As our family is transitioning to having school-aged kids and two working parents, we’re undergoing a lot of changes. After 4.5 years of quiet, relaxing, and (if I’m being honest) lazy mornings at home, we are now at a stage where we have places to be at certain times and that means rising earlier than what has been typical.
I was beginning to start shopping for alarm clocks for Miles, who will be starting Kindergarten this fall, when I was given the opportunity to try a Disney iHome Dual Alarm Clock Speaker System for iPod. Distributed by eKids, the Phineas & Ferb Disney iHome alarm clock is a perfect solution for young kids who have places to go and need to get up early to get there!
Miles’s new Disney iHome alarm clock features Perry from Phineas & Ferb, one of his favorite big-kid shows! He can wake up to music from his iPod (yes, I still have an old click-wheel iPod!) or a gentle buzzer alarm. It has a dual alarm for separate wake times, so we can set one alarm for during the week when he has school and another for days when he needs to get up earlier or later, such as Sunday for church.
The buttons are easy to see and simple to figure out how they control the different functions. The display can be adjusted to be dimmer or brighter, and the snooze bar is easy to find on sleepy mornings! The forward and back buttons control what you’re listening to on your iPod. He likes to fall asleep listening to an iPod playlist of his dad and I reading stories. When I go in to check on him and close his door for the night, I take the iPod off the dock so that he will wake to the buzzer, which can be adjusted to the perfect sound level.
eKids has a whole line of fantastic Disney character devices, including Cars 2, Cinderella, Minnie Mouse, Disney Princess, and Phineas & Ferb! They have adorable earbuds, alarm clocks and iPod docks, walkie-talkies, and more! Prices range from $12.99 to $69.99 (Seriously, you have to see this Lightning McQueen Vroombox!)
If your kids are as fanatical about Disney characters are mine are, you’ve got to check out all of the eKids products! See more at ekids.com! Many of them are available to purchase at Amazon.com, BedBathandBeyond.com, and other online retailers!
