.. where Ikea is driving a new tractor

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

guess what! i tried out driving a tractor, hehe! it’s fun! have u been driving a tractor? i have now. and it is gr8 fun. especially when the tractor is green and has a deer on it!!

of course, i took some fotografs as well. AND i have to tell u that i used a little help. because tractors are not designed for giraffes, it is really hard to push all the pedals at once. like for example turn the wheel and brake at the same time!

but i guess turning the wheel is the most important thing. so, unless you want to stop, u don’t need to press the brakes at all. I did not want to stop, if u ask me!

the second most important thing is to switch gears. of course, if you want to go faster! I did!

but, since you have to *again* press some pedals, then what i did is to put in the fast gear all at once. you can do that with a tractor. it does not work on a car, i’m afraid..

another cool thing about this tractor besides being green and going really really fast is that you can take a friend with you on a ride. i took a picture where this friend needs to sit and how to wear a seatbelt. u need to have the seatbelt, if you want to go really really fast (like i did), hehe!

also, just after i had come back from driving the tractor, my friend Angel (who is good at these technology things) told me that u can also use the tractor with all kinds of machinery and not just for driving really fast! gr8 news! so, maybe i should go and try that now..

until then, let me know what’s your experience with tractors? have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea is mowing lawn on a tractor

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

wohoo! lawn-mowing is great fun u know! because that’s exactly what i was doing last week! and, because of the very very very very nice warm weather (it’s been like 30*C EVERY DAY last two weeks!!!) i have been extremely busy outside. in fact, i barely have time to take fotografs! (or post them.) but here comes:

a bit hard to see from behind the wheel, don’t you think, hehe! but actually not so bad. for example, i saw the puppies very well in advance, look:

and here’s another one!

and here’s one chasing me, hehe! (and yes, they are the same puppies i was visiting the other day with the rain.)

i have to say i have not heard of any other giraffes mowing lawn with a tractor before, have you? but it is very much fun as you can go pretty fast and have to have your eyes opne for puppies. it is good that i have great big eyes, u know.

what about you, have you been mowing with a tractor lately? let me know your fun doings in comments! have fun and cu l8r!

ooh, almost forgot!! ikea4fun is now in Riga, Latvia! that’s just great thing.
