5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Bought this for my son to build as he was doing a project on common household objects that had evolved over time. We made a sun dial, a water clock, a candle clock and this mechanical clock. Its time keeping is not that great but the principles of a pendulum oscillator, the escapement control and the gear train are ideally demonstrated, Was ideal for what we wanted.

I loved the first one as it worked till it fell off the shelf and smashed. The next 4 couldn't be assembled and the clockwork mechanism didn't work so was very disappointed. The design is beautiful and it was such a shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to mechanics, 6 Jan 2014

My 4 year old daughter got this as a gift we had lots of fun putting it together, and watching it work. I'm not sure how durable it is or how well it keeps time, to be honest I don't think she could stand to sleep with it in her bedroom its really loud. However it's great for demonstrating the mechanics of a clock, I'm sure we'll be taking it apart soon and rebuilding.

Good educational toy; challenges and teaches. I bought this for my 8 yr old son and he really enjoyed putting it together. It wasn't overly difficult but he was interested in the mechanics of how it worked. Good job and good value.

It may not suit every child but this clock has fascinated my grandson who is 5 1/2 and who, having been shown how, has put it together and taken it apart many times. And it really works with a loud tick!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, educational toy, 11 April 2014

Clock is easy to assemble and it looks exactly as it is shown in the picture. I wanted to explain to my son how clocks work, so it was a perfect present. Beware: It is not useable as a real clock. Pendulum at the back works well, but it creates so much noise, you can hear it even if you place clock in other room. really annoying after about 5 minutes.

Very well made kit but not that easy to put together. But then there's fun in helping your child make it up. Main problem is that the tick is very loud so the clock cannot be left in bedroom overnight. Facinating, educational toy
