A 15 y/o Nigerian Boy’s Hydraulic Toys

a 15 y/o Boys Hydraulic Toys in Nigeria from WhiteAfrican on Vimeo.

Odo Gerald is a quiet 15 year old boy who loves to make things. At Maker Faire Africa this year, you’ll find his table surrounded by all the other little boys whenever he flips the battery on. That’s because he’s got the coolest toys around by far, all manner of heavy equipment machines that operate by batter and hydraulics.

Hydraulic excavator and dumptruck, handmade in Nigeria by a 15 year old boy

Toys made: dump truck, back hoe, excavator and a helicopter.

Odo has 4 toys he’s made over the last 4 months. They’re made of painted plywood, syringes, wooden pieces, wire, water and small tubes along with a motorcycle battery to run it all. His next big project is to make a small helicopter that he can get off the ground.

There are a number of kids at this year’s Maker Faire Africa, and it’s a real treat to see what they’re coming up with. More on some of the other projects later.
