Clocky - the wacky waker-upper!

We've seen some bonkers alarm clocks in our time but Clocky has just raised the bar. And that's because this wacky waker-upper leaps off the bedside table and scoots around looking for somewhere to hide when its alarm sounds. No, really!

Simply set Clocky's snooze button to zero and when the alarm sounds all hell breaks loose as this madcap digital clock scurries away, making random turns and racing from your grasp as it searches for somewhere to hide, beeping and flashing all the way. Think R2D2 on Red Bull crossed with a crazy rooster and you're halfway there.


Set up the snooze button

Catch the clocky if you're quick enough!

Too slow and...


Small and cute!

Quite obviously this means you'll have to get out of bed to switch Clocky off. Aargh! It's incredibly obnoxious but seriously effective. And let's face it, getting up in the morning isn't as easy as some people would have you believe. All that up with the lark followed by fifty push-ups malarkey is strictly for weirdos and actors in cereal ads, right? Normal people are incapable of getting out of bed without a bit of comical coercion.


Time for hide and bleep!

Despite Clocky's annoying scurrying, there's something unfathomably cute about an alarm clock that loves playing hide and seek. That said, all you lazybones who'd prefer not to spend the morning tripping over your p-jams will be pleased to learn that Clocky's wheels can be disabled. But that kinda defeats the object, unless of course you foresee one of those head-like-an-anvil, throat-like-a-camel's-armpit type mornings.

With an adjustable snooze timer (can be set between 1-9 mins), Clocky really is an ideal, albeit unsubtle, device for coaxing you out of boboland. And if any of you inveterate sleepyheads are reading this thinking that you'll soon become accustomed to Clocky's routine, think again. This smart little clock is always on the lookout for different places to hide. Under the bed? Behind the door? Beneath the table? That's for Clocky to know and for you to find out! Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep...Aargh!!

Customer Reviews

Clocky is an amazing alarm clock with many good points, such as: - Excellent battery life over 7-8 months - Very Loud! but there are some bad points - It cant drop higher than 3 feet (mine broke down the stairs) - Sometimes it doesn't really hide that well.

How well does it fare against cat attacks?

Hi, sorry no other way to ask you know how long the batteries last if the alarm goes off once a day with wheels turned on? Cheers, Mart :).
Martin Guilfoyle - 9th November 2011
Firebox says: Sorry Martin, but as you can imagine, it's very difficult to answer a question like this as it depends on so many factors, including the make of batteries that you buy, how many times you hit the snooze button in the morning and how long it takes you to catch it, etc. But the battery life is certainly very reasonable and with any decent make of battery we would expect it to last several months.
I am absolutely the worst person to get up in a morning. I used to sleep through my army of alarm clocks, they wouldn't even make me stir. That's when I found Clocky! It is now my new best friend. What an excellent idea! So I couldn't resist setting him up and seeing what he does. It is really funny watching him roll around the floor trying to find a place to hide. But I even lost it in my room at one point! It is asbolutely worth the money, it may just help you if, like me, you just can't wake up in a morning!

Firebox says: We are glad to that you have found a new friend in clocky, Pen.
Though annoying, I love this clock! I used to wake up to the radio and would abuse the snooze button. This one wakes me up with a shock, jumps off my bedside table, making me get up out of bed. I haven't been late for work since! Well worth buying.

Firebox says: Hahaa! Excellent news Jess, sometimes we all just need that little extra to wake us up in the morning.
Clocky is wonderful - I bought it for my brother who finds it impossible to drag himself out of bed. When it first comes to life in the morning it makes a chaotic squealing sound that's guaranteed to shock you awake no matter how deep asleep you are. After jumping off the bedside table it wriggles around on the floor before coming to a standstill and emitting a high-pitched beep that gets louder and louder the longer you leave it. Thankfully you're so desperate to shut it up that you've usually sprung out of bed before it can get to the beeping stage. Works like a charm.
