The Kid Should See This

A life-size T.rex dinosaur made of balloons

This life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur is made from 1,400 balloons. Created by award-winning pro balloon ‘sculptor’ Mark Verge, it’s a recreation of his first place dinosaur at the 2007 World Balloon Championship, what he calls The Coolest Thing I’ve Ever Made, episode 9 of a series by the same name.

Next: An Acrocanthosaurus dinosaur sculpture made of balloons and The gigantic dinosaur puppets of Walking With Dinosaurs.

Bonus: Water balloons bouncing in slowmo and how balloons are made.
