Steggie the Clock

Child's novelty clock
  (+9, -1)(+9, -1)

A large colourful plastic clock, in the form of a partially stylised Stegosaurus (lime green is my colour of choice!).

24 plates in two alternating rows of 12 run down Steggies' spine, one row numbered 1 to 12 and the other row displaying '1:30' to '12;30'.

Plates fall as each half hour passes. When all are down the cycle refreshes twice a day at 1 pm and 1 am, with Steggie shivering and roaring as the full set fans upright again (the kids can at least see it once!)

Plates corresponding with dinner or bath times could be accompanied with suitable recorded messages, and Steggie also performs valuable service as a night light.

       That's a bit of a blanket statement isn't it? What if you buy this for your kid on the grounds of that claim?   

       "But I don't like dinosaurs!"
