AT-AT walker delights 4-year-old

AT-AT walker

Illustrator Ben Dewey pitched in to customize an AT-AT walker for Stephanie Kaloi’s 4-year-old son, who associated the tool with pain. It was a success:

More importantly, the goal was accomplished: our son happily walked all around our living room firing lasers at us for nearly an hour without once being scared that the walker would cause him pain. He’ll need the walker for another three weeks, and having him happy to use it is a huge leap forward for his recovery.
