Anyone lucky enough to have spent a summer holiday with their grandparents as a child is familiar with the concept of bedtime stories. Not a mere lullaby, these tales provided a mutually beneficial emotional connection - the one that would last a lifetime. These stories weren’t necessarily fairytale classics - as grandparents would often make up their own tales, filled with their own experiences and wisdom. Even the villains’ role wasn’t the one of fright, but to make children seek safety in their grandparents’ warm embrace. None of today’s gadgets can replicate such an experience. We hope that our Grandpa’s Tales will make you come together in such manner. Remember, gadgets don’t hug back.
