His Great-Grandkids Liked Trains, So He Surprised Them With the Coolest Homemade Toy Ever


Seriously, have you ever met a great-grandparent this clever–or this young-at-heart?

Alvin Bogie is 94, but you’d never know it, considering how youthful and fun-loving his totally-cool invention is. He was the owner of an early model tractor, an 1919 I H Titan, and–to the obvious delight of his family–decided to convert the antique into a kiddie train. Check it out!

With colorfully painted cars, a choo-choo horn, and plenty of room for little ones, this toy will clearly be giving these lucky kids memories to last a lifetime.

Admit it: You now feel inspired to make a toy out of something in your garage or attic, right?!
