Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Gro-egg color changing digital room thermometer is another clever innovation from the people who brought you grobag baby sleeping bags. Room temperature is vital in creating a safe sleeping environment for your baby and should be maintained at 61-67°F to help reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The Gro-egg glows yellow if the room temperature is within recommended guidelines (61-67°F). If the room temperature is outside this range, the Gro-egg acts as a visual reminder for you to take action to cool or heat the room, or to adjust the baby's bedding or clothing. Every baby's home should have a Gro-egg room thermometer and it is ideal for use with grobag baby sleeping bags to help you to monitor the temperature of the room where your baby is sleeping.

Product Description

Be Concerned! Evidence suggests that room temperature may be associated with the probability of Infant Death Syndrome. The Gro-Egg is a clever way to monitor the temperature of the nursery to assure optimal environmental conditions for your baby's health. It's an important part of your nursery furniture. Isn't your baby's health your number one concern? Gro-Egg is an affordable nursery accessory that you and your baby need.

Health professionals recommend that the room your baby sleeps in should be maintained between 61 and 67 degrees to help reduce risk of Infant Death Syndrome, among other illnesses that may affect your baby. The Grobag egg glows yellow if the room temperature is within the recommended guidelines. If the room temperature is outside the range, the grow egg will glow a different color.

Gro-egg is an ingenious color changing digital room thermometer. There's so much to think about with a new baby, and keeping an eye on room temperature is an important part of safe sleep. The Gro-egg uses color as a great way to show the approximate room temperature. As the temperature rises or falls, the Gro-egg changes color, from blue through yellow to red, as a handy reminder to adjust the environment. If the temperature is outside the recommended guidelines, you'll know at a glance that it's time to adapt the baby's bedding, change their clothing or alter the room temperature. The award-winning design makes the Gro-egg probably the best looking thermometer ever hatched.

Please note, the Gro-egg is designed to glow in darker conditions, so in light rooms please use the digital permanently back-lit LCD screen. A safe sleep guide is also enclosed with every purchase of the Gro-egg.

The egg generally was about 2-3 degrees warmer than what the other two showed.
N. T. McGuire
It's nice to know the temp in the room and with a glance we know quickly if it's too hot, too cold or just right by the color of the egg.
Erin Underhill
I actually really like it - you know if the temp is right by the color of the egg and it makes a nice nightlight too.

This is a nice idea - my wife and I really liked the concept and the styling of the Gro-Egg for our newborn's nursery. The problem is that the egg does not really work as intended. I have found the temperature displayed is consistenly wrong, usually 3 or 4 degress high. Just yesterday I saw the temp the jumping back and forth once per second between 73 and 77 degrees. An independent check of the room temp with another thermometer showed the room was 71 degrees. Since monitoring temperature is really the whole point, and this does not do it accurately or reliably, it is really not worth taking a chance on. We tossed the package but will attempt to return anyway.

My daughter bought this for our grandchild, though she has stopped paying attention to it. As other reviews note, although this makes an attractive addition to a child's room and is visually appealing, it is not particularly accurate, though that is true of many room thermometers. You can confirm this by placing it next to the thermostat for your heating system and seeing that the temperatures differ by several degrees. This also does not respond quickly to changes in room temperature. As a practical matter this means that if the temperature on this unit reads 65 degrees, for example, the actual room temperature could be anywhere from 61 to 69 degrees. However, that may be sufficient for your purposes.

Keep in mind that regardless of what your heating thermostat registers, room temperatures can vary (e.g. one room is draftier than another, so the temperature is cooler in that room). Therefore you cannot test the accuracy of this unit by placing it in a different location from your heating thermostat. Likewise, even if it is warm in your living room, your child's room could be cooler.

There are more accurate room thermometers (see, for example the Chaney AcuRite, which is sold on Amazon and costs less than half of what this product costs), but they will not add to the decor of a child's room, can be difficult to read in the dark (like the Chaney AcuRite), and cannot be read from a distance with a quick glance like you can with this product.

Bottom line: This looks nice and will give you a "ball park" idea of the room temperature, which may be all that you need. For greater accuracy buy something else.

The gro-egg is a gorgeous product and I was very excited about having it tell the temperature. However, it was measuring the house at 77 degrees farenheit when I knew the house was closer to 70 (based on the thermostat and independent temperature measures). I read the manual and it says it has sensitive electronics that taking warming up. After troubleshooting, it still gave an inaccurate measure.

Basically, this functions as a red nightlight that just makes me worry. Waste of $30.

I loved the idea of this thing. Unfortunately I ended up returning three separate ones before getting a different thermometer. They are nowhere near accurate. The first one read 71 degrees in a room that was 85 degrees. The second said 79 no matter what temperature the room actually was. The third also displayed a temperature in the 70s even when in a very cold/very hot room. This thing is a scam.

This is a cool thermometer, looks good, novel ideal. However, I found it was not very sensitive to temp. changes in the room. It depends on where you place the egg. It doesn't always reflect the true room temperature.

this termomether is consistently inaccurate. it overstates the temperature and takes a long time to adjust when there is a change in temperature. before realizing I should not trust it, I kept my baby's room way too cold. I now use it only as a night light. Save your money and don't risk giving your baby pneumonia.

The gro-egg is a fantastic and brilliant temperature gauge to use for your baby room. We have been using one in our daughter's room for the last 3 years and needed to purchase another one for our newborn. We can always determine if our child's room is too warm or too cold (especially during the winter) and if we need to intervene. Well worth the purchase.
