Good, Better, Best: Cool Cuckoo Clocks

One of my best friends had a cuckoo clock growing up, and I just thought it was the coolest thing ever. But as an adult, I've never been into the whole German-kitsch look, so I was never particularly interested in bringing a cuckoo clock into my life.

But right now, it seems, everyone wants to put a cute, modern spin on the iconic design. Combining surprising colors and materials with the traditional cuckoo clock silhouette, these products would add a playful touch to your decor. Here are a few finds to suit three difference price points.

Good: Who'd have thought that the discount-store behemoth could create such a stylish clock? This Wal-Mart Retro Cuckoo Clock ($14.88) has lacy detailing that echoes older designs, but it doesn't have a cuckoo sound.

Two even better cuckoo clocks, so

Better: Offering more traditional design cues, the Urban Outfitters Starlight Cuckoo Clock ($48) has a modern silver gleam and features images of pine cones, woodland creatures, and a pop-out bird.

Best: The Diamantini Domeniconi Cuckoo Clock by Pascal Tarabay ($278) is the smartest of the bunch. You can opt for a soft, subtle cuckoo or a louder tone, and the bird quiets down at night using a light sensor. It's available in orange, white, black, stainless steel, and light blue.

None of these look like the beautiful German ones you can buy in Germany. :-(

A quiet cuckoo clock is better than a loud one by far. My dad has a vintage Black Forest clock that is incredibly loud. I'm prone to waking up in the middle of the night, and I can totally hear that evil bird when it starts squawking at 3 in the morning.

I've actually seen the Urban Outfitters one in the store and it looks *really* cheap and plastic. I prefer the Walmart one as well...
