>> Filipino toy maker Elmer Padilla has a deadline to meet. He's transforming a flip flop into a gift that he hopes to be able to give to President Donald Trump when he visits Manila next week.>>
> I focus on materials that are treated as useless to send a message to the youth that we can still put old things like flip-flops to use, no matter what, as long as they're creative.>> And now he wants to take that creative message directly to President Trump, if he can only find a way.
I also did this to welcome him and I hope Donald Trump enjoys the character that I made for him.>> Padilla's had plenty of practice. He's well known locally for his collection of flip flop super heroes. The Incredible Hulk is a particular favorite and each character is made from recycled or factory rejected flip-flops.
