Easy to understandBy counting down the stars and waiting for the screen to turn yellow, children learn what time they can get out of bed – as set by their parents. The Groclock teaches a healthy sleep routine which can transform families’ lives.

This has worked really well with my 27 month old. The owl is very cute and he now checks to see if it’s sleeping or awake. If it’s still sleeping (ie: it’s before 6am), he’ll play quietly in his room or go back to bed. However, the device is overly complicated for parents. You definitely have to read the instructions as it’s not intuitive at all — like holding the down button to lock it. None of the buttons are labeled and the symbols on the interface are vague. I would guess the designer has never actually watched someone try to use the product. I would also have preferred the old design of a sun and moon so it was more grounded in reality for my son instead of a sleeping owl (who technically should be awake at night).
2 year old started waking earlier and earlier, got to 5am. Then got the clock and from the first day it was 7am, we were obviously thrilled!! She really understands about the sun coming up and that is daytime. Its genius. A symbolic representation of time that she understood straight away.
I bought this but maybe didn't think it through. My child is used to sleeping in the dark. I set it to zero so there is no blue light but the yellow light wakes them on the days they are sleeping longer. This isn't ideal when they have had a bad nights sleep from being ill. I'd rather they had the opportunity to sleep longer in the morning. If it was easy to quickly change the wake up time this would be ok but it is very awkward to use.
I bought the clock for my nearly 3 year old Granddaughter for Christmas and my son said it is amazing, she would wake up early and shout for Mummy or Daddy and they would go in and tell her that Ollie hadn't woken up yet and she needed to go back to sleep until Ollie woke and the light turned blue. She probably didn't go back to sleep but she would wait until Ollie woke up before shouting for Mummy or Daddy. Great product.
This is easy to use and my boy loved it straight away. The owl going to bed is part of his bed time routine, and he won't get up till its orange. He'll spend an hour saying "is it orange yet daddy?" but he doesn't actually get up. The only down side is the lack of battery.
We’ve used the original version of this for our 3.5 yr old daughter for a year. I’ve never regretted that choice. It keeps her in her room until it turns yellow and she loves it. We bought this one for Christmas because she also loves owls, and her little brother is almost ready for his own clock. We were very disappointed that it didn’t ship to Canada, so we had someone in the UK ship it to us. The shipping in the UK was very quick, especially considering the timing (Black Friday. Right before Christmas). I was excited for an owl story to share with my daughter for her clock, but the story itself lacks the nuance that the original one had. It feels like the clock was forced into the story, therefore it doesn’t really belong... akin to trying too hard to make it work. Thankfully, my daughter already knows how it works, so she’s easily adapted to this new version.
I bought this about a month ago as my 2 year old kept waking really early. Quite quickly he understood that the blue screen meant he should be asleep and yellow screen means he can wake up. We haven't had a morning yet where he has woken up before the clock turns yellow. Best product I have bought for a while
Very easy to set and excellent design. My grandson understands the purpose of the clock
Really happy with the Tommee Tippee Groclock we purchased.It has really helped our toddler understand the difference between night and day and the to go to bed and when to get up. Really good to use when it is winter time and it's getting dark early on a nighttime / dark on a morning. Before using this our daughter would wake and shout us to ask if it was 'up time' - time to get up - now she can see when the clock goes yellow it's wake up time. A great way to help children understand prior to learning how to use a clock
Our 2 year old was waking in night one or twice and waking early since moving from cot to bed. We thought we would give this a go. Toddler loved the concept of Ollie and enjoyed putting him to sleep, however we didn't get instant results. I was perhaps too ambitious with the initial wake-up time. Now gradually moving later 10 mins at a time from her current wake up time and it seems to be working and currently no waking up in the night. Star rewards have helped too! The blue light colour is the only downside, but on lowest setting it is not too intrusive.
Excellent service, good quality item,.Very pleased.
My children have both had a Groclock since they were toddlers and they have been a god-send! I've just bought a third one because one of them had developed a bit of a strange buzzing noise (after 8 years of constant use) and my child (who is now 10 years old) refused to be without one. We were both delighted to see the new design. Would definitely recommend!
Incredible product as long as you don’t expect it to last more than 12 months apparently (according to a recent conversation with Tommee Tippee) when ours started turning green and flashing intermittently which seems to be a common problem.
I purchased two money box animals for grandchildren and found when wrapping them up for an Easter present yesterday the cap on bottom of one of them was broken and didn’t stay in place plus the hedgehog one wasn’t made as well as the fox. As they are wrapped up I can’t take photo but very disappointed had to put tape to keep cap in place
Our daughter is old enough to understand the concept of Ollie, when he’s awak and when he’s asleep so it’s easy to explain it’s time to go to bed because Ollie is asleep, or we don’t get up until Ollie wakes up...of course some mornings she wakes early abd we can hear her on the monitor asking Ollie to wake up but it’s better than shouting abd getting upset :)
Isn’t easy to set at all I’m ready to throw it out the window needs to be made more simple
I bought this, we were sent the Ollie the Owl one instead. I only realised after setting it up and my son is scared of the owl and wanted the stars and moon one. I should have checked before throwing away the packaging...
Been using this for a little while now and it’s made such a difference to our sleep routine. Thanks to the colour change my little one has now recognised when it’s time to sleep and when it’s not and will happily stay in bed until the light turns orange
Great product for teaching my little one when to get in to bed and when to get up. My daughter got used to it very quickly and was a good teaching tool My daughter loved the changing pics and it worked well at keeping my little girl in bed. was easy to set up. Would be great if it also ran off batteries.
I got this gro clock in the hope that it would help my daughter to sleep well and understand better when it is time to get up in the morning. She is 2 years old and it is fab!! Works fantastically and has definitely helped this family to get good nights sleep :)
My son loves this clock. He used to get out of bed all the time asking if it was morning yet. Now he knows to stay in bed until the owl comes on his clock and its orange. He runs in now to tell me its morning once it's orange. Really easy to set up.
For a 2 year old that won't stay in his own bed, this is a product that will definitely help. Took a few nights/mornings for him to understand that the sleepy owl means bedtime and awake owl means you can wake up. But no means no more 5am creep into my bed. The alarm is definitely effective in waking my lil man when he decides to sleep in, as well as very simple set up (for this sleep deprived mumma) within 3-4 nights my little one was waiting for the awake owl before disturbing my sleep!! Absolute game changer!!
This is perfect, my little girl is quite young but we are teaching her to use this! Hopefully when she gets the hang of it she will sleep later!!
I am so happy that I got this clock. It has great features which make it easy for children to understand when they should be sleeping and when to be awake. The clock comes with a little story book which helps to explain to children how the clock works. My little girl really likes the clock and always says goodnight to the owl when the clock turns blue.
I love the concept of this, seems like a great way for kids to understand appropriate wake up times. I did find the function buttons a bit fiddly to use and had to re-read the manual several times. It’s also verrrry bright, even when turned down, so was a bit of a distraction for my daughter who’s used to a pitch black bedroom.
I had always wanted one of these for my little girl cause as soon as she is up she leaves bed. So when it came it was very easy set up and the lite book that came with it was so cute! First night we used it i tucked my wee one into bed and told her when you awake up you need to check the clocks yellow and the owls awake. Which she did! Now she waits till the suns up before she leaves her room. I would definitely recommend this to any one who has a toddler!! Great little night like too.
Was pretty straightforward to set up following instructions. My 2 & 3 year olds share a room & our biggest problem was the first one to wake always woke the other.. The first night - great once it was blue they both were quiet & settled really well, the first morning however they forgot all about the clock! Again next night once blue both settled & quiet. We’d explained when Owl is blue its quiet/sleep time so the next morning the first to wake quietly got up and played with some toys in their bedroom. The next morning again one woke while Owl was still blue & after coming in to tell me Owl was blue they’d gone back to bed & dozed off! I’m so pleased & really hoping for a bit more sleep! & if not I was happy enough they played quietly until Owl was orange! Definitely a one to give time to work :)
I got this for my 2 year old son and although I feel he may be too young to fully understand it at the moment we have had great fun reading the little story that comes with it and talking about what the different colours mean. Very easy to use and I’m looking forward to this being a very important part of our sleep routine as he gets older
I bought this on recommendation from a friend for my grandson Maxwell. He loves it! It has made bedtime and wake up time understandable and fun. The book is lovely too. Max is just coming up to 3yrs old.
It arrived quickly and looks as I expected. The major issue I have with it is that my 3 year old has worked out how to get the child lock off and activate the sun, so at 3-4am he comes into our room to tell us the suns awake.
We bought this for our four year old and it’s made bedtime so much easier. Now she accepts that it’s nighttime even if there’s still daylight outside.
I bought this clock just over a month ago and it helped transform my 2 year old from a constant night waker-feeder to a full night sleeper. She understood the day time/night time aspect of the clock immediately without our explanation and now understands that she can have 'mummy milk' (as we call it) once the sun wakes up. She went from waking up every 45 mins-hour for the first 2 years of her life and by 2 it was just a habit. Now she sleeps 8:30-6am and sometimes wakes up a little before and shouts excitedly when she knows it is time. We're going to gently push the time backwards in the future, but this is a life changer. Thank you!
Great product, would be handy if it could also run on batteries to remove electric cables
I bought this a few weeks ago as my little boy was waking up 5.30-6 and was still tired but would not go back to sleep. From the very first night he has waited until the clock goes orange to get up! We’ve set it for 7 but it’s usually nearer 8 when he gets up! Being 8 months pregnant the extra couple of hours have been amazing! Would definitely recommend!
We had the original sun/star version for my elder daughter (now 5) and gave up waiting for her to agree to give it to her younger sister (2), so bought this one. Wanted the different design so she can feel special and not always have the same as her sister. Works just as well, she got it on the second night and now doesn’t make a peep until ‘my owl has wokened up!!!’
Brought this about a few weeks ago. The clock is good. The blindout curtain awful for the money we have paid. It did not stick on the window even though we thoroughly cleaned the window. Kept on falling off through the night which woke and scared the daughters. Clock is ok don't bother with the blindout curtain. If you have disposable income buy it if your on a budget I wouldn't bother.
Get more sleep!
How do you get your children to understand when it's time to get up? It's easy - stay in bed until you see the sun. The Groclock uses fun images of the stars and sun to communicate when to go back to sleep and when it's time to spring out of bed.
Reading a book is a great part of a bedtime routine. 'Sleepytime farm' helps children understand the importance of a good nights sleep encouraging them to stay in bed longer.
The brightness of the Groclock can be easily turned down or off completely and the handy child lock feature means no changing the time settings in the night.
