Look at this HUGE rubber band ball

Check out the world's largest rubber band ball!

It's leaving the home of its creator so it can be displayed at a museum in Florida, America.

It has taken Joel Waul six years of careful wrapping, linking and stretching rubber bands into the 2.1m tall ball shape.

Ouch that hurt!

The ball weighs in at 181kg! It once rolled over his hand and sprained it - on another occasion it went over his big toe.

The Guinness Book of World Records gave it the title of world's largest rubber band ball in 2008.

"It's the world's largest and the world record is going to be hard to break," Mr Waul said, adding he was glad that it was going to be on display for thousands to appreciate.
