More than a building toy: your own chair.


Sometimes you have a good idea, like getting two chairs for you daughters but can’t find the time to put it in place. I’d rather say to put all the parts together. This time, I came up with a better idea, why don’t involve them in the process? And the idea turned great when my daughter thought it would be fun to do it all by herself.

If you think about it, Ikea kids chair can be considered a building toy. In the process, my daughter read the pictograms-based assembly instructions, tried to follow step by step them, looked for all the pieces she needed to build the chair even when some of them looked pretty much alike, found out how the tool works. She assembled two of these chairs and the second time, she even showed the new acquired experience by organizing the parts in a more convenient way for the coming tasks.

The best reward for my daughter was to sit on a chair made by herself.
