Default What kind of inflatable is this?
First attempt at inserting an image.
What would you call this and what could you do with it?
If this doesn't work you can call it a broken link.
If is does work, I haven't seen anything like this for sale, maybe someone else has.

Could be some sort of physical therapy/sensory toy (forgive me; I don’t know much about those things).

This is a Cattex 32 (not the long neck version), inflated inside of a $5 stretch cotton pillowcase (jersey cotton) that has had a drawstring that I threaded through the top of it. When the pillow fills up and the cotton starts to really stretch the diameter is about 26". I think the pillow case is 26x20, but it can stretch into a sphere (with enough weight bouncing on it ).

This is soft and bouncy but the pillow case is very tough, too.
My intent is for the balloon to stretch enough for the pillow case to take over, but not to bust. This will hold some very heavy looners, and is big enough for two riders. The pillow case can actually start opening small holes and keep its strength, too. The pillow case is also very smooth, while protecting the balloon from oxidation. If there is an explosion, the pillow case contains it, too. I double stuffed two C32s into this particular one and it lasted over a month.

Let me know if you have any questions about putting this together. Words don't do this justice, it has to be experienced.
