Imagine a set of furniture that your children could tear apart and put back together like a set of Legos.
Such was the inspiration of Jens Otterstedt, who created the brand name Olla – a combination of his children’s names, Ole and Ella.
Otterstedt says the furniture was inspired by Lego. Your kids can take all pieces apart and reconstruct them anyway they like. The possible combinations of furntiure are many – beds, benches, tables, desks and shelves to name a few. Your kids will likely create a few combinations you never thought possible. Lots of bright, pretty colors make the furniture even more appealing to young children.
The Olla furniture is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon with your kids. It encourages creativity, learning and collaboration. It teaches children how to build something all by themselves and rewards their hard work with a beautiful finished project.
To fund the idea, Otterstedt has turned to crowdfunding at Kickstarter.
For a pledge of $228, you can get the OLLA chair, $445 for the OLLA desk and if you want the whole shebang? A $2,255 pledge will get you the OLLA cabin bed room combo.
A bit pricey? Possibly – but as the father of a toddler, I can assure you that this is how to make a little girl very happy.
