Aside from being downright ugly and silly looking - why would you make a lamp from a toy that someone might be tempted to play with that includes a burning hot bulb?
A burning hot bulb? Last time I checked, CFL's run pretty cool.
Geez... fun police much? I think this is awesome, and very clever.
Surprised that someone bothered to pour criticism over a pretty fun revamp, and also point at things like the creator already described: "outgrown baby toy" indicates that no one seems tempted to play, and these lights is as someone said never warmer than the Swedish summer of 2012.
First off, I am quite annoyed with such criticism on this site towards people who try to encourage the creative thought process. Criticism as a whole is purely a misconception to these "haters". The feedback box is misunderstood as a means to reply and encourage or give an opinion with a deeper meaning. Not just to discourage or put someones ideas down when you are to lazy to come up with anything else. Second this is a great idea and the last time I checked, a child that would be "interested" in this would have the height to get close to touching it. Not if it was in their play pen or 2 ft off the ground that would be one thing. It is primarily the same concept as a baby mobile (not sure if that is correct) which is hanging above a crib for mainly the baby to have something to look at. I for one think this is a fun and creative idea. The only thing that I would express concern for is the heat on which the cubes or other materials would be exposed to. Considering it is a CFL one should not be to worried about it. It makes great decor for an item in a childs room that is typically not very creative to begin with!
A very clever and original idea! I tip my hat to the reuse of the lamp skeleton. In fact, I tip my hat to the whole concept. Well done!
This lamp is really awesome and creative, it looks really colourful and would look great in a childs room!
Thanks to all of you, i.e. everyone who appreciates the playfulness, color and recycling ;-)
Nice idea, the red and the yellow seems to belong together and really nice that the cord have the same thickness as the steel cable of the babytoy. Very creative
I love this lamp, is my favourite project of this website so far!
