Via Fox News:

Dakota Nafzinger, who was born with bilateral anopthalmia, which left him without eyes, had the cane confiscated after a bus driver claimed he hit another student with one the school had furnished, according to the channel. In its place, the Gracemor Elementary School student was given the bent, green pool noodle because, according to a North Kansas City School District spokeswoman, he fidgets and needs something to hold...

His mother, Rachel, said it is unfair that his punishment involves something that he needs to get around. The report pointed out that he attended his sister's concert with the noodle.

"It's a lot harder with this," the boy told the station. "Can't feel things."

If the project gets enough support maybe LEGO will create it! Click here to see more pictures and give your support.

Update: LEGO's response:

"First and foremost, congratulations to Savath_Bunny for gaining so many supporters for this very well done concept on LEGO Ideas.

We've looked into the possibility of producing a set based on this licensed property (Pokémon). Since the property is owned by a competitor, we've decided it's neither a brand fit nor a strategic fit for the LEGO Group to pursue a license, and so we will not consider Pokémon projects on LEGO Ideas further. We're sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news.

This project is now archived as we know it isn't feasible to produce. Your project will remain visible on LEGO Ideas, but in a status where it can no longer be supported or commented on. This way fans can still admire your creation.

Since LEGO Ideas opens us to new product suggestions, naturally people will suggest concepts that aren't a strategic fit. We are however grateful for the spirit behind projects like yours, and we hope to see more projects from you soon!"
