This is Ayla Hutchinson from New Zealand. She is the young inventor behind Kindling Cracker. Ayla was only 13 years old when she invented the firewood splitter which makes it safe and super easy to split kindling and firewood.
She got the idea after her mother chopped her finger badly while she split firewood with an ax and Ayla was determined to find a safer alternative.
It is interesting that it has taken almost 5000 years before a young girl from New Zealand realises that you can turn the ax upside down and create a safe firewood splitter that everyone can use, both young and old.
Kindling Cracker is now an award-winning success story and even the New Zealand Post has issued a stamp to pay tribute to Ayla and her ingenious invention.
