***Used for over 200 peaceful wake-ups last month!***

The Toddler Wake Up Clock was designed by me, a dad who needed a simple solution to show his two-year-old when was an appropriate time to wake up. Simplicity was key, as adding yet another task to bedtime was not an option. With that in mind the Toddler Wake Up Clock allows the parent to pick a time and the "sun rises" at the time selected. No sound is associated with the wake-up time, it simply allows the child, if awake, to see that it is appropriate to get out of bed.

-Simple to pick a time

-The "night time mode" dims the iDevice screen as much as possible, so as to minimally shine in the child's face at night

-The time selected is remembered the next time the app is opened, so the time does not need to be selected every time

Excellent! Love love love

Love this app! The perfect thing to help toddlers know when it's time to get out of bed. Gives my toddler a sense of independence. She loves it, too! The wake up clock stays dark with a very dim clock that shows digital time when it's time to sleep or rest. There is a setting for an adult to set the wake up time. When it is time to be awake and get out of bed, the sun comes up with a cheery warm yellow background. My toddler loves seeing the sun. I will use this to also teach her time when she is ready. Excellent tool and so much cheaper than the expensive wake up clocks on the market.

No more early mornings!


Super basic and perfect for teaching my 2 yr old toddler to stay in bed until he sees the sun is awake. The clock is dim throughout the night (unlike those bright nightlights) and then the picture of the sun comes on at the time you set. If my son wakes up and doesn't see the sun then he knows the sun is still asleep and to go back to bed until it wakes up. So cool! Would be awesome if there could be a dim picture of the moon and stars until the sun " wakes up" but that would be my only suggestion. Works perfectly!


Good, but maybe end of line

I will change this review it if the program get a updated it to work with the latest version of iOS. As it stands, if it is not updated, it will not work with iOS 12, which is coming out in the fall.

Functionality wise, this is a great app. We have a physical OK to wake clock and this is great substitute for travel.
