Hey Baby It's Time to wake up!

Time to Wake Up!

Time to Wake Up!

My favorite clock is by far the clock I have come to call "The Hey Baby Clock" and for ten years I have yet to find a clock that is as ingenious, adorable and as durable as the "Hey Baby".

It was really by sheer chance how I landed my clock. When I was younger-my mother, brothers and I were walking through the mall and we came upon an adult novelty store which my mother didn't approve us going into. But in the front of the store sat a sale table and on the table was the clock.

We would have never known what the alarm sounding was like if my younger brother wasn't as ADD as he was. Needless to say, we all loved it!

When we went to check out, my mother realized she had left the checkbook in the car and when we came back the clock was gone! We tirelessly searched for months to find the clock, but to no avail.

Then one day, we just happened upon it at a linens store and since then I have not let go of it.

The clock itself looks somewhat like a child's clock. It is of a chicken, wearing black sunglasses and holding a blue guitar and within the body of the guitar is an actual clock.

But, its appearance wasn't what made me fall in love, it was the alarm. Every morning for the past ten years I have been awakened by the sound of my "Hey Baby" clock. It has yet to get old to me.

I still smile when my alarm goes off...and that in itself is a miracle. The clocks' alarm is a song and having owned the clock for ten years I could most likely sing it backwards. The alarm the clock sings is as follows:

"Hey baby, its time to wake up, come and dance with me, come and dance with me."

The beak of the chicken even moves as if it were singing along with the song. It's a happy, light and cherry alarm to wake up to and it sure beats the monotonous noise of regular alarm clocks.

Not only is it just an awesome clock but it has lasted for years. I LOVE my clock, it's great. I've bought at least five by now for nieces and nephews and as birthday gifts for my friend's children.

It's really appropriate for any age and to be honest I don't think I could wake up without it.

I have been looking for this alarm for our 4-h camp about nine years ago one of the other conselors brought this clock and we tortured especially the boys with it. Back than my son was a camper now he is top staff this year and running the camp we sure would like to have one of these to bring back all those fond memories of him when he was a camper and make the same memories for a small camper now. Please e-mail me back and let me know where I can get it. dbmadole@aol.com

I had one of these in the 90s! First loved it, then hated it... Incredibly sturdy beastie - as an irresponsible student that frequently stayed out too late I took to switching the alarm off by throwing it across my bedroom in the mornings... never stopped working though!! I think I gave it to my son when he was quite little, don't know what happened to it after that, but I think I'm sending my husband up into the loft to look!!

I'm lookin for one also!

i had mine in high school in the late 90's. My family all hated it becuz it didnt just wake me up, it woke up everyone in the house. Mine was a little different, it didnt say "it's time to wake up" it said "Hey baby wake up, come and dance with me, woooooooow, yoooooow" then it would repeat it again and again until you pushed the button on top of his head. the only bad thing about this clock was that it didnt have a snooze button, once you turned him off he was done and you had to remember to push his button back on for the next morning. Regardless, he was awesome, i had him for years then he stopped working. my niece was only a toddler when i had it, now she's 16 years old and she still remembers it. i wanted to buy her one and myself one also. if anyone has found them for a reasonable price please let me know. i think my dad paid $10 for mine back then.

For those seeking to replace the clock, I found (from another blog) that there seem to be a few posted on ebay. At the time I looked, it seemed they were starting bids around $50 and reportedly go up to $150. Wow... yeah...

Need one!

I also have been looking for this clock, my kids loved it years ago when they were little. What a neat gift for them now, to remember their childhood! Let me know if you know where to find them. The one I purchased then was from BestBuy.
