If you saw these clocks in your local store, you’d think they were new designs for a child’s bedroom. Well, they are aimed at children, but these Zootimer clocks by George Nelson date back to 1965.

Now reissued by Vitra, the range includes The Owl Clock (Omar), The Fish Clock (Fernando) and The Tucan Clock (Talulah) – each shaped like the animal in question. They’re wall clocks, with a printed plastic face and sized at H 10.25 x W 11.5 x D 1.5 inches.

You can pick them up for around £72 each. Not cheap, but when your kids grow out if it, you’ll still have a design classic.
