How to build a toy bike out of two lighters

Time: 2014-05-12    Writer: TAJ

  Take away a child's television (or computer, smartphone, games console... you get the idea) and you might just be astounded at how they put their imagination to use.

  This Jamaican boy is a prime example - with a bit of ingenuity he disassembles a pair of cigarette lighters and fits the parts together to create a small motorbike. The toy is known as the “Jamaican Bike” and once completed it actually rolls around like any other toy motorcycle. Sure you need to be good with a lighter, your imagination, and Krazy glue, but overall the instructions seem simple enough to follow.

  He's a born engineer and we're sure he'll be designing cars out of thermos flasks and broken microwaves before long!
