Caine’s Arcade…..An inspiring story!!

This little film brought me to tears.

It’s about 11 minutes of your life well spent as you view a young boy’s imagination and ability to play. He has an awesome dad who just allows his son to use objects with no monetary value to create an innovative cardboard arcade!!!

Caine is the kid who will never be bored in life. Caine is the person who will overcome disappointments and will find ways to overcome tricky situations. Caine is a genius as the film-maker states.

Why did this bring me to tears?

Because it is a welcome relief from the consumerism that is blastered at parents that says “children must have this!!” For goodness sake the kid is using cardboard boxes and things that would otherwise be discarded as worth nothing!!!

It is also a wonderful to see this dad  give his son the opportunity to create and not just state it as rubbish.  It also impressed me, how when Caine asked for a claw machine his dad replies “Just make one”.

As a result, Caine uses his brain and makes one!!!!!!

  1. Saw this on a few blogs. He is adorable, bright, enthusiastic, did I say enthusiastic? I loved this video. He just got right into the swing of things at the end. Not missing a beat. 🙂

  2. Saw your link on Michelle’s facebook.. what a lovely blog. And yes, I too was touched by the simplicity of this beautiful boys imaginative play that turned into a good lesson for us all. Would love to kill consumerism! What a shame our children are growing up in such a product driven society.

    • Thank you Rebekah for taking the time to leave a comment 🙂 I thought it was a bit cheeky of me to link it to Michelle’s Facebook, but I really do feel very passionate about what that film represents!!
