A Samar-born construction worker from the Cavite, Elmer Padilla gained so much respect and admiration from people all over the world. He first trends on social media when a kind passerby saw him and took photos of him while curving on slippers to make superhero toys. He showed such talent to make these cool toys out of slipper rubbers.
We are not the only one who got amazed by his creations. Even actor Mark Ruffalo was flattered that he made a Hulk figure and send it to him. Mark quickly posted it on his Facebook page and thousands of people liked it and shared it.
“Believe it or not, this #Hulk doll is made out of recycled tsinelas (that’s tagalog for flip-flops). @elmerboytsinelas made this for me so I just wanted to give a nice shoutout. Not only is this inventively creative, but it’s sustainable and just pure awesome! Thank you Elmer!”
He even called Elmer Padilla a “genius” for creating toys from recycled materials.

Elmer also made action figure Thor and send it to Chris Hemsworth since the movie “Thor Ragnarok” is coming on cinemas.
Taos pusong pasasalamat ko po kay Ms. @iammarielozano ng Abs-Cbn at hawak na ng aking mga idolo ang isa sa mga gawa kong karakter nila Hulk at Thor mula sa tsinelas. Sobrang nakakataba po ng puso. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa aking Manager na si Sir Jerry Santos @jerrystatues na gumagawa naman ng life-sized statues sa pagtulong at pagalalay sa akin. #marvel #avengers #hulk #thor #abscbn #jerrystatues #markruffalo #chrishemsworth #elmerboytsinelas #boyviral #flipflops
