Kids get so many presents nowadays. Dozens of barbies, stacks of dvd’s and videogames, all kinds of iCrap and other toys they don’t really need.

This dad wanted to give a memory instead of yet another toy. For his daughter’s 5th birthday, he created a 50 meter crazy drinking straw in their holiday home. Starting from their table, going down to the garden.

While she was sleeping on the garden pillows, he started building so he could surprise her when she woke up. Fun memories last so much longer than toys. Apparently tearing the whole thing down was the most fun.
