      A cute clock

      Having a quirky kitchen with kitsch utensils and bright coloured appliances we could not resist this bright coloured clock made by Karlsson. We loved the funky bright design and decided it would fit really well in the kitchen. The clock was really easy to set up and to be honest, although you can move the blocks once you have it set up there is no need to change the design layout, you will only need to move the block to change the battery. ==Price and availability== The cost of the clock is £35 and you can buy it from online such as ebay and Amazon. I would be wary of buying a second hand one as you will not have any sticky pads and the movement in the middle is quite delicate. ==Description== The clock is attractive and stylish but I would hardly describe it as robust. In the kit you get 12 plastic cubes (6 x 6 x 5.5 cm) and these are really vividly coloured. The centre block is always silver and this features the movement hands. The clock is battery-powered (1 x AA, not included) and this fits in the back of the silver block. The blocks are light and coloured all the way around so it does not matter which way you look at them, they are the same all the way over. The blocks can be arranged with little sticky back pads. These are supplied in the kit. They hold the blocks but we had to use extra sticky pads that we bought separately in order to attach the middle block as after about 6 months it needed a fresh battery. That is what you get for cheap shop brand batteries. There is a little wheel at the back that helps you set the time. The hands make a noise as they move but this is minimal compared with other clocks I have encountered. ==Overall== This is a great looking clock, I just find the sticky pads a little annoying and I would rather the clock come with more pads as I do worry the pads will not hold. It does make the clock easy to hang though as you do not need any nails. The clock is accurate, well as accurate as far as a clock with no numbers can be! It has a minute and an hour hand and these move around the blocks. We have ours in the same design as the picture, like a diamond but you can have it as a letter, or as a square. You do get to play around and when we bought it we were really excited when we bought it as we wanted to experiment it. The long and short of it though is that we are not that imaginative and found the clock looked best in the way they advertise it! You can have the blocks as close or as far away as your imagination will let it! Overall - a great looking clock.
