Bat hacking

This is a cute one from Scirius. He bought a toy bat from Ikea. Only problem was, it couldn’t close its wings.

He says, “I wanted it to close its wings and I also wanted to hang it like I showed in my blog here. It’s kind of stupid but Ikea hacking anyway.”

See instructions here.

    LOL – too funny! I have the same bat, but resorted to a paperclip to keep the wings that way! Will have to try the hack :-)

    I thought the bat was hanging from a magnet until I looked at the tutorial.

    It may be a “stupid” hack, but it sure is a cute one!

    Kind of strange. Since bats prefer the dark, how about painting the wall a darker color? A dark plum would work!
