Blade is a spur-thighed tortoise who can’t walk on his own due to a bone metabolism disorder. His heavy shell puts too much strain on his weak legs.

So a German vet name Dr. Carsten Plischke decided to build him a tiny wheelchair made out of his son’s Legos.

He glued the blocks to the bottom of his shell, and with the extra support, he can now glide around much easier while building up strength in his legs.

The video is in German, but the overwhelming cuteness transcends all languages.

For the next iteration how about we upgrade him to a sweet Lego DeLorian?
