Tick Tock Owl

I collect Clocks and I love Owls! This Clock, a gift from the Daughter who owns Ghost the Dog, was a perfect gift for me!

The Rokr Owl Clock, Kit #LK503

Some Assembly Required…

Or rather, this Owl Clock kit was a perfect gift. It is a product of Robotime, a company that specializes in designing, manufacturing and selling Wooden Puzzles and educational toys for Kids… and Adults.

The kit consists of high-quality plywood pieces that are laser cut. You push them out  and then assemble them according to the detailed instructions. My only complaint is with the Instruction Manual. The diagrams are not very large and are a bit vague sometimes. Robotime should outsource their manuals to LEGO or IKEA

Fortunately, a few people have posted  YouTube videos to show how they built the clock. Had I  spent a few hours watching these, maybe the gears on my clock would turn the way they are supposed to. Or maybe they would work if I could understand the manual’s  ‘Timing instruction’ for the 30 minute timer. English is not the first language of whoever wrote these instructions.

Oh well, the clock does keep accurate time and is very handsome! Some day The Car Guy will troubleshoot the sticky gear problem for me.
