If you read a previous post on a Ben 10 action figure you will know my son is a big fan of this cartoon. I am not going to explain what Ben 10 is, simply because there is a long explanation on my other review so if you are a Ben 10 novice check it out.
My son recieved this clock and watch set for his 5th birthday. He is always asking what the time is and I thought using a digital display he could find out for himself.
******* The clock *****
The clock my son recieved is different to the one shown in the picture. I suggested this product with the projector alarm clock but have seen the one above so will try to describe both.
The picture shown is the Ben 10 wall clock. I looked at this item on amazon before heading to Agros for mine. I'm not sure how big this clock is as it is not stated on Amazon. But it is as you can see a green splat shape (everything Ben 10 has to be green) with pictures of the most common ailiens around the border. There is a circular clock in the middle with a picture of Ben 10 and the omnitrix. The clock obviously shows hours and minutes but also has a second hand. Like I say I didn't get this clock in the end so I apologise for lack of comment on it.
The projector clock is the clock I bought my son which also came with the watch shown above. The projector clock has a green base and a figure of Fourarms standing on top of it. There are only four buttons on this clock which make it simple for children to use : Project, Set, Adjust and Mode. It has a smallish digital display where you can see the time (hour, minutes and seconds) and day. It has an alarm although this is not the loudest, although it does the job as it wakes my son for school. It also has a stop watch feature.
The thing that makes this clock stand out is the projector function. There is a circular light on the top of the clock beside the Fourarms figure. When you press the projector button the time is projected onto the ceiling in green. This makes up for the small display. My son shows this function off to all who pass through the front door as a gimmik, yet it is also useful for him to see what time it is in the dark. It takes 2 AA batteries.
I took this out of my sons room to wirte about it. I have just accidently knocked it with my arm and one of the arms has just fallen off at the elbow joint. Better go and find some glue before he notices. Maybe not as strong as I thought.
The watch face itself is mainly blackand has pictures of ailiens on it. Surrounded by green border where there is a button (metal pin) to allow to switch between time, date and stopwatch displays. There is also what i would call an inverted button which u push with the aid of a pen or pin to adjust the date and time. The watch strap is black with pictures of the most common ailiens as you would expect. I had to make an extra hole in the strap for my son but he is tiny. My son wears this watch with pride and has developed a much greater understanding of time. It is a 12 hour display which is perfect for younger children.
The wall clock and watch set are currently selling for £10 on Amazon while the projector clock and watch set are £19.58 in argos. I bought mine in argos for £15.99. I know the Projector clock without the watch is also being sold in some Asda stores for £16.99.
My son loves this and is now happy to go and look at the time instead of asking.
