It covers a vast array of topics of interest to Grandparents, has expert advice, activities, contests, deals and more. If you haven’t seen the site, stop by for a few minutes and check it out. You’ll be happy that you did.

    We use skype to video call with the grandparents! It’s an awesome way to stay connected! Also want to say my fave product of yours is the Jeep® Travel Anywhere® Sport 2-in-1 Booster Seat & Everyday Bag to enter the Life Happens During Naptime contest! Thanks!

    Thank you Kolcraft for a fabulous blog…and turning me on to Grandparents.com. My oldest daughter is expecting and making me a first time grandmother…yikes! I know a lot about being a parents, since I have four children, but I’ll be soooo new to this grand-parenting thing. I guess I’ll have to just remember what I loved so much about my grandparents and what made them so special…and getting some extra hints from Grandparents.com won’t hurt either!

    So happy Tracy over at bookroomreviews.com sent me here to visit you!

    My husband was laid off from his job 7 months ago so we ended up having to move in with my parents. They have such a strong bond with my son. It’s amazing to watch.

    I’m stopping over from Life Happens During Naptime. I’m in love with your Jeep® Overland Limited Jogging Stroller. My husband and I both started the Couch to 5K and this would allow us to run together and take our son! Perfect.

    My kids are lucky in that they grew up less than 10 miles from both sets of gparents. We aren’t going to be so lucky with our grandkids. Thank goodness for webcams and email.
    We’ll visit as much as possible, but with a farm it won’t be nearly enough! :) I am so happy I found the link to this site on bookroomreviews!

    Thanks for being part of our Kolcraft family,

    I am lucky that my parents live only a few miles from me. They are able to be a very active part of my children’s lives. Just today my dad came and spent the afternoon and evening with us, it was great having just him with the kids. Typically about two or three times a month my five year old goes over and spends the night with Grandma and Grandpa where he is spoiled rotten, I know he loves it and my parents truly value that time. BTW Bookroomreviews sent me.

    Trina,
    Thanks for visiting our blog & sharing that with us. How fun to have Grandparent overnights. We are sure your kids will have lots of great memories to hold on to as they look back on their childhood.

    Book Room Reviews told me about this site. I am speaking from the grandparents point of view. I so much enjoy watching my children be parents. Very seldom do I have to bite my tongue! They are patient & loving to their kids, trying to fit in all the crazy schedules kids have nowdays. I love my grand children and enjoy being with them!

    I’d just like to say that I think Kolcraft is the best company ever to recognize and give a place where grandparents can share their thoughts on their experiences and what they are thinking. Grandparents have a heavy responsibility to ensure that our future generations are heading in the right direction. My prayer is that the wisdom of God is shared with our young and that we leave a legacy of love.
