(KGO) -- Christina Stephens, who lost her foot after it was crushed under a car, followed through on a co-worker's joke that she make a prosthetic leg out of Legos, assembling a toy leg using the colorful plastic bricks.
The leg is comfortable though not completely practical. Its range of motion is limited, Stephens told ABC News, and the ankle and foot tend to pop off. She can walk for only short distances on it.
She uploaded a YouTube video showing off her invention. It's already garnered over 500,000 views.
