The Grandparents Frame

If you’ve read the ‘about‘ section of this website, then you already know that the country I live in isn’t the country I’m from. If you’re from this part of the world and reading this, chances are you’re in the same boat. We all tend to flock to where the learning opportunity (read: job, money, fun…) is, don’t we?

Do I miss mum and dad? YES! Do they miss me? Hmmm.. they haven’t called me in a few days.. I hope they do! What about you? Do you miss yours?

Let’s take a minute to get the facts straight… you live halfway around the world from your parents. You visit once… twice (?) per year.

What does that mean for your children?

Will they ever get to know their grandparents? How often will grandma and grandpa ever get to see their beloved little angels? Grrr… if only they knew how to use [Skype? Facetime? iChat? Google+? Vsee? Take your pick!] but that’s a bit of a lost cause now isn’t it? Sigh…

Why would you? There just isn’t enough utility gained to justify the insane price tag. The technology does not address any real problem. In essence, the technology was incomplete.

So… what’s changed?

  • You’re able to use a smartphone. You like taking pictures with your smartphone.
  • Grandma and grandpa like looking at your pictures. They do not have a smartphone, nor do they know how to operate one.
  • Apps and wireless network technology are available in abundance. You know how to use apps.

The Johnson’s ® Baby Grandparents Frame combines ready and available technologies to produce something truly remarkable.
