What’s cooking?

When I saw this play kitchen I could only say “Wow! Lucky baby.” This is from Lisa and it’s hard to believe that this is her first hack. It sure gives all hack newbies hope.

She says, “This is my first hack, first blog attempt and first creative project ever. It was made with the Vika Furusund.”

The shopping list is pretty extensive. The Ikea Furusund forms the frame of the unit. The handles, knife rack and magnetic containers are also from the yellow and blue box.

    What a cool hack for a lucky little kid! Kudos!

  11. My son would LOVE that. He loves kitchen toys, loves cooking with me, and loves pink. (he also loves swords, guns, and teenage mutant ninja turtle – apparently I’m raising a metrosexual, but of course – he’s only 3.)

    Point being – brilliant. Wish I could hack like that!
