A life-size T.rex balloon dinosaur

Watch more with these video collections:

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 balloon 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.
