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.

فكرة جميلة وذكية سلحفاة تحمل كرة وتحمل جسمها أيضاً عمل رائع
Nice idea and clever turtle carrying the ball and carrying her body is also a great job

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