Rated 2 out of 5Â by Rinoa For decorative purposes only.
Physically, this clock is adorable. The design reminds me of Alice of Wonderland. Very whimsical, pretty, and cute. It looks adorable when sitting on a counter or on your desk. However, it's not very functional. My clock's hands are poorly placed on top of each other. The long minute hand would constantly get caught on the red hand, and the short hand is not screwed on tight enough and is too loose. I mainly bought this so I can use it as a real clock, so this flaw left me feeling a bit disappointed. If you want this as part of your home decor, I would recommend getting it. But don't expect it to work like an actual clock. Sadly, mine is going back.

I agree with the previous reviewer - this is definitely a whimsical, Alice in Wonderland like design. I further agree that the hands are a too flexible to function properly right away. I however kept working on them and finally it is keeping time without issue. The most difficult thing about this clock is trying to set it and get a battery in. I am definitely keeping it though as it is just really cute and lighthearted. I display it on bookcase shelf with old books and an antique baby dish.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Betops unique and also functional
I bought the yellow one in the store and noticed all of the red second hands were a little bent and the minute/hour hands were kind of loose. However, it was SO gorgeous and fairy-tale, antique chic that I couldn't leave without it. I went home and was able to fix the loose hands very easily, within minutes. Unlike a few other reviews, my clock has functioned perfectly ever since that quick fix!! It's sitting on top of a few antique books in my house and I swear it receives a compliment every time. Two thumbs up for analog clocks in a digital world!
