In my opinion "Abuelastro" is correct but not commonly used. Calling someone abuelo/a comes from a feeling of love and respect in the same token if we really want to show love and respect to that one person who has been there for you as a real grandpa' or grandma' even though there is no blood relation it will be much nicer to have the kids accustom to calling them Abuelito/Abuelita.

I think it is:

El viejo simpático que me da dulces y regalos. (o dinero)

El esposo de la vieja que me da abrazos y besos.LOL LOL

Yo creo que quentin tiene razón, jeje

De todas formas, añadir que la palabra abuelastro es realmente rara.

Sin embargo figura en el RAE:

abuelastro, tra.

(De abuelo y el suf. despect. -astro).

  1. m. y f. Respecto de una persona, padre o madre de su padrastro o de su madrastra.

  2. m. y f. Respecto de una persona, segundo o ulterior marido de su abuela, o segunda o ulterior mujer de su abuelo.

I don't know how common abuelastro is in Spanish (it may be very common for all I know), but "step-grandfather" in English made me pause, as I have never heard it before. Of course, after figuring it out, it's perfectly logical, but I think in natural speech I might say "her stepfather's/stepmother's father" or "her grandfather on her stepfather's/stepmother's side."

But you probably just needed the Spanish word.
