WATCH: Creative dad transforms 4-year-old son’s playtime adventures into action movies
With a little help from technology, one dad is giving a whole new meaning to encouraging your kid’s imagination
As kids, it’s easy to be carefree with our vivid imagination unbridled by the cynicism of adulthood: Our living room carpet transforms into boiling lava; our bed becomes a sailboat flying off to neverland.
Artist Daniel Hashimoto wants to preserve this point in his son’s life by videotaping his playtime adventures and taking it to the next level with a bit of computer effects magic.
The creative dad, who is the brains behind the Action Movie Kid channel on YouTube, creates exciting mini-action flicks which prove he's just as imaginative as his little boy!
In one video, his son navigates through a storm as his playground boat transforms into an actual one!
In another, we see the little adventurer swinging across monkey bars as crocodiles threaten to chomp on his swinging feet.

In a mini-film called ‘Flying Boots’ his son dons an Iron Man mask as he zooms out of their kitchen in Marvel-level coolness.
More than entertaining, Hashimoto also wants to encourage other parents to make playtime fun and imaginative (for parents and kids, alike) by providing how-to videos for using special effects on their own home movies.
