Daylight savings time may be coming to an end and, though we get that extra hour of sleep this time around, the thought of shorter days to come has us wanting to hit that snooze button one more time, or five.

But this small and mighty —with just the right amount of annoying— alarm clock is here to keep you on track for your day and help you throw off the duvet cover. The Clocky Alarm Clock on Wheels will run away, hide, roll, wheel, beep, and even jump so you have no choice but to get out of bed and search for the evasive fellow. It's also extra-loud, so even if you're a deep sleeper, the R2D2-style sound Clocky emits will wake you from a slumber.

And while the premise of the Clocky is that he is loud and loves to run away, he can still be set to just make the R2D2 noise.

"I can sleep through thunderstorms, house alarms, fire alarms, dogs barking, and people trying to wake me up," wrote one user. "I needed an alarm that would physically get me out of bed. This one definitely does it - it is *incredibly* loud - my husband HATES it. I'm just glad to have something that actually wakes me up!" 

Now, If you are brave enough to catch him more than once in the morning, the Clocky does have a snooze button that can be set once for up to eight minutes before you have to repeat the whole catch Clocky process. 

"Clocky is relentless," another dared to describe the clock. "It's trained me to jump up and get up quickly because the alarm is impossible for me to ignore." 

Users say the alarm clock is best kept on the floor as the constant jumping from night table to floor can really put a beating on its plastic body. It also requires  AAA batteries, which ensures that you'll wake up on time if there's a power outage or you forgot to set your alarm, but they also seem to have to be replaced fairly frequently. 

Everyone from kids to adults can benefit from Clocky, and it makes a great practical novelty gift to that person in your life who is always running late in the morning or complains about how hard it is to get out of bed. 

With Clocky, sleeping past your alarm will be a thing of the past, but actually going through your morning routine and starting your day on-time, that's up to you.
