Cuckoo Cuckoo

I just popped over to Wooster Collective and saw Nathan Skiles' rubber Cuckoo clocks. These are fantastic!

It reminds me of the cuckoo clock that my mother and I bought in Virginia the summer after fourth grade. We had taken a real vacation (a rare thing in my family) to Williamsburg and then spent a day at Busch Gardens. We got to the Oktoberfest section and found a great store filled with imported cuckoo clocks. My mother and I are pretty thrifty but we couldn't help but get a modest model for our home. For many years we forgot to wind it, and now, one of the chains won't pull, and the cuckoo won't sing.
