Tommee Tippee Groegg2 Digital Room Thermometer Review

Tommee Tippee Groegg2 Review: Togs, sleeping bags, blankets, air con, no-air con – it’s all a bit overwhelming isn’t it? I remember when our first was born and right up into toddler years, being really confused how to dress bub at night and the correct temperature the room was meant to be at for a comfortable night’s sleep. 

We got really frustrated and found the best, and easiest to use solution was the Tommee Tippee Groegg. It solved all of those dilemmas for us and was just one less thing to worry about. They’ve since updated the product and have released the innovative Groegg 2, which we will be reviewing here.

Tommee Tippee Groegg2 Overview

The Tommee Tippe Groegg is a digital thermometer designed to help you give your little one the best chance of a good night’s sleep. It is as simple as plugging it in & waiting a few seconds until the egg picks up the temperature of the room.

The innovative colour display will let you know if the room is too warm, too cold, or within the correct temperature range (yellow glow) at a quick glance. Let’s dig a bit deeper into the main features now: 

Handy Temperature Display

Once plugged in, The Tommee Tippee Groegg takes a few short seconds to display the correct temperature of your child’s room. Its an easy digital temperature display that is about a million times easier than playing the old guessing game.

From there it’s a quick decision on how to dress your little one for bed (ah, those pesky TOG ratings) based on the temperature of the room – which you can easily tell from the display or the different colours.  

Gentle Night Light

The Groegg 2 comes with an updated and improved night light feature with a brighter design than the original gro egg. This feature we didn’t use so much with the babies, however once they hit toddlerhood and discovered a fear of the dark, it became super handy.

The soft silicone design (an update from the original groegg’s hard plastic egg) uses innovative colour changing to let you know at a glance if your little ones room is too cold (blue), too warm (red) or just right (orange). With the new product update from the Gro Company, you can also adjust the brightness levels to suit your child. 

Tommee Tippee Groegg Pros

tommee tippee groegg review
  • It comes with a small temperature chart explaining the tog ratings of grobags & which to use when – this alone was worth buying the Groegg for us! 
  • Easy digital temperature display to ensure a comfortable temperature for your little love
  • Part of a safer sleep routine
  • Adjustable brightness levels to suit your child
  • Peace of mind knowing you’re dressing your little one in the right baby’s clothing at bedtime
  • Simple USB cord plug and go design
  • Soft touch silicone dome for little hands
  • The GroCompany & Tommee Tippee are safe sleep experts, so your family are in the right hands

Tommee Tippee Groegg Cons

  • Needs a power supply, can’t run on just batteries. This was only a problem for us during power outages – but you find after using the Groegg for a while you get a super accurate feel for room temperatures anyway (you’re a wizard Harry!)
  • Not waterproof, like some of the other models which you can also use as a bath thermometer. The benefits of the Groegg far outweigh this small negative, but if it is important to you that your room thermometer is also a bath thermometer, try the brand’s other model – the Tommee Tippee Bath & Room Thermometer

Our Overall Opinion Of The Groegg

groegg review

For our family, and many others I know, the Tommee Tippee Groegg & Groegg2 have been lifesavers and promote a safe sleeping environment. When your brain is all hazy from parenting life, the Groegg makes room temperature and pesky TOG ratings something that you don’t have to think about at all.

The different light levels are great for a nursery thermometer right through to a toddler bedroom. Our favourite feature has got to be the fact that the colours of the groegg coordinate to show if the temperature is right or not – with the quickest glance to know the temp of the room. Epic!

Tommee Tippee Groegg2 Alternatives

If you’re flat out of luck and the Groegg is sold out, or you just want to see the other alternatives that are out there, here are our favourites:

Tommee Tippee Bath & Room Thermometer

Tommee Tippee’s budget room thermometer also doubles as a bath thermometer. This model is handy and the price is right if you are on a tighter budget, however it doesn’t have the additional features (nightlight etc). 

Dreambaby Room & Bath Thermometer

This is a really similar option to the above, however some parents are truly loyal to the Dreambaby brand – bub has been using their bottles since birth etc. Again, it’s a great product if you aren’t after the additional features of the Groegg.
