Morning Talk Show

Wait, wait... don't tell me it's time to wake up already!

If you enjoy catching NPR's comedy news quiz, Wait, Wait... Don't Tell MeTM!, then catching this uproarious alarm clock might just make the morning more entertaining. The clock comes preset with nine different witty wake-up calls from the show's host, Peter Sagal, and announcer Carl Kasell. Not only that, but when the alarm goes off, this clock wiggles itself right off your nightstand and rolls away, motivating you to get out of bed in order to silence it.

The real prize here, though, is how many amazing features the Tocky conceals within its playful exterior. In addition to the prerecorded messages and a crazy alarm sound, Tocky(R) can be filled with 2 hours of MP3s using the included USB cable, and can wake you to the song of your choice. Or you can record your own message with its built-in microphone. An intuitive interface allows you to control its settings - including volume, and whether you want it to run away or not - by sliding your finger around the circular clock face. The durable clock, with its removable, silicone skin, can drop safely from 3 feet. Made in China.

    Totally the sexiest alarm clock ever conceived!

    Just for clarification, the "prize" for voting thumbs up and leaving some feedback is that our buyers will take your votes and comments into consideration when deciding whether to carry the clock. If you love the latest version of Tocky be sure to cast your vote, tell us why, and use the buttons above to share it with your friends. And don't forget, we'll gladly email you if the Wait Wait Tocky becomes available, so don't wait to sign up for a notification above!

    This is a great concept; I love "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me." You might lose a few people because of the price ($50 might be better?), but I think it's great.

    I would love to order these for gifts and myself; however, not for $70.

    The price is a bit much, but I really love the color and qualities of the clock! What a fun, unique item! Thumbs up all the way~~*(*^_^*)*~

    Awesome! What a cool clock. I love waking up to my favorite music stored on Tocky.

    It's cute but a bit to expensive for me.

    I thought this was cool but a bit pricey -- and made in China?

    I might actually get up if I had this clock :)

    I want to buy this NOW!

    Vote: Thumbs down!

    I was so close to buying this for my nephew, but the comments on Amazon indicate the buttons are too small and that you have to reset it all the time. The only good comments were from two grandmothers. Grandkids always tell their grammas 'thank you, it's great'. The mom's didn't like it at all!

    OMG! Wish I could buy this today for a friend's whose birthday is next week!!!

    1 more piece of expensive junk that is impossible to recycle when it dies.

    Like it but I agree with others that it's a little pricey and strange that it's not actually a radio.

    Christine

    I am not buying items made in China.

    My husband and I love Wait Wait and would totally buy this!

    Like the idea, but (like many others) wouldn't get it at this price. Mornings are a challenge already, and this might be the ticket to fixing that!

    Hysterical! Love!

    Not familiar with the NPR show and I really like simplicity rather than ANOTHER gadget! $70 is outrageous.

    looks too expensive for what it is.

    Lots of cheaper alarms out there that do basically the same thing

    Way too expensive and made in China.

    Made in China.

    Great concept but way too expensive.

    annie

    Fun!

    MJ

    I LOVE the insanity and practicality of it!If it rolls away, does it continue to tell you to get up? Seems so. Ahh parent's revenge!

    Nancy

    CHINA? Nope!
