I’d like you to meet my friend Ninja the turtle that carries my soccer ball as his shell. When Ninja wonders around, the football starts rolling. I’m having a lot of fun not only by making Ninja but by pulling him behind from room to room, imagine the feeling of a child. I saw the idea few weeks ago and I liked it so much that I decided to make my own with additional 160 mm diameter football instead of a solid small ball. I may add a video soon to show how it works.

Tim, there’s no way for the ball to fall out. Ninja will look after it.

Who says grownups can’t have fun? Great idea – an entertaining way to show off your soccer ball.
