The following is a transcript of the instructions that came with Talking Bobble Clock, from Giftables by Totes.  Despite the Texas address given for Tandy Brands on the box, the clock itself was made in China.  Apparently, Tandy didn't think it was worth their American employees' time to proofread the instructions.
