UNUSUAL OBJECTS EDITION.

World’s largest piñata.
World's Largest Pinata
The world’s largest piñata was recently constructed in Philadelphia. It was 94 feet long, 24 feet wide, 60 feet high, and was stuffed with 8,000 pounds of candy. They used a wrecking ball to crack it open.

Floating guitar.
Floating Guitar
Water music anyone? Singer-songwriter Josh Pyke’s unusual vessel was designed by Australian guitar manufacturer Maton. The SS Maton is a giant-sized replica of Josh’s actual guitar.

Portable bench.
Portable Bench
This portable bench was designed by Dutch artist Rogier Martens. You can find instructions for making your own here. This idea seems a little more practical than either the piñata or the guitar.
