Because I live in a house filled with Lego bricks, and I also happen to have a few prosthetic legs tucked in my closet, this video blew me away. Of all the things my boys have built with Lego bricks, and all the ideas I’ve given them as challenges through the years, it never occurred to me to have them try making mom a new multi-colored leg. I love this young woman’s creativity and just had to share her amazing video with you. What a great example of a geek woman thinking outside the box.
