The clock feels pretty good quality and comes with a battery installed (just pull out a tab for it to start working). The ticking is so quiet you can hardly hear it, which is a plus for me. The numbers are big and bold in bright colours, and the hands have the words "hours" and "minutes" printed on them. In the middle of the clock face it also has o'clock, 5 past, 10 past, 1/4 past etc to help your child read the time successfully.
The reason I gave the clock four stars not five is that although the words "20 past" etc have been printed on the clock face, they get covered by the clock's hands so you can't actually read it if it is exactly 20 past at the time. I will upload a picture to show what I mean. Still a great product though.
