Welcome back to Gear Daddy on DadLabs.com, I'm your host Daddy Troy. And today we're talking about shoes. Actually piles of shoes. If you have a house full of kids, you're going to have this problem. So what do you do? Well we got a product from IKEA, and we're actually going to install that product today. It helps you get the shoes off the floor and at the same time encourages kids to be part of that process. Let's get going. Okay, I've just gotten back from the IKEA store. And if you’ve never been to an IKEA store, you should really check one out. They’re really cool. This is the product, it’s called an Innvik. It comes in a box, and you actually have to assemble it. It’s one of the ways that IKEA saves you money. Now the assembly is actually not that hard, I'm going to show you how to do it right now, right here in less than 10 seconds. Here we go So there you go, whole thing put together. Piece of cake. And as you can tell, sometimes it’s good to have a little bit of help. We're going to head off to laundry room now where we do the final portion of our install. Hey, babe, can I have that last tool, please? Oh, thanks. Thanks for your help. Give me a kiss. Okay. There comes a point in any IKEA installation in which you realized that your ability to read instructions is about that of a preschooler. I have put two of the plastic pieces in upside down, but luckily, I have my screw driver. Easy to turn back over and continue going. So I'm going to do it right now. You want to go get your shoes? Alright, high five. High ten. There you go, there you have it. That’s the Innvik by IKEA. And like I said, not only does it get the shoes off the floor, but also it gets kids to participate in the process. So we’ll see you next time one Gear Daddy on DadLabs.com.
