“She invented Clocky (the popular jump-up-and-shake-you-out-of-bed alarm clock) during an industrial design course at MIT. The product was a hit, and she’s since founded Nanda Home, where she continues to sell unconventional clocks.”

Clocky was lucky enough to get a play date with Martha’s dogs! He was sent on a mission by her energetic puppy to get her French Bulldogs out of bed to play. Click here to see the delightful photo stream of his attempt to set Clocky loose on Sharkey and Franny during nap time.

We took Clocky and Tocky on the road for the month of January, and we’re just now getting back into our routine. Here’s a brief roundup of our time on the road.
First was CES in Las Vegas. We didn’t win any money, but we did win the hearts of snoozers from all over. Clocky and Tocky were reviewed by dozens of gadget lovers and we’re still seeing videos pop up all over the web. See what people are saying here, here and here. Our favorite part was when our neighbors from JudoBaby, confiscated our Clocky sign shortly after the show ended claiming they needed it for their office décor.
After CES, we traveled to the Atlanta Gift and Home Furnishings Market, to exhibit in The Nest Showroom, which featured a wonderful co-op of other contemporary lines including Molla Space, This is J and Laurel Denise Jewelry. The showroom actually won best showroom design on the entire 8th floor and we were all proud to be a part of such a stunning new space. We made new friends and Clocky and Tocky found new homes in great stores across the country including Queen’s Gifts in North Carolina, Shotwell’s in North Dakota, and Pomegranate Home in Oregon. It’s so exciting to think of our little army of snooze protectors heading all over the country to help those that need it the most!
Last, we spent a week in Dallas Total Gift and Home Market and reconnected with Breed & Co. in Austin, Leon & Lulu in Clawson, MI, and the sweet ladies from Aunt Aggie De’s Pralines who gave us fresh pralines to munch on while they placed their order! It was great to see many familiar faces and share the story of Nanda Home with people who couldn’t help but ask “WHO CAME UP WITH THAT?”
While we were busy traveling, Remembrance and Right Brain Enterprises showed Clocky and Tocky at the LA and Chicago Shows. Nanda Home is represented by The Tate Group in Canada who are finishing up shows up north now! It was a super start to the New Year and we thank all of you who came out to support us.
