Whimsical wall clocks get a bit of a bad rap in the design world, like that Felix the Cat clock that became a b-movie cliché in the 1980s. But there are lots of cute and colorful wall clocks out there, and personally, I think it softens the blow of finding out you're already 10 minutes late when the timekeeper makes you smile. Here are a few great examples I wouldn't mind keeping me on schedule.
Clockwise (of course) from top left: Modern baby owl clock from Decoylab; Polaroid clock - Flying Free from jerseymaids; Cupcakes coloring clock from UncommonGoods; and Blocks clock from Chiasso.
I realize that 3 of these clocks don't have numbers, which probably says something about my dislike of rigid schedules. But they'd look great on the wall anyway.
