I was so pleased to have been sent one of these to review
as eldest has a tendency to wake on the early side! Sometimes you just crave the extra shuteye as a parent. Once children are awake its full on until
bedtime again so if there is anything which will help them get some more
zzzzzzz in the morning then it should be snapped up and sampled straight away!
I love how the groclock is teamed
with a very helpful little book, which explains how important getting enough
sleep is. The book also illustrated how
having a groclock in particular helped Percy the pig have more energy and be
less grumpy because he was finally getting the right amount of rest as he knew
when he needed to get up.
With a useful book described in
simple terms, perfect for children, and worked alongside the groclock we are
reaping the benefits already. The
groclock is very appealing to my son he likes the screen with pictures of the
sun and stars, for day and night. I was
impressed that the groclock also has little stars, which go out one at a time
throughout the night so you know time is passing and an idea if you have lots
of sleep left or not as long. I did not
know it had this feature, the groclock has really thought of everything!
You have the option to set an
audible alarm but we keep it on silent mode just on the off chance eldest
decides to sleep longer than the sun appearing, well you never know! So good to keep everything peaceful just in
case, I do love extra sleep after all.
We do not have blackout blinds so
it is heavenly that even though it looks light through his curtains the first
thing eldest does now is look at the groclock.
Usually it would be straight in our room, clomping down the landing, on
occasion waking his little brother up in the process – who in turn would then
be grumpy as he did not have enough sleep!
If the groclock is still on the star picture he waits patiently for the
change to happen or falls back to sleep.
With a new comfortable pillow and
an eldest son sleeping longer and more soundly. I wonder if my Missing Sleep name will become redundant… am sure
my youngest will make sure I continue to look sleep deprived and haggard for
awhile yet though! Although maybe if I
cut back on his soft toy habit, he might have more room in his bed and stop
The days have been easier now
eldest is not as drained, he is getting to the end of each day happier and
better behaved because he has not been over tired. He has more energy to play and learn.
You can find out more information
from The Gro Company website and purchase there for a RRP of £29.99 (a small
price to pay restoring sleep to your household!). But I have seen the groclock on offer for £21.95 on Amazon, which
is even better, not sure how long the special price will last though!
