We bought the Grobag Egg and have found that it's about 2 degrees C higher than it should be. I'm sending it back to the manufacturer. I emailed them and they replied saying that it should be accurate from between + or - 1 degree C.

Apparently they test all the Eggs that come back to them in a `draft proofed box for approximately 3 hours with a thermocouple attached to a calibrated Digitron thermometer' and observe the temperature readings through a window.

They apportion typical reasons for inaccurate readings down to customers handling the sensor, errors in other measuring devices, differences in air current and sunlight!

All I can say is that ours sat undisturbed out of direct sunlight on a bedside table, in a small bedroom, that had a window and door - much like most peoples nursery.

I tested the Egg against a mercury thermometer, a digital one and our room Digistat. The Egg was 2 degrees C over the other 3.

I think perhaps the manufacturer should test the Egg in a real life environment and not a lab, and should not set the display to read to 1 decimal place when they only regard it accurate to + or - 1 degree C.

It's not something that gives us peace of mind and in my view it's a fun gadget only and should not be relied on for accurate room temperature readings. We paid £20 for it and that's too expensive for what is really only coloured light. Even if they got the accuracy to within + or - 1 degree C, that's a significant temperature difference and you can get more accurate thermometers for a lot less.

I await the results of their test on our Egg.

I purchased an Egg for my little boys room over a year ago. The product has worked for 24 hours a day, seven days a week since we plugged it in - we never touch it and it has been fine. We have had some power cuts and it just comes back on again afterwards and has been great. It looks really funky in his room and is very useful at night-time as we can just pop our head around his door and instantly check the room temperature without disturbing him. We checked the temperature against some other digital thermometers and we found that all vary by a degree or two, depending upon how they have been calibrated. We have found our Egg to be quite accurate and certainly as a quick visual temperature indicator has been very helpful.

I was just browsing Amazon the other day and came across all the negative reviews for the grobag egg, I was concerned about the reports of inaccurate readings so I thought I had better check ours. Our baby is due in a couple of weeks, we didn't actually purchase the egg it was a freebie when we purchased a couple of grobag sleeping bags from Kiddicare. I tried it out with a couple of other thermometers and it seems spot on. I thought I'd let people know that not all these eggs are problematic. I've been using it in our room since we got it several months ago, I really like the soft glow it gives out.

The temperature is always wrong, at least 2 o 3 degrees higher than all other measures in the house. Even when it was 16degrees the egg still read 21degrees. If we went by this the baby would freeze!

Why can't manufacturer's make products that just work?! This thermometer is a classic case in hand. It looks fantastic but doesn't give the correct temperature, and therefore as a product it fails in it's one reason to exist. As a bloke I thought I'd correlate it's temperature with two digital barometric thermometers when I noticed during the first day that the egg was giving me a reading of 24 degrees celcius when it was obvious that the room wasn't that warm - the egg constantly gave a reading between 1 -3 degrees celcius higher than the other thermometers, which incidently correlated.
When the product's manufacturer emphasises that your baby mustn't be too hot or cold, then their product could be construed to be dangerous, let alone useless.
Unfortunately, many mothers (and some fathers also I imagine) will be seduced by this products looks alone. I, however, have more of a pragmatic and stoic approach to products - if they don't work, then I don't want one, however pretty they look.

i've had my doubts for some time, and now as we're heading into winter the temperature reading never drops below 22 degrees even when i'm shivering in the middle of the night. as far as i can see there must be some sort of either build problem or a fundamental design flaw perhaps with the location of the temperature sensor in the device that causes it to always inaccurately shows a number of degrees above the actual room temperature. even a basic colour changing strip on our wall shows more accurate results than this vacuous (and potentially dangerous) item. DO NOT BUY.

We recently purchased have Groegg and have noticed that it always displays the wrong temperature by 4.5C! We also bought a Phillips thermometer for the bath and we also had a few Thermometer Strips, the ones that come free with Growbags. We found that these all agreed with each other but that the Groegg was always 4.5C warmer.
Now 4.5C is a massive amount to be out for a product that's sole purpose is to instantly reassure parents that their child is warm enough. I highly recommend that parents with a Groegg firstly check it against another thermometer and hope that the one I have is just from a faulty batch.
