Mr. Wakey’s the kind of alarm that will do its job regardless of the user’s experience with the product. Whether you love it or hate it, the Mr. Wakey sticks to its design brief of getting you wide awake and even out of bed! The alarm clock comes in a bulbous roly-poly toy shape that stays upright no matter what and is designed to take all your frustration because the only way you can switch the alarm off is by flinging it at a wall. Made out of soft silicone, Mr. Wakey can take all sorts of impact, while mini crash sensors on the inside will detect the force, converting it into points. The harder you throw Mr. Wakey, the higher your chances of silencing it. Keep throwing the toy to rack up enough points to shut Mr. Wakey up and by the time you’re done, you’re wide awake!
The alarm clock is designed with a character that is supposed to taunt you into waking up. The face on Mr. Wakey even comes with this malevolent expression that is made to trigger your wrath so that you feel energized and ultimately less sleepy. The alarm clock even glows with a bright light on the inside to give you audio as well as visual cues with the alarm goes off. Yes, you’ll probably wake up every morning feeling crabby and slightly peeved off, but you’ll wake up for sure!
