(Why don't we show the price?)

Retailers have the legal right to set their own prices, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be communicated. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's “minimum advertised price,” the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you place the item in your cart, or in some cases, proceeding to the final checkout stage. Taking these steps allows Appliances Connection to show you our price consistent with our goal of always offering you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products. You are not required to purchase the product to see our lowest price, simply just remove it from your cart.

Doesn't move like a real clock

By  from undisclosed  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 2

(Same comment as for Shape Sorting Clock): The hour hand doesn't move when you move the minute hand! My whole point of buying this was to show my grandkids how to tell time, and a really big part of that is having them move the minute hand and see how the whole thing MOVES! Now I have to show that on a real alarm clock I bought, and have them kind of compare it to this one. Extremely disappointing.

Great for teaching little one how to tell time and early math concepts. Also, love the extension activities listed on the packaging. Size is smaller than expected.

Our 3 year old grasped the telling time concept in minutes with this fun toy, and some help from Grandpa of course.

Not Just the Time

Recommended Product:

We bought the Shape Sorting Clock for our grandson because we were impressed with the old-fashioned wooden toy that teaches little ones to tell time and to learn about shapes while doing so. Very impressive. A small problem when we opened the packaging as the hour indicator was stuck. After contacting Melissa & Doug, a lovely representative said no problem and they would completely replace the item. It was shipped to our home and we now have a fully functional toy for our grandson. The Customer Service and desire to do right by their customers makes them a company well worth supporting. Kudos to them and their representative! Thanks, Melissa & Doug for striving to be a cut above all the other manufacturers and instilling your workers with not just pride but permission to immediately and cheerfully address an issue and resolve it. Love your products!

Not Customer Friendly

By  from Philadelphia  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 3

As one would expect, pieces came up missing little by little. I contacted customer service and asked if they provided replacement pieces. They emailed me a reply stating that the clocks were HAND MADE and that the pieces were not interchangeable. Really, then why was I able to find one at a thrift store that perfectly fit my clock base. It is evident to any one with a brain that these pieces are made with a common design. I felt as though they thought I was a 3 year old. I would have gladly recommended this product had I been treated with respect. If it isn't practical to sell the pieces individually then just tell me that. I would have gladly purchased another one. But when you lie to me and treat me like an idiot, well then you lose my business. I hope all of my 4000+ facebook contacts take the opportunity to read this.

Perfect toy for ages as young as two. I am always looking for educational toys for Jackson. I love this toy because it is a transitional toy for it has shapes, colors, number and introduces time telling.

I absolutely adore this clock, my mother bought this for my daughters. My 3yr old is now teaching my 20month old how to tell time with this clock and it really is an educational toy for them to learn.
