    BTW, a college scholarship fund was opened for him after the guy who made the video found him and saw his arcade. Thanks to the publicity, it is now up to $117,000.00!!!!!!

    This is so freaking awesome exactly what kids should be doing!

    I made my 3year old a train she'd out of a cardboard box the other day and he's been playing with it constantly since.only took about 15-20minutes to make as well plus I had fun making it,always love art and craft stuff.

    Way to go Caine!!!!

    Make sure to watch to very end of the video as Caine speaks during the rolling of the credits. So cute!
