The design and shape of cuckoo clocks are just about the same. Cuckoo clocks mostly have a birdhouse or log cabin design with a cuckoo bird that emits a 'cuckoo' sound with its wings flapping. However there are some cuckoo clocks that emit the sound of running stream. The weights that are found below the cuckoo clocks are traditionally casts in the form of pine cones and are mostly made of plastic (the same with the cuckoo bird and the clock's hands). The pendulum bob is designed to look like a carved leaf and the dials of the cuckoo clocks are usually marked with 'roman numerals' that are usually minuscule in size.
