Gro Anywhere Blind : Review

When Bradley was a baby, he would really struggle to sleep in a light room. He would fight nap time even with the curtains closed as the room was too light and he would wake up super early from light flooding through. I had to stick sheets of black sugar paper [stolen from work, sshh!] up at the windows, as well as a blackout curtain to get him to sleep that little bit longer!

Fortunately Taylor isn't as bad, as he has a blackout roller blind in his room. He did struggle to sleep when we were on holiday during the summer as the curtains were far too thin and the room wasn't dark enough. 

The Gro Anywhere Blind from award-winning nursery brand The Gro Company, is a portable blackout blind perfect for keeping any room cosy and dark for a more comfortable, sleepy environment. Designed to fit any window [up to a maximum size of 130x198cm], this new and improved version has velcro fastenings to help adjust the size to fit smaller windows too.

The blind, which is made with premium blackout material and has a cute moon and stars design, fits quickly and easily to the glass with large suction cups ensuring a close fit, to help block out any light. 

It folds up perfectly to fit into the handy carry bag so it's ideal for travelling away from home, to help make any room cosy and dark.

I will definitely take this on holiday with us to ensure complete darkness. I need a little practice getting it to stick on the glass firmly as it fell down a couple of times when we tried it in Taylor's bedroom. But it was pretty easy to put up and made the room completely dark.

The Gro Anywhere Blind can be purchased from The Gro Store for £29.99.

What do you think?
Would something like this come in use

  5. That is SUCH a useful thing!! I wouldnt have survived parenthood without blackout blinds!
