Little Techie – a five-year-old who makes cool stuff and blogs

Meet London, a five-year-old who probably has a better handle on modern technology than any adult I know.

Summer Allen (who describes herself as a baker, illustrator and mum) has a superb design blog, Design is Mine. She also has a five-year-old son, London, whose number one obsession is technology and the gadgets that go along with it.

We all know that when five-year-olds get into something, their obsession knows no bounds. Is this particularly a boy thing? I’m not sure, but I do know that my sons have vast collections of outer space, elephant and shark stuff – all collected when they were between four and six years old.

London has his own blog, Little Techie, to showcase his brilliant creations. You have to admire London’s attention to detail from the fifth generation iPod made from Lego (above) to an iPhone 4, also made from Lego (below -note, it’s switched off!).

While Lego is clearly a favourite medium, London also works in paper, cardboard and felt-tip pen – and I suspect he is Apple’s biggest fan!

Katrina studied planning and design, did the hard yards working in a big office building and then traded it all in for a relaxing (!) life at home with four children. She now fills her time with writing, completing a degree in genetics and taxiing her children around Melbourne to their various sporting commitments (not necessarily in that order).
