Top Customer Reviews
My children received this for Christmas, and it stopped working completely within 2 weeks - both rotating dial and music box. They played with it all of 4 times, it was not a heavily used item.
We called customer service and the line had been disconnected. Sababa Toys website does not accept any customer service inquiries (and has not been updated since 2007).
We then called Fisher-Price and were told that the Fisher-Price Music Box Teaching Clock was a licensed product to Sababa Toys, and that since FP did not design or manufacture the toy, they were unable to provide a replacement. The FP rep tried to contact Sababa Toys, herself, using their direct number and learned they were out-of-business.
They offered a voucher for the purchase price of the toy. So, it wasn't a complete wash, but we're still extremely displeased with this toy and with Sababa Toys for the false advertising (The FP logo and quality seal are featured prominently on the packaging in no less than 6 different places) and also with FP for licensing their name to such garbage.
This new remake is made of light weight plastic and the decals are not one solid piece on the base which leaves open seams. The sides of the bottom base contains no decals at all.
Another downfall is that this clock does not have the tick-tock sound like the original. It does play the same song but is missing that wonderful tick-tock melody in the background.
Unlike the original 1968 model (wood covered in paper lithographs), the frame is now made of red plastic. The vintage pictures are actually various sized stickers on the plastic. The yellow handle at the top of the clock is firmly attached to the clock; I made a point to try to pull it from the clock and was unable to remove it. The clear plastic over the face of the clock is secured to the frame by four screws in each corner.
The clock can be wound from the back, and it still plays the original tune, "Grandfather's Clock", which was a folk song written in 1876. On the front, the clock has yellow hands which can be moved with the knob. Like the original, the hour hand moves every time the minute hand makes a revolution manually. It's definitely not precise, but it gives children the idea of what a clock should do.
While I don't expect most toys to stand up to the wear and tear of a toddler, I have noticed the stickers are starting to wear away at the edges of the clock base, pediment, and roof after only a month of infrequent use.
Overall, I am quite pleased with the clock.

Broke the first time my son played with it. Total junk. All plastic. Nothing like the sturdier original version. I found one on eBay. Looks great and works perfectly. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Campbell
The clock's song goes WAY too fast, even if you only wind it twice. Also, it doesn't tick like the original one.Published 11 days ago by Betsy Shad

This is an ok toy... My 1 year old
Liked the music and my older kids used it to practice time, but always seemed to be a bit off.. Just not very well built I guess.
When I ordered this I thought it was going to be like the old wooden ones...it looks identical, but it's made of plastic and cardboard. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
