The Coolest Kids Clocks for the Baby Nursery Room and Beyond
Kids clocks can play a huge role in your nursery wall decorating. They come in all shapes, large and small sizes and in any style you can dream of! While a traditional wood cuckoo clock might tickle a child, I'm not sure that the cuckoo's hourly announcements are the best thing in the world to let a baby sleep without being disturbed. There will be plenty of time later to shop for a kid alarm clock. A colorful kid wall clock that is quiet and compliments your nursery decor is much more desireable at this stage.
There are unique, novelty clocks to blend with practically every baby nursery theme around.
Some kids clocks are geared toward a baby boy's nursery theme such as a cowboy nursery theme or a baby girl's kitty cat theme.
Many wall clocks are designed around characters from favorite movies, television shows, cartoons or story books. Popular kids games such as dominoes, Monopoly, or Candy Land make great novelty kids clocks. Cartoon clocks and walls clocks with game board backgrounds make familiar faces for large decorative wall clocks. Big yellow smiley faces brighten a room like a ray of sunshine on a rainy afternoon.
If you have a child that doesn't like loud noises, a talking novelty alarm clock or a clock radio may be better than a kid alarm clock with a clanging bell or buzzer. Waking to the sound of people talking on the radio or to music may start the day on a much better note than being jolted awake with irritating noises. There are kids talking alarm clocks that will even allow you to record a message to be played at the set time.
If you are looking for an unique wall clock to give as a shower gift, find out what baby crib bedding set your friend has chosen and personalize a lovely clock to match. This will be a treasured item to be kept for many years! One that may be used in many children's rooms over and over again.
If themed or novelty kids clocks are not your taste there are certainly other choices available. For a mom who surrounds her infant with luxury nursery items engraved sterling or crystal clocks for a shelf or table might be more suitable.
Nothing would be more elegant, timeless or collectible than a petite collectible clock monogrammed with baby's initials. If space allows, engrave the baby's birth information and name. This may not be as eye catching as a brightly colored Sesame Street or Snoopy or Dr. Seuss nursery theme clock, but if chosen carefully will be an heirloom to pass from mother to child for generations.
This may be the start of a collection of kids clocks! How I wish I had kept my Big Bird Windup Alarm Clock that I got one Christmas. There's no way to know how much that piece would be worth today to a collector of Sesame Street Memorabilia. I know how much it would mean to me to be able to show it to my baby and share my childhood memories with her.
That's the key, it's not so much about decorating the nursery wall with unique, large, decorative kids clocks. It's about designing a space that they can relate to and remember with fondness when they are grownups with kids of their own.
