A simple little clock kit, ideal for repairing a favourite clock or for making your own unique one, either for a gift or for yourself. I’m going to attach it to a box edge canvas when I’ve painted a front, not sure yet of the design, but the great thing is you can make one to fit your décor which would blend in. Or you could match it to a friend or relatives home for a unique gift which would ensure you’re giving a very personalised present. Everything you need for the clock part, apart from the battery, is here. It would make a great gift for crafters just as it is too.

ZHPUAT 5.3″ Digital Alarm Clock, Large HD Display, Snooze, Smart Soft Light, Progressive Alarm, Battery Operated, Simple Setting, Temperature Display, Easy for Travel (White)

Review from Jeannie’s Reviews on

I love this clock. Its replaced my very ancient 20+ years old one in my bedroom. It needs three AAA batteries so check you have them when you order! I hate getting goods and finding I haven’t the right batteries…

Its got a large clear display, with a light for night-time that goes off after 4-5 seconds. That makes it perfect for me, I’m hopeless at telling the time without a clock and need to take medication at night. Him Indoors can tell the time with ten minutes even if I shake him awake and ask him ( and I have, just to test!). I don’t know how he does it but he never wears a watch, so I guess his internal clock is just much more accurate than mine. If I guess I could be hours out, not minutes.

Its easy to set up, has time, date, 12/24 hour format, snooze button for those that like to savour an extra few mins. I haven’t tried the progressive alarm function, didn’t notice til I was just writing this that there was one. Its very quiet, more so that my old one, which is good as I’m a light sleeper and regular noises, like a clock ticking really irritate me and keep me awake. Its even got a temperature display, such a lot in one simple device.

One word of warning – do check if you use 12 hour clock, Him Indoors set the alarm for me for 7 am we thought, only to discover he’d got that right but set the clock so that it was showing pm in the morning and am in the afternoon/night!!

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
