The new Gro Clock is one of our most popular baby accessories.
A challenge that all parents have is.. how do you get your children to understand when it’s time to get up?
SIMPLE “stay in bed until you see the sun!”
The new Gro Clock uses fun images of the stars and sun to communicate when to go back to sleep and when it’s time to get up. Due to popular request, the new model of the Gro-Clock has a new feature allowing parents to choose whether or not to display the digital clock during the usual ‘stars to sun’ countdown. So for older children, they can now start to learn digital time, as well as look for the arrival of the sun!
The Gro clock also comes with a nicely illustrated book to help to encourage children to stay in bed longer, which means more sleep for them and more sleep for you! “No more getting up at 5am!”. Gro Clock’s combination of the simple glowing images and the bedtime story book which has already made the Gro Clock a phenomenal success.

Gro Clock F.A.Q.
If the power is turned off, does the Gro Clock remember the correct time?
When the power goes off, the Gro clock ‘freezes’ all the settings, including the main time, the wake up times and brightness settings. Therefore if the power goes off for a few seconds and then back on, the time will have been paused for a few seconds. However if the power was off say for 3 hours, then the time will be out by 3 hours and will therefore need re–setting.
If I need to keep the power on to maintain the correct time, should I worry about electricity consumption?
No, your Gro Clock uses LEDs so it’s naturally energy efficient. However it also has a built–in energy saving mode. One hour after the wake up time has activated, the clock automatically turns off coloured LED lights and runs on a tiny amount of electricity. To re–activate just press any key and the colour LEDs will come back.
What is the difference between the night–time and day–time nap mode?
In a way they are very similar because the clock works in exactly the same way in both modes. Once activated, the Gro Clock will count down and the star will change into the sun at the time set in each mode. The reason there are two modes is so that parents who are putting their children to sleep during the day and at night can have the two different times stored, which saves them from having to re–set the wake up times every session.
Can I make the alarm sound at any time and in any mode?
Yes! The time you set for the alarm is independent of the night–time or day–time nap modes. Therefore you could have the sun coming up silently at 7am and then the alarm sounding at 7.30am.
How do I know if the alarm will sound?
The alarm bell icon appears in the cheek of the sun/star when the alarm is switched on.
How can I stop my child from playing with buttons and changing the settings?
Very easily, by using the key–lock function, which is similar to the function on mobile phones.
Is there a demo mode so I can show my child how it changes from the sun to Mr Star?
Yes! There is a built–in demo mode which runs through all the sun and Mr Star transitions. To set the Demo mode on, just press and hold the UP button for three seconds and the clock will show all the transitions on a continuous loop. To turn off the Demo mode, simply press and hold the UP button for three seconds.
