Watch our Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball video
We done did it jumbo.
So, when we saw this six-foot-diameter inflatable soccer ball, it was as if Eros himself waddled down from Mt. Olympus and shot us through the heart. We are simply smitten with this oversized soccer ball.
Yes, it is 100% real (and 100% for sale!)
Check out the video below. The Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball is real. It is awesome. And if you are cowboy enough to recognize pure fun when you see it, you can own one too!
Handles a pounding with aplomb
If a gigantic soccer ball says anything, it's "KICK ME!"
If it says anything else, it's "PUNCH ME!", "HEAD ME!", "TOSS ME!", "ROLL ME!", "JUMP ON ME!", and "THROW ME AT STEVEN WHEN HE'S NOT LOOKING!"
The Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball lives for play, so give it what it needs! This sucker's skin is thick (literally) and will handle your abuse. Obviously, you shouldn't roll it over a bed of nails, but in our tests we didn't notice any issues when kicking it across our parking lot and concrete walking paths. This thing gets an A+ for durability!
Inflation valve is so nice, we just had to take a picture
Filling up something as massive as the Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball takes a lot of air. In fact, it requires 195,283 cubic inches!
A large (1.5") plug allows you to employ a variety of air pumps to handle the bulk of the inflation. Once she's near full, you close this plug and use the one-way top-off valve to get her über-plump.
Equivalent to 91 beach balls!
Quick! What's the equation for the volume of a sphere? Yeah, we didn't know either. Turns out, it's (4/3)πr3. Plugging in the numbers for the mammoth 6-foot-diameter reveals that it is 91 times larger (in terms of volume) than a 16-inch diameter beach ball. Dang.
Go big or go home. Well, we decided the house was too dirty and we couldn't afford a housekeeper, so we went with an inflatable so large that its mere sight makes us giggle.
The Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball is kickable, punchable, rollable, and (according to the picture below) Atlas-able!
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Is this thing real or is this some sort of April Fool's Photoshop thing?
Answer: This is 100% real. Frankly, we would never kid about something this spectacular.
Question: How long does it take to inflate? Will I pass out blowing it up?
Answer: You should not try to inflate the Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball with your mouth. You will need an air pump of some kind. We suggest an air mattress pump, a vacuum that can be reversed, or an air compressor with blower attachment. In our tests, it took about 6 minutes to fully inflate. Yeah, she's a big one.
Question: But this is a lot more expensive than a 16" beachball!
Answer: True. It's also a LOT bigger. Let's bust out some more math. The surface area of a 16" beachball is approximately 800 square inches. The surface area of the Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball is approximately 16,000 square inches. Thus, it requires 20 times more material! Plus, this material is far thicker than your average beach or pool ball.
Question: You do realize that the entire world (outside the US) would call this a football?
Answer: Yes, we know, we know. However, we blew our translation budget on our English-to-Bacon converter, so you'll just have to bear with us on this one.
Question: Will it tear, rip, or pop easily?
Answer: No. This ain't no cheap $2 beach ball. This is a well-made product that has withstood fairly savage beatings in our parking lot. In fact, we've had a full-grown man jump on it several times and he just bounced right off (see video above).
That being said, we do urge the following caution: be careful not to overinflate!
Question: Do you have a slightly smaller size?
Answer: We did, but the Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball hunted it down, shot it with a bow and arrow, cooked it, ate its innards, and fashioned a lovely little bolo tie out of its skin. So... that size is out of stock for the moment. You'll simply have to settle for this wonderfully gigantic version and buy, buy, buy!
Sorry! We're sold out until August 15.
More stock arriving on August 15, 2014.
