5.0 out of 5 stars Never Too Old For Peanuts: A Holiday Clock Review, December 11, 2011
This review is from: Mark Feldstein PNXD8 Peanuts Holiday Dog House Clock, 8-Inch (Misc.)
I first spotted this Christmas Peanuts clock last year in a drugstore. This year I saw it again and bought one. The materials are plastic and the clock itself is a salad-size plate in diameter (about 6 inches). There are no numbers on the face but I haven't had any trouble reading it. The automatic sensor mutes the sound at night (or one can always leave the two AA batteries for the audio out because the clock runs on a separate AA battery). During the day, depending on the light level, you will hear Christmas chimes on the hour (there are 12 different songs). It doesn't chime the number of the hour but rather an excerpt of a holiday song, typically the chorus. The chimes range from 20 seconds to about 40 seconds in duration, depending on the song. The only con I can come up with is that one of the songs doesn't play the entire chorus but about 20 seconds in it cuts out*. My brain wants to complete the other half of the tune because it's like an unfinished sentence. (If that makes any sense.) A pro I can name is the unexpected inclusion of a detachable plastic foot to allow it to rest on a flat surface as an alternative to wall-mounting the clock. Most importantly, it also keeps accurate time thanks to the quartz movement.

The Christmas songs include:

Jingle Bells
O Come, All Ye Faithful
O Christmas Tree
Angels We Have Heard on High
O Little Town of Bethlehem
The Twelve Days of Christmas
Hark! The Herald Angles Sing
Silent Night
Deck the Halls*
The First Noel
Joy to the World
We Wish You a Merry Christmas

As for tone, the chimes sound very much like an old-fashioned music box.

This is a very charming clock that offers the nostalgia of a Peanuts holiday for those of us who grew up with fond memories of watching the TV specials each year. Any fan would appreciate this gift.
