The amazing sleep trainer for young children! 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 Groclock uses fun images of the stars and sun along with the Sleepy Farm story book (included) to communicate when to go back to sleep and when it's time to spring out of bed. For older children there is also a digital display, so they can learn to tell the time, as well as look for the arrival of the sun!

Positives: super smart idea to instill a routine for wake up time. Very clear indication for the kid on when to wake up (big yellow sun/screen is VERY obvious and easy to understand). I bought one for each of my children.
Negatives: clock creeps a bit (time change, so it's faster or slower over an extended period of time. Example: if you timed it with your reliable watch on day1, after a couple of months your watch says 7:15, this one might be at 7:18). This is annoying if you have more than one, and one kid wakes up before the other... Also keep the manual very close nearby, not intuitive to setup. So just changing a simple setup (such as adjusting the time) will require the manual, unless you have an extraordinary memory, which you don't if you have kids who need this to not wake up too early :) .
We loved this clock so much we bought another one for our second son and started using it when he was still only 18 months and in a crib. We would just explain at bed time every night that it's not time to get up until the clock says so, and now 6 months later, we have just transitioned him from his crib to a bed and he has not once gotten out of bed during the night, and he goes to sleep immediately at bedtime. And this is a kid who was a horrible sleeper from day one. I really attribute the ease of his transition to the bed to us introducing this clock early on, long before we planned to move him to a bed. I would buy this clock over and over again. Wish we had done it earlier with our first child.
It did take a few days, but teaching our daughter (2 1/2 years old) that the yellow sun means she can get out of bed really did help with her mornings. Instead of being anxious due to not knowing whether she could get up or not, leading to difficult and very early mornings, she now knows that blue means it is time to sleep and that yellow means she can get up. The colored display, once woken up yellow, will dim and light off after approximately 2 hours, giving plenty of time for the kid to wake up and see the sun.
Note that only the wake up time is automatic. The sleep time must be set manually every night, as you would with a regular alarm clock.
My only real gripe is how expensive the clock is, however it was well worth it once you see the results.
Edit: several segments on the display started failing after less than a year. It's very disappointing, but still very useful.
