Wake up 'Farm Style'!
Hi-tech alarm clocks filled with digital whizz-bangery are all fine and dandy, but sometimes you just want a clock that wakes you up. No wishy-washy bells, timid beeps or poncey peeps, just a ludicrously loud cacophony that'll have you out of bed and shaking a leg in seconds.
Having tried and failed to attach a clock to a foghorn, we thought we'd better start searching for something specifically designed to give heavy sleepers a proper ear-bashing. And what better place to start than the farmyard?
Neighbour's dog not required
Sadly, spoilsport watchdogs won't let us sell real roosters or yappy dogs, so we've found the next best thing. The ingenious Animal Alarm Clock looks just like a regular cartoon-style alarm clock with big shiny bells. The difference is, this stylish timepiece wakes you up to the cock-a-doodle-doo of a cockerel. And if that doesn't appeal, there's a doggy version that barks. What a wooftastic way to start your day!
Trying to sleep through the raucous dawn chorus emitted by these eye-catching clocks is nigh on impossible, even if you've got three pillows over your head and have gone to bed in an advanced state of refreshment. What's more, each easy-to-read clock has a colourful picture of the animal in question plastered across its face - a welcome sight for confused dozers who can't work out where all the noise is coming from.
Unfortunately the din produced by the Animal Alarm Clock renders every "I didn't hear my alarm clock" style excuse totally useless. In fact the only people impervious to this amusing cock-a-doodle-doo/woof-woof racket are farmers. But you're not, are you? So wakey-wakey, rise and shine, and get ordering. COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!
