Your new talking pyramid stands a little over 4 inches tall, so it's easy to find and tap, even in those first groggy seconds when we first wake up. The large side speakers make the spoken time easy to hear from all directions, and the rubber feet keep the clock from sliding around. The large talk button is right on top, so all you have to do is tap the top to hear the time.
All the other controls are found on the bottom of the clock, so no one will bump or change anything by mistake. Just flip this elegant clock over, and you'll find the Alarm on-off switch, the small Hour and Minute buttons for setting the time, a Mode switch, and a volume control. Yes, that's right - this clock has three volume settings - quiet for at night, regular for during the day ... and loud for a crowded room. The loud setting is also great for hard-of-hearing folks. The alarm lets you choose between three popular alarm sounds (rooster, beep or cuckoo) and has an optional snooze feature. Note that you do have to turn this clock over to see the digital time display. Uses 4 AA batteries, which are not included.
Measures about 5-3/4 in. by 4-1/2 in. by 3 in.
Package Weight: about 9.2 ounces.
