The Boy Who Makes


This is a beautiful and precious story about a 9-year old boy with the ingenuity to build his own arcade using cardboard. What I love most about this is, not only that the Dad is super cool with letting his son make things and put it on his store, he seems rather proud of his son’s inventions! And who wouldn’t be? How I wish I live nearby ‘cos I would really like to meet with this inspirational little man and obviously have a go at his handmade arcade 🙂

The video is about 11 minutes long, but, I promise you, it’ll be worth watching. It definitely brought happy tears to my eyes. I hope that this video would increase your sensitivity towards children’s creativity; and if you notice one budding, do give it all the love and support it needs to grow. You will never know where their passion will take them. Robert Manning, a rocket scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of California Institute of Technology, once built cardboard rockets when he was Caine’s age. Now, he’s out there making real ones.
