Longing for your child to stay in bed longer so you can get an extra hour or so of sleep? I know I was when my kids were younger. The answer to those sleepless mornings are now here thanks to MELLA by Little Hippo.

MELLA is a modern alarm clock, sleep trainer, sleep sounds machine, night light and nap timer rolled into one sleek package. By using a combination of facial expressions and changing colors, MELLA teaches your kid when it’s bed time and when it’s okay to wake up. MELLA’s unique sleep trainer teaches the concept of delayed gratification –half an hour before it’s time to wake up, MELLA will teach your child to stay in the bedroom quietly until it’s okay to wake up.


“We looked at all the sleep trainers on the market and knew that there had to be something better. Something that looked and was high quality, included all the essential features of a kid’s clock, and reasonably priced,” said Stephanie Lai, founder and CEO. “MELLA hits all those points.”

MELLA is currently above their Kickstarter goal and we can’t wait to be able to get our hands on this clock! Available in blush pink, arctic blue, purple, and Kickstarter green, you can check it out and pre-order yours by visiting:
