Waking up sucks. Getting out of bed is horrific. So why on earth would we sell a device that causes you to do both? Put simply it's because you're a shower of lazy so-and-so's who need to shake a leg and get to work in order to pay for all the lovely gizmos on our gloriously orangey site. So there!
Okay, that's not the only reason we've decided to stock the infuriatingly effective Flying Alarm Clock (but it’s one of the best). No, dear readers, we're selling this devious device in order to prevent you rotting away in bed when you could be skipping through butterfly-filled meadows. Or something like that. To paraphrase that well-known philosopher, erm, Jon Bon Jovi, there's plenty of time to sleep when you're dead.
Any minute now...
So what makes the Flying Alarm Clock so get-out-of-beddingly effective, then? Well, as its name suggests this digital clock actually flies. No, really. A propeller-driven module spins off the chic base unit every time the shrill alarm (think Star Trek red alert siren) goes off. So far, so annoying.
The catch is, the noisy alarm won't turn off until you retrieve the propeller and replace it on the base. Which means you have to get out of bed and search for it. How ingeniously irritating is that? And you won't be able to walk across the room in zombified-autopilot mode like you do when you try the old put-the-alarm-clock-over-there ploy, because the pesky propeller can land anywhere. Aargh!
Replace the propeller to turn the alarm off.
The Flying Alarm Clock is an ideal gift for anyone who's incapable of getting up in the morning – and, unless you’re one of those superhuman weirdos whose internal bodyclock wakes them up at 5am to go to the gym, that means you!
So wakey wakey and get ordering - we reckon the Flying Alarm Clock is all set to, er, fly off the shelves.

I bought this for my boyfriend for his Christmas just as a novelty thing an he says it is without doubt the most annoying thing ever. But it gets him up in the morning, although he has for the past few says set his mobile phone alarm just before his alarm goes off just so he knows where it has landed.

Fed up of over-sleeping? Then this is for you. It's amazing how quickly this small alarm clock will bring you out of your sleep. I guarantee that the first time you use it, it will be an experience you will never forget. The loud siren-type alarm will get you out of bed wondering what's going on, just in time to see your rotorblades flying across the room, leading to several seconds of searching to try and shut the thing up. It has even got to the point now that as soon as I hear the alarm go off, I leap out of bed and try to catch it before it takes-off/lands; although you want to be careful as sticking your finger in the blades may sting a bit, but either way it'll end up waking you up and isn't that what it's for anyway???

Amazing alarm! Was a bit skeptical about this alarm, but bought it. WOW... this thing gets you up! I have spent so much time trying to find the helicopter after it's launched that you just stay up...
you can NOT sleep through this!

Very cool item! can't wait to use properly! although the switch at top was broken so first time I used it it almost drove me mad... soon fixed that with a bit of solder tho! as for the postage, I was suprised at how fast it got here. Once again firebox has excelled themselves! Thanks!

Mine wont go higher than 2 cm :( still works so amazingly though! I fell out of bed the first time I tested it! Not used to little spinning things landing on my nose at 7:00am!

Fantastic thing. It never fails to wake me first thing in the morning with it's shrill tone, and is particularly useful for when I'm on the early shift. First alarm clock to actually work on me!
