In our ongoing quest to find the best-of-the-best GRANDparenting information we recently discovered www.AskGranny.com; a very cool website. Yes, I know, some of us shy away from the name “Granny”, perhaps thinking it’s a bit old fashioned. However, I can assure you this site and the lady behind the site, Juliet Hambros, is anything BUT old fashioned.
Launched in 2010, Juliet wanted to create a unique website for grandparents and those 50+ who also cared deeply about children. She had the idea for the website shortly after she became a grandmother for the first time in 2004. Juliet, previously ran her own fashion businesses, then spent four years researching the different categories for the site before www.askgranny.com was launched.
When searching this website you will find tips on the latest toys, books and gifts for grandparents and their grandchildren, updates on health and well being and top travel ideas, fun, interesting and educational new topics for grandparents and grandchildren to share.
Ask Granny’s comprehensive and honest expertise is available either on her website at www.askgranny.com or via the free newsletter she sends out to subscribers. Each newsletter contains the highlights of the coming few weeks including Ask Granny’s own recommendations.
All information on www.askgranny.com is divided into easy-to-use and accessible categories, such as Toys & Gifts, Indoor & Outdoor Activities, Entertainment, Health & Well Being and Travel. The Over50s and Grandparents can therefore access the information they need with ease and, most importantly, find exactly what is useful for their grandchildren and themselves.
Juliet said, “Grandparents who have retired from working are in a unique position to give their grandchildren quality time and now play crucial roles in educating, spending time (and money) with their youngsters. Ask Granny is about helping those grandparents get the most out of the Internet by doing all the research for them.”
