This is a great little clock for kids are learning to stay in bed.  How do they know they must stay in bed or that it is time to get up?  It features a colorful face that has stars at night and a bright sun during the day.  The face at night glows blue, and the little stars that go around the face, disappear as time goes on throughout the night.  Sort of like a countdown to wake-up time.  When it is time to get up, the face changes to a bright yellow sun!  Tell your kids to ‘stay in bed until you see the sun’.  You have the option of also setting an alarm to go off.  For the older kids, who are learning to tell time, you can also display the time digitally during the countdown to wake-up.

You might be asking ‘What if I want my child to stay in bed longer on the weekends?’  (Don’t we all?) The Gro-clock  sleep trainer comes with 2 settings, weekend and weekday.  An added bonus is it acts as sort of a night light for your little ones.  Although you can adjust the glow brightness.

  1. I have one of these, it did not work out. My son would play with the buttons, and unplug it. There was no where in his room to put it up high out of his reach (because he is also a climber), so we eventually just gave up on it.

    If your child is a manic button pusher like mine, this may not be for you.

  2. We could use this for weekends when my daughter wants to get up extra early! I don’t have a problem with her during the week but when it comes to the weekend, she wants to get up at the crack of dawn when mom and dad just want to sleep in! lol

  3. We have a clock kind of like this for my six year old, but I have to admit I haven’t enforced the times in the morning when the light changes and he’s allowed to get up. I really need to work on that with the kiddos.

  4. I wish I had a Gro-clock sleep trainer when we were trying to get Abby to learn to go to sleep in her own room. I’m happy to know about them now though because my daughter is trying to conceive. They would make a great gift idea.

  5. I am pretty sure it is against my kiddos religion to sleep when the sun is up! This clock would be a great way to teach him what time he is allowed to get up.
