The Gro Company Grofriends

Like all products from the Gro Company, the Grofriends have been expertly designed and are guaranteed to make bedtime a whole lot easier. Ollie the Owl, Percy the Penguin, Bennie the Bear and Henry the Hedgehog are unique and utterly adorable sleep aids with built in CrySensor technology, helping baby (and Mum and Dad!) to get quality ZZZ’s every night. The latest must have baby sleep essential, the Grofriends range will grow up with little ones and become their trusty sleeping companion, whether on the move, at home or staying with their grandparents. They are completely portable so you can take him on all your adventures. A secure hanging loop enables you to hang him on the side of the cot, pushchair or car seat, so he won’t get lost!


Intelligent CrySensor Technology

Our Grofriends promise to always be there for your little one! Their built in CrySensor is an innovative development which allows them to listen out for noises made by baby. When the CrySensor is activated, the Grofriends will automatically start playing their soothing sounds and help settle your child back to sleep.

Ollie the Owl and Percy the Penguin can hear all noises within a room but are specifically programmed to react to crying or sharp sounds which may disturb your child. The CrySensor means Mum or Dad doesn't have to get up to turn your Grofriend on to resettle your child or head into baby's room and disturbing them further when you have to sneak in and open the door!

Get more ZZZZ's

The Grofriends have a gentle warm glowing tummy with 3 sensory light levels to help create a lovely calming environment for your baby to drift off to sleep in. If baby should wake up in the night your Grofriend can help them self soothe and resettle.

Ollie, Percy, Bennie and Henry will play either White Noise or Lullaby for 20 minutes after the CrySensor is activated and then will switch to standby mode for three hours, but rest assured they are listening intently and will turn on at any point during standby mode if he hears baby stir to play either: white noise static or Brahms lullaby.

The Grofriends have been designed to make bedtime a whole lot easier and both the sound and light features have been designed so you can set the sleep aid to what suits you and your baby.

Ollie is probably the best purchase I have bought!

I tried him out the minute he arrived. My little girl instantly started to snooze! It is very lightweight. I played him again at nighttime and she was asleep in a matter of minutes.

Ollie the owl is a great looking product!

Ollie the owl is a great looking product, made from lovely soft materials. He looks lovely at the end of my little boy's bed. We have used both the lullaby and white noise CrySensor functions, and although they don't fully settle him, they definitely do help, so fingers crossed he keeps helping and we get some sleep soon!
