Discovery Kids Rocketship Projection Alarm Clock

Post to Twitter .

If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you know we’ve had our share of bunkbed issues. The not going to bed immediately; the goofing off; the laughing; the talking; the climbing up and down; and the list goes on.

Well, I’m happy to report that bed time is not an issue any longer. The boys go to bed almost immediately and rarely get into trouble any more. From time to time if they are just not tired enough, the may sneak and turn the lamp on to read books quietly in their own bed. Most often times when they do this they fall asleep while reading and don’t disturb each other.


Lately though, they haven’t wanted to turn on their lamp. Why? Well, because of this awesome Discovery Kids Rocketship Projection Alarm Clock.

It has a digital clock and four celestial images that you can select from. You can have the time, a celestial image, or both project onto the ceiling or wall. The boys love to choose a different image each night and will lay there and look at it until the fall asleep. My only complaint about this clock is that it doesn’t project for longer. Or maybe I just haven’t figured out how to change the length of time. I’ll have to look into that.

So far the boy’s favorite image is either the rocketship or the astronaut. Every night that they request the astronaut one of them (or sometimes both) will say “I want to be an astronaut when I grow up.” I love it.

PS – While the bunk beds are not an issue at night time, the mornings now are. But I’ll save that for another post.

    I cannot figure out how to set the time other than military time, can you help me with that? Is there a specific step?

  2. Hi,
    I’ve heard the bulb on the rocketship alarm clock blows out quickly. Has your held up? Are the boys still enjoying it? I’m contemplating the clock as a Christmas gift for my boys.

    Did your clock come with a power cord? Mine did not.

      It did not come with a cord but we are yet to change the batteries. We use it every single night and they love it. No issues with it blowing through batteries. It only stays on about 15 minutes each night so it isn’t on for too long at a time before automatically turning off. We love it and I highly recommend it.

      It did not come with a cord. I was bummed about that. The bulb and batteries have held up though so far. We have been using it for 2+ months already and no issues.

      I bought the clock for my son for Christmas. For the life of me I can’t unset the alarm clock. It goes off every day, it has an alarm off button but that only turns it off in the moment it is alarming. The problem is you can’t unset an alarm. If you go into alarm set you have to set a time, you can’t stop the alarm from going off daily. Feel free to email or reply if anyone has the answer to this problem.

I would LOVE to hear from you!
