Puzzle alarm clock

These days my only problem with waking up in the morning is that I do it way too early and can't get back to sleep, but I remember times when I resorted to all sorts of tricks to make sure that my alarm would actually get me out of bed- putting the alarm clock on a high shelf so I'd have to make a trek to get to it, taping up the off and snooze buttons, and most successfully, putting the alarm closer to my loud roommate so even if the alarm didn't wake me, her incessant whining definitely did. I could have used a Puzzle Alarm Clock back then, as it can only be turned off when you re-assemble the four puzzle pieces it launches into the air when it goes off. Even a baby could put together a four piece puzzle, but in those first few seconds of consciousness, it would probably present a real challenge. I can see some people giving up and attempting to break the thing instead, but by then, you'd be pretty wide awake. Mission accomplished.

The Puzzle Alarm Clock is $52 from Bim Bam Banana

Clocky, the hide-and-seek playing alarm clock.

Remembering how to turn off my alarm is challenging enough as it is. A puzzle would only be distressing.

Thought UK people may like to know you can get it for just 9.99 ($17.50) from Hawkins Bazaar!

Dude... you need to HIDE the pieces.
