I know it's cold. And snowy. But let's not think about that now. Because soon it will summer. No, really. Summer is less than 20 weeks away. And summer in Michigan means hanging out at the beach. And what better way to enjoy a day at the beach than with The Beach Behemoth Giant Inflatable 12-Foot Pole-to-Pole Beach Ball .

Seriously, it's a 12-foot beach ball. Kudos to BoingBoing.net for finding this gem and it's reviews on Amazon. From the reviews we learn that it takes anywhere from one and a half to two hours to inflate this monster. The reviews also include the lines, "Children screamed in terror at the giant inflatable monster that crushed their sand castles" and "a 12ft beach ball can destroy a lot of potato salad, let me tell you!".

And one review included some very important advice, "Do not inflate in your living room."

Sounds like fun for the whole family. See ya at Holland State Park.
