The adorable cuckoo clock is for my 8 yr. old granddaughter for Christmas. It's beautifully made and wonderfully detailed. The sweet bird not only "tweets", but there is an echo. And, the icing on the cake, a lovely melody is played after the "announcement" of the time. A different melody each hour. Not to worry, it's light activated - so the cuckoo "sleeps" during the night. It's amazing for the price. Highly recommended.
