Children’s wall clock

Learning How to Tell Time – Necessity of a Wall Clock in the Child’s Room

Whether you’re teaching your kid to tell the time or putting the finishing touches to a nursery, a wall clock with a child-friendly finishing is all you need.

Most parents are complaining that children prefer the digital clock instead of the analog one because it’s easier to read. Although we agree, we believe that every child needs to learn how to tell time sooner rather than later.

It seems that what confuses kids the most about telling time on a clock with hands it’s the fact that the numbers have two separate meanings.

When starting to teach a child how to tell time, first of all make sure the child can count to 60. Trying to teach the minutes in an hour before the child can count that high will be discouraging for the child and frustrating and unproductive for both of you. Another thing that helps is teaching the 5 times tables. Understanding 5…10…15…20…etc. will make it much easier to conceptualize the minute hand on a clock. Quickly being able to count by fives makes learning how to read an analog clock much easier.

If you find that your child is still struggling with telling time, consider buying him a watch to wear and replacing the digital clock in his room with an analog one. Save the clocks with Roman numerals for when he’s a little further along!

Teaching your child about hours and minutes doesn’t have to be a chore anymore. Everybody knows that children respond better to a playful manner of learning new things. Having a wall clock of their desire, shaped like a spaceman, princess, elephant or something else that the child loves will make the task of learning to tell time way much easier and pleasant.

Also, having a clock in every room is a smart way to stay on schedule. Wall clocks work well in almost any room so why not getting one for your child’s room?

Check our entire collection of children’s wall clocks and choose the one best suited for your child: butterfly, panda, motorbike, lion, elephant, ladybird – plenty to choose from!

Handmade Glass Clocks

Obique Handmade Glass Clocks

The handmade glass clocks from this collection are the perfect combination between a wall clock – functionality – and art. You can be sure that once you hang one of these on your wall, all eyes will be on it. The clocks have unique shapes given through the thermoforming technique. Being handmade and hand painted, you can rest assured that you have an absolutely unique clock.

The handmade glass clocks are made in an eye catching and very contemporary slim curving design – great on any wall in any room or in any home/office!

Modern flats are filled with glass items, from glass windows and doors to many other glass ornaments that make us feel at home. These glass objects can be categorized as articles for personal use, such as pottery, glasses in a kitchen, but their main function is generally utilitarian and not to decorate our homes. Our glass wall clocks are excellent examples of combining stylish forms with different designs in order to satisfy even the most refined expectations: flowers, abstract and geometric shapes. The wall clocks have varied forms and colours; they can undulate, be curved or straight to fit into any type of room or office. The wide range of models and colours enable you to find the best solution to suit your taste and needs.

Besides our beautiful wall clocks you have also the opportunity to choose a table clock. Our hand made table clocks offer you a great chance to select from various forms, colours and design. Some of them are even made to match the wall clocks, so you can create an exquisite matching set.

The high quality clock mechanism will enable you to be always on time and you can choose the colour, design to enhance the décor of your room or office.

The hand-made glass clocks constitute excellent gifts. They may be given as wedding presents for young couples, but they might be precious gifts for grandparents, too. These objects may also contribute to consolidating business relationships.

This clock is handmade and to a high design quality, sure to draw comments from everyone who sees it!

Taking care of glass clocks is as simple as taking care of ordinary glass: Don’t drop it!

Why recycled glass?

Why recycled glass?

The most important thing that everybody needs to know is that glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity; it does not degrade through the recycling process, so it can be recycled again and again.

Let’s see how the glass recycling process works:

  • The glass factory or the glass treatment plant receives the glass collected form the domestic or industrial consumers;
  •  The glass is sorted by colour and washed to remove any impurities;
  •  The glass is then crushed and melted, then molded into new products such as bottles and jars.

Recycled Glass

As simple as that!

All the glass products that you will find on our website are made from 100% recycled glass. We take great pride in our collection of recycled glassware and we believe that combining them you can have hundreds of beautiful sets to use as you please.

The jars and glass containers can be filled with flowers, branches, and stones to bring your little own garden indoors. Unleashing your creativity you can develop lots of mini terrariums sets!

If you have a green thumb but minimal garden space, why not create your own mini-world full of lush and beautiful plants by making your own terrarium? … Terrariums are easy-to-make, low-maintenance gardens, and can last almost indefinitely with minimal water.

For those passionate about the DYI and arts and crafts, our glassware can be successfully used for organizing the loose buttons and threads in your craft room.

In the kitchen, the products are perfect for storing your spices, herbs, pasta, cereals, grains and even fruits or sweets.

No party or get-together is complete without a nice delicious candy bar buffet. Imagination is you limit in how you can use and combine the glass items into creating a beautiful arrangement.

Including a candy buffet table at your celebration is a great way to make sure your guests remember your day long after it passes. Not only does it add a bit of nostalgic fun and whimsy when you include different types of candy and sweets, but it also acts as a conversation-starter and a way to turn people who once were strangers into friends with shared memories.

Create a candy buffet that even Willy Wonka would be proud of with our fabulous glass jars and containers!

Benji NO, who’s he

Benji NO

Hello there!

My name is Benji NO, you probably saw me around the website or on my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Benji.Obique ) and you’re wonder what’s the deal with me.

Benji NO

Hi, I’m Benji NO

Well, I am the new Sales Manager at Obique. I’ve been with them since I was only a baby, crying and nagging them all day long. Now, I’m an adult and I take my job seriously.

Here at Obique, I’ve learnt that wooden products are the best! We sell hundreds of them and I can say with my paw on my heart that I’ve sniffed all of them and they are great quality items. All the products designed and manufactured for children – from furniture to toys – are made only from natural wood of different essences and finished with water based paints and lacquers in order to be 100% child safe (I know they’re safe, I’ve eaten lots of them when I was younger… )

Besides the wide range of wooden items, we also have shabby chic or vintage style home decorations. I might be only 1 year old, but I still love them, as they bring that extra something to the room. Look, I have a clock from our collection on my wall, at home:

Adding glass products made from recycled glass was my idea and I’m pretty proud of it. As you can imagine, I am a big lover of the outdoors and I like the thought that our products are 100% safe for the environment, as they were all made from recycled glass. If you browse through our products you will see that we have hundreds of them and they are all beautiful and unique in their own way. That’s the thing with the handmade or mouth blown items – they are all different! Even if you take 2 items of the same model and you put them one next to the other, you will notice that they are slightly different – you should trust me on this one, my eyesight is really good!

I have some glass products of my own and I use them to keep my doggy treats as they look fantastic anywhere!

Benji's wish

My wish came true

One day we were working on this new collection of handmade glass items and a strange thing happened. My colleagues told me to close my eyes and make a wish, so I did. Of course I wished for a doggy treat – and guess what? When I opened my eyes, the biscuit was there on the table, ready for me to grab! Amazing!! Tend to believe that these items are magical…

Benji's treats

My treats

We are working on extending our range of products all the time, so you should follow me and my colleagues constantly as we might just surprise you.

Woof woof!
