This cuckoo clock features Hansel & Gretel’s visit to the witch’s cottage. The little gingerbread house with the red shingled roof is lovingly decorated with many small details. This clock can be wall mounted or used on a table or mantle. The cuckoo door opens on the hour and the cuckoo firsts “tweets”, followed by its call which Echoes, telling the number of the hour. Afterwards one of the 12 alternating melodies are played. On the side you will find a switch to turn off the music separately, or both the cuckoo and the music. Through a light sensor the clock is automatically quiet after dark, although the clock keeps running. This clock is run by a quartz battery clockwork that runs on three 1,5V batteries – Size C (not included).
