Customer Review

on 10 April 2013
The Onaroo nightlight is a beautifully designed product but in my opinion it needs to go back to the drawing board if it is to be called a sleep trainer. It can work straight away as a night light but if you want it as an 'alarm / sleep trainer' it is not very simple. You can only set the waking up time a day in advance. So if you want to wake up tomorrow at 7.30am, then you need to press the button at 7.30am - What happens though is the day after you want to the child to get up at 7am and the time has already passed? I couldn't find an answer from the minimal instructions.
The three light colours (yellow, blue & Pink) are lovely & subtle if the child needs / wants to have the owl in the bed.
However, there lies my other problem with the product: the button underneath to turn on the light is also used to 'snooze' the alarm. So I am trying to train my child to stay in bed until 7am and he has the owl in his bed; but he wakes up at 6.30am, takes the owl, presses the button & turns on the light & therefore automatically cancels the waking up time / alarm.
I don't understand how this can have passed basic testing as it fails the 'sleep trainer' description in all accounts.
Wish instructions were more detailed but after a few days of testing it, I've decided to return & got my money back.
The two stars are for the lovely design & if you want to use it as a night light only...
