This clock is different from any clock I've had before. It was larger then I expected and it took me a little while to figure out how to set it. But once I got it I was very pleased to see what it did. All the light and different colors makes it a perfect night light in a nursery or small childs room. It could also be a great lamp in a teens bedroom. It has an FM radio and a setting for soothing nature sounds. It's attractive and very cool. Your kids will love it!!!
