The Story of an Extra Loud Alarm Clock - The Screaming Meanie

In the early 1990’s, inspired by a truck driver who struggled to wake up at the odd hours required for his job, we developed the technology to produce extremely loud noise from a tiny box not much larger than a deck of cards. The Screaming Meanie was born soon after and became a success story with over a million units sold. Twenty years later, the Screaming Meanie is wildly popular and still the best product of its kind on the market. Where once the vast majority of our business was with long haul truckers, this unique product has proven to possess a wider appeal. Students, salesmen, doctors, plumbers, repairmen; a Screaming Meanie buyer can come from any background and any occupation.

At Screaming Meanie, we think of ourselves as willing to question convention and think outside the box. Over the years we’ve kept an eye out for other products and ideas which appeal to us based on quality, value and maybe a sense of humor. But which product will enjoy runaway success comparable to the Screaming Meanie?

We’ve decided to select the most interesting, cool, appealing products we come across, add them to our site, and stand behind them with the level of responsive customer service for which Screaming Meanie is known. Over the next weeks and months, don’t be surprised to see some really unusual things here. We like doing things differently, after all. We think our customers and site visitors will appreciate our sense of adventure, and our taste for underlying product value with an edge. We hope you find something you can’t resist.
