Worth every penny!
20 March 2019
Well what a brilliant investment this turned out to be! After months and months of horrendously early starts to our day, we’re now getting a straight 7+ hours sleep thanks to this ingenious gadget.
We weren’t sure that our 2.5 year old would understand the concept of the Gro Clock, but we underestimated the attraction of both the device and the neat little accompanying book.
The book tells the story of Percy Pig who is always grumpy as he keeps waking up too early in the morning. His farmyard friends club together to get him a special clock that tells him when it’s time to get up. As a result, Percy is no longer grumpy and joins in all the fun activities with the other animals.
Our little guy totally engaged with the story and was really excited to learn that he was getting a special clock as well.
The clock is easy to program, and setting it has become a fun part of the bedtime routine. Our little guy presses the buttons and watches, fascinated, as the sun disappears and is replaced by the star. Then we have to join him saying “Night night, Sun, see you in the morning!”
We have no idea what goes on in his room before 6.30 am, but to be honest we don’t care! All we know is that he’ll come bounding into our room at 6.30 am on the dot shouting “Wake up, wake up! The sun’s out!”
Of course, it didn’t work all the time straight away, so we hit on the idea of introducing a reward chart to reinforce the message. He gets a gold star every time he stays in bed until the sun comes up and a special treat when he scores 5 in a row.
Fingers crossed, the combination of book, clock and gold stars seems to be working, and we are all less sleep-deprived than before.
