The Alarming Clock

Silly Street: a wooden alarm that imitates a woodpecker

This must be both the sweetest and the soppiest product I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a wooden alarm clock from Scotland that doesn’t tell the time (OK, it does, but not on a display that you can see), and wakes you up by imitating a woodpecker, whose artificial beak rattles against anything you choose, from actual wood to a glass of water. Oh, and The Alarming Clock also sounds to tell you to go to bed, as well as when to get up in the morning. Cute but bonkers.
