Warning: Father’s Day is June 17. That’s coming up fast, folks. And this year, we’re honoring the dads, grandpas, uncles, friends, and mentors who taught us how to fix. In addition to providing much-needed support and guidance during our formative years, these relationships often serve as our first introduction to repair and tinkering.
Here at iFixit, we’ve got a whole pack of new dads and parents. So we rounded them all up to ask them about their favorite iFixit toolkits, and if they’ve recently repaired anything with (or for) their kids. Turns out, the fixer gene has not been spared with iFixit’s youngest generation. We were impressed by the sheer variety of things that dads have fixed for their kids—as well as the repair savvy their little ones possess in their own right.
