A Great product that I thoroughly recommend
Such a simple idea, but so very effective.
Each of my children have one in their rooms. They love that they can see how many stars are left and decided whether to go back to sleep or play quietly in their bed ( usually on 1star).
It's especially good for keeping day sleeps consistent. Both of my children sleep 2 hours a day because of it.
Easy to set up & use. Easy for the kids to understand a visual cue like this. Variable light levels.
A battery back up would be a big help. Light level randomly resets to 0 every so often and needs to be reset to preferred setting.
Absolutely fantastic for early rising toddlers!!!
Our toddler has always been an earlier riser and to be honest that fits in well with our lifestyle/work but about two months ago she started getting up too early, approx 5.15am.
So I got out her Gro Clock and set it all up. Explained to her that if she wakes up and the sun isn't up yet, that it is still sleep time and she needs to go back to sleep. Well, she has been so good with it since. Every morning when she wakes up she yells out excitedly that her sun is up, lol! We have also noticed she is sleeping in later on some days now too, probably because she is waking at 5ish, seeing the sun isnt up and going back to sleep.
What an awesome invention!!!
Help keep kids in bed!!!
overall i would say the Gro clock has been benificial to us. i think our son was a little young to understand it at first (2 years) but definately by 2.5 he understood and it was a great way to teach him to sleep in later than 5.30am!!!
that you program what times work for you and you can program 2 different settings for day sleeps. also like it has a parent lock so that little fingers cant change the time.
the light even though turned down is quite bright. also our son is just on 3 and has learnt that if the parent lock is on if he just unplugs it and plugs back in then it disarms the lock and he can turn on the sun. a wall mounted clock would be good.
This clock is a fantastic idea, especially for us Queenslanders who suffer children's body clocks waking up with the sun at 4.15am!! The idea is that the clock has a dim blue lit face with a moon and stars on it for when it's sleep time. You can adjust the timer so that at the appropriate time, the moon and the stars change to a smiley orange sun and the child knows it's ok to get out of bed now.
This has been semi successful but a bit perseverance with the child and taking them back to their room if they want to get up while the moon is sti...ll on display it should hopefully work. Our 3 year old was very excited about the smiling moon and stars and sun so that's half the battle won. The clock comes with a children's story book so they get the idea behind the clock's characters. Easy to program. Looks nice. Our three year old is excited about it The blue light is a little bright and can make it a bit difficult for her to go back to sleep when she wakes up. We have solved this by putting a slightly higher pillow next to her to bock direct light in her face.

Questions & Answers
Why does my grow clock not count down properly. When I go in in the morning there is still like 4 stars left even after the alarm to wake up has gone off?
Does anyone else’s clock loose time? I’ve only
Had it set up for a week and every night it has lost time so it never turns to sunlight in the morning as it’s saying that it’s still the middle of the night! I’m disappointed in this product seeing as I had heard such good things about it and it wasn’t cheap at all :(
