New product: Big Red Rooster's projection alarm clocks

Big Red Rooster has added three new animals to its Projection Alarm Clocks: Dog, Cat and Dinosaur. With green eyes and white paws, the cat alarm clock projects the time and four different feline images; the brown and white dog projects the time and four images, and can rotate its head 340-degrees; and the dinosaur alarm clock projects four prehistoric images as well as the time. Whether it is used as a nightlight or alarm, customers can decide to project just the time, the image or a combination of image blended with the digital time. "Our mission is to create innovative products that help people fall asleep or get out of bed in the morning," said Brian Johnson, founder of Big Red Rooster. "The three animal clocks are ready to become bedside buddies as kids choose the best companion to be their first alarm clock."
