Chances are you've got a love hate relationship with your alarm clock. Because let's be honest, being abruptly stirred from your slumber by a shrill, insentient lump of circuitry is simply not natural. Besides, in most cases, alarm clocks are there to remind us that it's time to wakey wakey, rise and do a day's work. Bleurgh!

And the only reason we use them when we're not working is to remind us that we've got to get up and do something really important - like collect the car before it gets a ticket or watch SpongeBob Squarepants before the Saturday morning hangover really kicks in.

Aurora Colour Changing Clock All of which is why we're slightly cautious when it comes to selling alarm clocks. For us, they have to possess something very special to elevate them above their status of annoying but necessary everyday accessories. Thankfully the mesmerising Aurora Colour Changing Clock is more than a mere alarm clock; it's an inspired, chameleon-like block of spellbinding design genius.

Aurora Colour Changing Clock Why? Well, this über-funky clock is encased in gorgeously tactile translucent rubber that quietly changes colour (The Touch lights up initially for 30 seconds) on the hour, every hour. The ethereal glow that emanates from the Aurora is truly hypnotising and we guarantee you'll be lying there with baited breath waiting for the next colour change to gently bathe your bedside table in a glorious new shade of whatever (a highly relaxing experience in itself). This smart cube of mood lighting can be set to cycle through its 12 colour variations by glowing one colour per hour, or through a preset lighting sequence. The choice is yours. A gentle tap is all it takes to turn the light show off.

Aurora Colour Changing Clock

The Aurora's bold, backlit LCD screen means you won't be squinting to tell the time at 3a.m., and you shouldn't even be unduly irritated by its alarm, as the soporific effect of its mesmerising glow will ensure you always get a good night's sleep. Nighty night!

Customer Reviews

How do I buy the mains version. There is no option to choose??
Steve - 16th December 2012
Firebox says: We are currently out of stock on the mains version and probably wont be getting these back until the new year, sorry about that!
I am wondering what sound does the alarm make? because I am hoping to order today but I hate the beep that most alarm clocks make.
Caitlin - 2nd December 2012
Firebox says: Hi Caitlin, the alarm clock does make a beeping noise, but I noticed on the reviews people have mentioned it not being a particularly annoying alarm noise.
Hiya. Was just wondering if it had a snooze function?
Sara - 23rd November 2012
Firebox says: Hi Sara, to snooze, tap the clock when alarm sounds, the snooze lasts for 5 mins. The only way to stop snooze is by pressing "Alarm" button underneath.
Love this clock because of the pretty colours. It's also great cuz if I wake up in the middle of the night and want to know how long I have left before I need to wake up I don't need to try hard to get my eyes to work to read the time because I've just woken up, I can tell by the colour what time it roughly is. The only downside is that the clock runs slow for some odd reason (powered from mains so it's not even a low battery) every month the clock runs an extra minute behind which is kind of annoying to keep resetting.
Oooh Pretty Rainbows - 6th March 2012
This is actually a question, hope its answered before its too late for Christmas!. . I was going to get this for a child as a night light... I wondered. . With the mains version, when it is on permanent nightlight, does touching it turn the light off? So the kid can turn it on and off themself?
Craig - 17th December 2011
Firebox says: Hi Craig, in the permanent mode the light just stays on, but the kid would be able to turn it to touch mode easily enough by just flicking the switch on the bottom. Then they could just tap the top to get the light on, and if they wanted to put it back on permanent mode, they could flick the switch on the bottom back again. I hope this helps!
I bought the Aurora Colour Changing Clock back in 2005 and it has been faithfully waking me each morning ever since. However, in recent months the coating on the sides and top of the clock has started to degrade and feels sticky. I'm really sad that my little clock appears to be dying. Is there anything I can treat it with to stop this happening? It's a little bit worrying that the coating appears to be unstable in this manner - is it chemically safe?

Firebox says: Hi Harriet, this is most likely wear and tear after 6/7 years use. Plastics will generally fade and be worn down, we can assure you that the plastic is safe. Please do drop us an email should you wish to discuss further (
