Personally, I’ve got no problem with the traditional “ding-dong” when solicitors come to my front door (it’s the solicitors themselves that I have an issue with). But you nature-lovers out there might like something a little more organic when the doorbell rings.
These avian doorbells from China not only look like birds, they let out a variety of dissonant chirpy and tweety noises when a visitor arrives on your stoop.
While some might find the bird sounds soothing, I think I’d pull every last hair out of my head if I had to listen to one of these every time someone was at the door. My orange tabby cat, on the other hand, has already plunked down his credit card to order a dozen.
