But this clock is by no means just for kids. The unit boasts a super-strength suction cup on the base of the stand. When you set it down on the nightstand, it's not moving. Period. Plus, there are no buttons to press, and no switches to accidentally bump. The three small set buttons are located on the rear of the clock, in an indented area less than an inch in diameter. When you set the clock and press it into the stand, they're all but invisible!
Folks often ask us for a clock with a single large button to hear the time, because their elderly mother keeps pressing the wrong button. This is the ultimate solution - she need press no buttons at all. It's modern, stylish, and sturdy. Perhaps best of all, it's the simplest talking clock in the world! (Runs on two AA batteries, not included.
