How do you get your children to understand when it's time to get up? SIMPLE 'stay in bed until you see the sun!' This updated version of the 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, this 2010 version 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 beautifully illustrated book which helps 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!'. It is this combination of the simple glowing images and the bedtime story book which has already made the Gro-Clock a phenomenal success.
Anyone who has been woken up at 5am with their kids thinking it's morning will appreciate how the Gro-Clock could help. For children who are too young to read an ordinary clock, the Gro-Clock has a glowing screen showing images of stars and sun to communicate the differnce between sleep and wake-up time. The small stars go out one-by-one during the night to show the passing of time. The changing images encourage children to stay in bed longer as they learn to 'stay in bed until they see the sun'. Silent operation enables the child to continue sleeping as the display changes, and adjustable screen brightness allows you to choose the best amount of light, making it the perfect nightlight. There is an optional digital clock and audible alarm feature, so you can use it as a normal clock as your child grows up. This updated model has a new educational 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. Mains powered (adapter included). The Gro-Clock comes with a 'Sleepy Farm story book, beautifully illustrated by leading childrens artist Mike Terry. Sleepy Farm tells the tale of a very tired pig, to help reinforce the message of the importance of a good night's sleep. Suitable from age 2 years upwards.

If the power is turned off, does the clock remember the correct time?
When the power goes off, the 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 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 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.
My screen has frozen and is not responding to the controls.
Switch the clock off at the mains, wait a few seconds and switch back on.
