Elli writes…Â I chanced upon theÂ Jet Set children’s wall clock at Habitat recently and it got me thinking about a wall clock for the nursery. We had a memorably twee Beatrix Potter one in our childhood bedroom, which is actually still hanging at home (my mum is a hoarder), but the right wall clock could be a really nice feature in a room.
For Â£45, the Jet Set tells the time in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo.Â It may look a little Wall Street in these more financially-responsible times, but it’s a fun idea.
Vitra Talulah the Toucan Wall Clock has a fabulous name to match her eye-catchingÂ plumage. She is a design classic from the American modernist designer George Nelson, which makes the higher price tag of Â£73.60 easier to swallow.Â Also in the Zoo Timers range areÂ Omar the Owl andÂ Elihu the Elephant, both available from Nest for the same price.
The Colour Stickers Numbers Wall Clock from Next isn’t designed for children but it’s big and bright enough to make time-telling fun. Â£25.
The Rocket Wall Clock from John Lewis is fun for your mini astronomy lover, if a little theme-y. Â£24. (And while we’re there, I’ve mentionedÂ the over-sized Moo Alarm Clock from John Lewis before. It’s only Â£14.50 and you could spend your change on a shelf to put it on.)
Finally, for an inspirational message with your daily tick-tock, the Ben and Gracy wall clock tells you to ‘love being different’. Â£19.95
