Video: A Boy and His Cardboard Arcade

Spreading the love. Don’t stop in the middle. It is really worth watching the whole thing.

This video, first shown to me by Wendy Smyer Yu, made me feel good about people and the world. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  1. cUte! The news on TV needs to show more stories like this one. It would certainly make me watch. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. I can’t stand TV news because it is all negative. I wish they would realize that we’d watch more if they put on an uplifting story like this. Guess that’s why videos like this go viral. Thanks for commenting.

  2. THIS is AMAZING. Talk about blowing the traditional lemonade stand out of the water. Favorite quote: “I used to like Hot Wheels…when I was little…” So adorable. Thanks for sharing, Sara!

    1. As creative as the kid is, I loved this mostly because of his father. The way he let him just go in his own direction and took him seriously and made him feel like he was doing not just a worthy thing but an amazing thing. Glad you liked it!

    1. Do I detect a hint of sarcasm? Clearly you would not be the appropriate choice for “Happy Times” TV. Except I like the idea about the fuzzy kittens being born. Of course they’d probably label the segment, “Pregnant Cats; Fatherless Kittens.” Wow, I think I’m the cynical one today. I take all that back. 🙂

    1. So glad you brought it to my attention. It really is the kind of stuff that makes me feel optimistic about the world, and I need those reminders. 🙂
