Aubrey Clayton made “BAB, The Ikea Baby” [PDF] for an expecting friend, which shows how to assemble a flat-pack baby with IKEAesque instructions. [via MeFi Projects]
And as far as I can tell, all the translations on page 2 are real. Good work!
Aubrey Clayton can expect to hear from IKEA’s legal department. I hear they are very touchy when it comes to their instruction manuals or anything that looks like one.
Look, the IKEA product names are not made up random strings: They are actual Swedish (sometimes Norwegian or Danish) words and places.
So BAB is right out. May I suggest “BÃ¤bis” (which means “baby”) instead?
@#4, even the Ikea Legal department can’t change international copyright law, which explicitly allows for persiflage.
Great Work, Aubrey Clayton!
How is babby formed?
What delivery methods does Ikea offer? Stork?
My baby is missing a critical part.
Here’s a must see IKEA based instruction.
