wow! iam more shocked that you found one for $5! i've been searching for a cuckoo to paint for years, but a working one sells for anywhere from $50-$250! you found a real bargain!
Really?? I thought it was a great price but I didn't think too much of it because it's just plastic. It's not one that the bird comes out and sings. The bird moves with the pendulum and it plays a song every hour. My mom had one when I was a kid but it was wooden and you had to pull the long acorn chains (for some reason I never knew) and the bird came out of a little door every hour. Ahh, nostalgia!
