Doggie high chair? Happy April Fool's Day

IKEA created the "Hundstol" doggy high chair as an April Fool's prank on March 30, 2011 in Sydney, Australia. According to Getty Images. Australian media were duped, with the story running on television, in print and online on April 1, 2011, and consumers placed calls to IKEA inquiring about the product's availability. IKEA went to great lengths to pull off the hoax - creating a prototype and placing in print and online.
