Burger + Fries Musical Instruments

Made by Japanese toy company Kiko+ and gg, this beech wood burger and fries are designed for kids, but we’d be happy to play with our food too. The cheeseburger clacks like a castanet, while the fries make the sounds of maracas. We want one of their telephones for our desk too.

IKEA Furniture Forts

Baby Thunderstruck

Over the course of a year, Matt MacMillan captured sounds his baby son Ryan made, not just so he’d have the memories, but so he could catalog the samples by pitch, and turn them into a cover version of AC/DC’s Thunderstruck, thus immortalizing his tot in the Internet’s meme hall of fame.

Tiny Cybertruck

Tiny Cybertruck

It seems as if the primitive design of Tesla’s Cybertruck makes it fairly easy to replicate, so this one resourceful dad decided to build his kid a Cybertruck body for his electric go kart. Just for fun, he let the kid use it to tow his Mercedes-Benz R-Class MPV. It also does a mean J-turn.

Human Claw Machine

Human Claw Machine

Claw machines look like fun until you realize that they’re all rigged to keep you from getting the good stuff.

ABCD: The Rock Alphabet

Little Inventors is a UK-based non-profit organization that encourages creativity and innovation by asking children to come up with their own inventions, then collaborate with makers to build prototypes of them.
