If there’s one children’s toy that inspires creativity, it’s gotta be Lego. This applies not only for the young but likewise for adults.

In the past, we’ve seen remarkable creations such as that cool black dress created by a husband for his wife, that massive Titanic replica made from 30,000 pieces of Lego, plus many others.

Now we’ve got another story – and an inspiring one, at that – about a teen who utilized Lego blocks to realize his dream of having a new arm.

David Aguilar, 18 years old, was born with a deformed arm. He created a prosthetic limb using Lego bricks.

With the DIY arm, this young man from Andorra can now finally pick up and put down objects.

Ferran, his father has been very supportive of his son and he has even taken it upon himself to share David’s creation with the Danish company.

Lego heard about David’s DIY project and have praised him for it.

In a Facebook post, a Lego spokesperson wrote “Ferran, you have left us without words.”

“The strength, tenacity of David are the things making us proud,” the post continued.

Meanwhile, we learn from a Mirror article that David’s right arm “never developed properly” which meant he only had one hand to use for everything.

Fortunately, his invention changes that. With the false limb – which he can easily operate using his malformed arm – he can pick up, say, a can of deodorant without much trouble.


In a YouTube video, David shared:

“When I move the arm, the hand opens and closes, which allows me to get things.

“With what was a toy I have managed to get my dream done.”

Currently, David is in high school and is highly interested in taking up IT and robotics soon. He dreams of becoming an aeronautical engineer in the future.

The story of this 8-year-old boy from China is something that will tear your heart into pieces. In order to reach his Zhuanshanbao Primary School in the town of Xinjie (Yunna Province) and take an exam, he religiously walked 4.8 kilometers. Even the -9 degrees Celsius cold did not scare him away.

Nicknamed by the Internet as “Ice Boy,” his story quickly went viral online. People began to contact his school, trying to help in any way possible just to improve learning conditions for him and other students. The headmaster of the primary school named Fu Heng was surprised upon seeing the kid.

His head and eyebrows were covered in ice, with his cheeks burning red. He was the one who snapped a picture of the boy and shared it on social media. Afterwards, the school quickly received thousands of donations, some heating equipment, and warm sets of clothes.

If you're a homeless person and you're given more than $200, how will you spend it? If you're someone who is not used to holding that much cash, what's the first thing you will do with it?

YouTube personality Das made this social experiment in which he gave a homeless woman $283. After confirming that she was indeed homeless, he told the woman that the cash was to help her and her son.

Well, $283 is a lot of money, so at first the woman didn't want to take it.
