The Clocky Alarm Clock
Nothing will wake you up like having to catch an alarm clock that runs around the room emitting pesky beeps, which is exactly what the Clocky alarm clock does. At the appointed time, it hurls itself off the dresser and will lead you on a merry chase around the room. And when you catch it, you have the option of hitting the snooze button and doing the same thing all over again in 9 minutes.

Flying Alarm Clock
If an alarm clock that runs around your room is too passé for you, how about an alarm clock that takes off at the set time and flies all over the bedroom. Once you have caught it after a thrilling aerial chase and deactivated the alarm, you are bound to be wide awake and ready to face up to any challenge.
Get up like Doc Holliday with the gun-operated alarm clock. When the alarm goes off, you get to switch it off by shooting at it with a retro-fitted old light gun whose tilt angle can handily also be used to set the time and alarm. So you can begin your day by scoring a bulls-eye every morning.

Wake n' Bacon Alarm Clock
Next on our list of the best novelty alarm clocks is the Wake n' Bacon. Who wouldn't like to wake up to the sizzling smell of bacon? You place a frozen piece of bacon in the alarm clock the night before, and it starts to get cooked 10 minutes before the time you are due to get up. This means that you are woken up by the delicious aroma of freshly cooked bacon rather than a shrill alarm. Ahhh! The perfect start to any day.
