About Sleep Trainers

Does the thought of the clocks changing fill you with dread?

We know how it is...

It can be really tricky to get your little one into a healthy nighttime routine that allows you both to get enough shut eye.

Add in some sneaky seasonal clock-changes, which can play havoc with a little one’s circadian rhythms, and you have a recipe for a less-than-perfect start to the day.

Fear not, our sleep trainers are set by you, so you can simply set them back or forward an hour and your little one should follow the stars to bedtime as usual.

No more 5am wake up calls

Our GroClock uses Ollie the Owl to help your little one learn when it's time to rise and shine and when to go back to sleep.

During the night, it displays a blue light and Ollie is surrounded by stars, and when it's time to wake up, the screen turns yellow and he opens his eyes!

Which sleep trainer clock is right for you?


Let's talk through the big differences between our GroClock and Connected Sleep Trainer Clock.

Connected Sleep Trainer Clock

With multiple alarm settings, soothing sounds, and a colour-changing clockface, you can control everything from your phone and earn yourself some extra sleep.


Colours and pictures help children who are too young to read an ordinary clock understand when it’s time to sleep and when it’s time to spring out of bed and play!

Top tips for toddler bedtime

Start with small increments

If your child is used to waking at 5.30am, don’t make the leap to a 7.30am wake-up straight away. Start with small time increments to help your child adjust and build a positive relationship with their GroClock.

Try to persevere

Don’t worry if your new routine doesn’t fall into place right away. Some children take a little while to ‘get’ what the GroClock is all about, so do keep giving it a go and gradually build it into their nighttime routine.

Give lots of praise

Use a reward chart to show your little one just what they’ve achieved. If they earn a sticker and a small treat each time they wait for their GroClock to turn from blue to yellow before getting up, they’ll be super motivated to stick to their new wake up time.

A Sky Full of Dreams

When little one’s are engaged in the ‘magic’ of the GroClock, they’re more likely to respond positively to it.

Try to make getting off to sleep an engaging performance. Read them a story, say goodnight to Ollie the Owl, whisper when he falls asleep, and wish him good morning when the clock’s face turns from blue to yellow.

A Sky Full of Dreams is a story that helps encourage little ones to stay in bed longer, which means more sleep for them and more sleep for you!

It's this combination of the simple glowing images and a story which has already made the GroClock a phenomenal success for hundreds of toddlers.
