you can get one which is a rabbit, which you set so that the child musnt get up until the rabbit opens his eyes.

yeah ive debated over that one too..but this one has red amber and green or something along those lines and you mark times with each colour indicating what time they can get up, or if they have to go back to sleep, play in their room etc..

either would be good, but with dd i think this one might work better.prob wrong!

I've just made one of the ones like Cod suggested. I bought a £1.25 clock from Ikea and coloured in segments for getting up etc. Wrote Issy's clock on it and put fairies on it. Looks fab, she loves it. Works a treat (I can't get up yet can I mummy as the hand isn't in the pink yet?" and a bargain at £1.25

EvesMama Wed 14-Jun-06 15:09:49

its a nightmare..nothing going right at minute,still havent got completion date

hockeymum, what a fab idea..but we're no where near ikea..anyone going?????i can pay before..will start thread later maybe, cos £20 worth of petrol for £1 clock doesnt add up does it

today i have just bougth ds1 a magic lamp and connected it to a timer
he is only allowed to get up when it is on and if he stays in bed til then, the genie of the lamp will leave him a surprise....
set it to the time the child wqkes for 2 days then every two dsys after that, put it back 15 mins

i am sick of waking up before 5am having been up and down all night with ds2

tassis Wed 14-Jun-06 20:03:09

sounds like a good plan popsy. let us know how you get on...

EvesMama Wed 14-Jun-06 20:07:16

im all for hockeymums idea

FlameBoo Sun 18-Jun-06 21:39:35

Ooh, I was coming on to find the link for this - but I really like the idea of making our own one.

She'd love one with pinks and purples and fairies

Off to Wilkinsons or somewhere to find a nice big plain clock.

Anyone able suggest one other than ikea (no ikea near here)

I got one of these for my ds - Kidsleep - the bottom half of the display acts as a nightlight, showing bunny asleep in bed, the top half lights up when you've set it too (later on the weekend!) showing bunny awake. It also acts as an alarm clock for bigger kids. DS got the hang of it really quickly, and now hurtles through at 7:25 on the dot shouting "Bunny's woken up!"

<<SDs ears perk up at the thought of a trip to Ikea to buy stuff>>
