Many people praised the young boy's skill as they said he needs all the support he could get to actualise his dreams.
Below are some of the reactions:
"I did this when I was young, no biggie."
"So no one thought they could invest in this young man and start making nice wooden toys? OmG I need to make alot of money, see mad investment."
"Wooden toys for kids. If we are a serious country, the young lad is a company owner."
"Great talent there bro... I just pray he gets help on time for this and hope that someone will not come and say, no he must be a lawyer."
"How do we help him now? na to just encourage him to do better and hope for a better future."
"Creativity at it best. However the kid needs to be introduced to computer-aided diagrams. That's what is being used for product/design modeling. Most of us were creative like this while growing up but we were never introduced to that Autocad that will change our life."
"When he's through with that work of Art, please let's see the finish product and price."
