 TOY GA-KO Alarm Clock - Import Offer $129.90 each

NCS Product Synopsis
Original Update: August 15, 2008

«©NCSX» In the recent Metal Gear Solid 4 game, there's a scene where Naomi Hunter and Sunny Gurlukovich cook three sunny-side up eggs on a frying pan. The tender sequence is punctuated by a cooking timer in the shape of a no-nonsense duck. To get the cooking time for the eggs proper, Sunny sets the GA-KO Timer so that it'll shake and sing out "Gah-Gah" in a child's voice when the eggs are ready. Ducky is basically quacking in Japanese when it blurts out "Gah-Gah."

   Konami brings the GA-KO Timer home this summer but the company transitions the product into a more useful GA-KO Alarm Clock which tells time and gets you out of your slumber with insistent "singing" sounds. When the duck is mouthing off, its head will also shake from side to side as if it's saying "no" but he really means "yes." As in, "Yes, get up already and go to school/work/play." Note that the duck's wings are on its hips which means you better get up when the alarm sounds off.

   The product measurements are H:160mm x W:102mm x D:107mm and the clock runs on two AAA batteries and one AA battery. The two AAA batteries go into the exposed slots on the bottom of the clock while the AA battery goes into the center slot that is hidden by the removable plastic cover. The clock is constructed of ABS but the timepiece face cover is polycarbonate. The GA-KO Clock is limited to only 2000 units.
Japanese Title: ガーコアラームクロック
