Grandparents and grandchildren needs some quality time together.

Today the day many grandchildren hardly spend time with their grandparents anymore. We wanted to make a product that can change this fact. To do this we combined two items of both generations: the storybook and the tablet.

In almost each householding you can find at least one tablet. Children loves to play with it and some children don't want to do anything else. So why wouldn't we make a game that you can only play when you are at your grandparents? The grandmother or grandfather picks one of our selfmade storybooks and starts telling the story to his/her grandchild. While the grandchild is listening he or she can scan the current page with the tablet and play a little game based on the story on that page. It is some guaranteed quality time for both the grandparent as for the grandchild!
