This is Ayla Hutchinson from New Zealand - the young inventor behind the Kindling Cracker™. Ayla was 13 years old when she invented the patented firewood splitter.
Ayla created the invention after her mother injured her finger while using an axe.
It is interesting that it took almost 5,000 years before a girl from New Zealand came up with an alternative to the axe.
Ayla realised she could turn the axe upside down and create a safe firewood splitter. One that everyone can use, both young and old!
Ayla's Kindling Cracker™ is now an award-winning success story!
The New Zealand Postal Service issued a stamp to pay tribute to Ayla and her ingenious invention.
