Don't buy this
First one didn't keep time and the wake light was turning on in the middle of the night. I assumed I just received a defective one and ordered a replacement, which arrived within 24 hours. Tried the new one last night and it STILL doesn't work. Setting it up was easy, but it doesn't keep time. Very frustrating. I just requested a refund, and it says I'm eligible for a $0.00 refund. WTF?!? Infuriating.

Best idea for toddlers learning to wait for wake up ...
Best idea for toddlers learning to wait for wake up time and it worked like a charm for us- for the first month or two. As another buyer mentioned, with zero wear and tear the clock started to fall behind and the bunny would still be on the sleep setting when it was supposed to be awake. Now I can't even reprogram the times. You click the buttons to program the time and the clock flickers out of control. I have tried multiple times and it's definitely fried. So incredibly disappointed and so is my toddler! The fact that other reviewers are explaining the same problem confirms this product is cheap and easily defected.

Great concept, POOR quality product.
We bought this clock because we have the blue bunny version for our son. It totally works in keeping him in his room until the set time. My daughter seems to get the hang of it too...only problem is the clock has a mind of its own. One of the alarms came preset at 0300. My fault for not checking that one...However every time I try to change the times, the clock goes haywire. I brush past an alarm button on the back and the time changes rapidly. I try to change alarm 1, and alarm 2 advances even though I'm not pushing an up/down button. The quality of this clock SUCKS. The wiring must be really bad. Shame since this product isn't cheap.
We had trouble with my son's bunny clock too (with really customer service from the manufacturer, I might add), but we finally got it set to the right times and have never touched the back of the clock again. I'd send it back, but I know the replacement will be just as crappy. In the mean time, I'll fiddle with it till the settings stay where I want. My daughter is 2 and already knows she can't ask to get out of her crib till the cow wakes up, so the concept is great. I just hope I can get the clock to cooperate.

We love this clock. We have had it for over a year and it was so simple to use. My 2 year old quickly caught on and stays in bed until her cow is dancing. I really like that it doesn't depend on color recognition which is difficult for some little ones especially early in the morning.
We did not have any issues with it not keeping time, being difficult to program or having trouble resetting as some previous reviews mentioned. We have traveled with it several times and love it!!!

Much Praise!! We have a sleeping toddler - in her bed, not ours!
Seriously. AWESOME. We were skeptical with the number of negative reviews, but got this for our 3.5 year old for Christmas because we were desperate and the color oriented sleep trainer clocks did not work for us. Our little girl has slept in her bed every single night since Christmas - all night. She is living by whether that cow is sleeping or awake. It's amazing. We've had no issues at all. They switch can get moved, but you move it back - just like the buttons could get pressed on the other versions. We've actually bought an extra for back up in case anything happens to this one.

This is working well for us. I've read some reviews that state that you have to reset the clock (turn it off, and then back on again) each day, but this is not the case for us. We set it once and leave it and it switches automatically. The only thing I would change is having the ability to set the time that the cow switches to sleep at night. That seems to happen automatically based on wake up time perhaps?

Great concept but too expensive for something that doesn't work well
Great concept and my daughter loves it! Luckily, she no longer totally depends on it to know the appropriate wake up time. The clock part never worked great - always ran slow and had to constantly reset it. Now, after 7 months of use, it doesn't keep time at all. And the AM/PM display are impossible to read. The alarm option is nice but too loud - scares her to death. But she still wants to see the cow sleeping when she goes to bed. So I'm debating whether to buy her a different type of clock with the same concept or just using the nightlight option on this one. Would definitely not purchase another - way too expensive for a clock that only works for 7 months and never works well.

Great, when it worked properly
Was great for the first 1.5 years, but then stopped keeping time accurately. This solved the issue we had with my son constantly leaving his room and coming to ours. Once he had a clear indicator of when it was ok to come out, he did great, and for that I am so thankful! I would buy this again for our other child when he is old enough. However, as I said it did stop working (but again, I’d STILL buy it again since it was so helpful for a time!).

This clock has been incredibly useful for teaching our 3 year old son the appropriate time to get out of bed. The toggle to select the sound/no sound alarm is a bit tricky, and you have to make sure you count the notches so that your kid doesn't accidentally wake up to the loud bird sounds (this happened to us on the first day, now we know to double check, and we're good to go!)
There is another similar product on the market, but it doesn't have pictures. For my 3 year old, it really helps to say "if the bunny is sleeping, you need to be sleeping, but when the bunny wakes up to go outside, YOU can wake up too!" I find the picture more helpful for teaching a toddler than just a colored light turning on, like the other popular light out there.
Overall, great product, and I definitely recommend it if you are trying to teach a toddler to stay in bed!

this is a great concept - IF IT WORKED
This clock stopped working after about 6 months of use. The clock is always slow, and continues to get slower, no matter how many times we reset the time. The wiring on the buttons must be faulty, because the buttons don't do what they are intended to do. Overall, this is a great concept - IF IT WORKED. This was a waste of money and now it is outside the return window.
