Gro-Clock Review & Giveaway


As a Mother you are introduced to new brands and products on a daily basis. You see advertisements everywhere from on the TV to on your twitter feed. There are so many opinions and products out there and I often find myself thinking do I need this product? Is it worth the money? The whole thing is overwhelming and can be a minefield.

That being said if the product is from The Gro Company you can pretty much guarantee this it's not just a product that you may need but it's one that you are are certainly going to want! 

The Gro-Clock is another innovative product from The Gro Company which is designed to teach children the correct time to go to sleep and wake up. If the screen displays the stars and is blue, it's bedtime/ nap time. If the screen is yellow and shows the sun, it's morning/ time to wake up. It also displays a real clock too so it's going to be of great use when your child is beginning to learn to tell the time too.





The key features of the Gro-Clock-
  • Glowing screen shows stars and the sun appear to communicate ‘sleep’ and ‘wake-up’ time.
  • Bedtime story book.
  • Stars go out one-by-one during the night to communicate the passing of time.
  • Option to set two separate wake-up times (weekday/weekend or night-time/day-time nap)
  • Key-lock option.
  • Silent operation.
  • Adjustable screen brightness.
  • Mains powered (UK adapter included)
  • Optional audible alarm feature.
  • Suitable from age 2+ years.

What we thought

We have been using the Gro-Clock for about two weeks now and have found it to be of great use to us. Although Noah doesn't usually have an issue with sleep and is a little young to understand it just yet, we've still found it to be a great addition to not only his bedroom but to his bedtime and naptime routine too.

For now we are just enjoying the bedtime story, the countdown feature and the soft nightlight glow but it's going to be invaluable as Noah gets older. It's such a fun and easy way to introduce him to a clock and I know we will get so much use from it.

The Gro-Clock is priced at £19.99 which is a bargain if you ask me!

  1. Oliver's now understanding moon and Sun = night and day, however these light evenings don't help really! Lol. Would love to get him to look at the clock instead! Think that has to be the best feature - being able to decide when the sun goes down and moon comes out! X

  53. We LOVE Gro products and love the clock too. I love how it comes with the story which makes it a bit more magical for the little ones. Unfortunately my daughter is too old for this now (and is actually pretty good at amusing herself and getting herself dressed if she gets up early) but we've put it away for youngest daughter.
    Great, thorough review!

    ReplyDelete
  101. My little girls a terrible sleeper she hates going to bed and she's always waking in the middle of the night asking if it's time to get up yet, especially now with the lighter mornings. So I like that it would help teach her about the passing of time and be able to recognize herself when it's time for sleep & time to get up.
