    Largest Wobble Board Ensemble

[Nov 17]TAYLORSVILLE,UT,USA--487 students, teachers and adults at Eisenhower Junior High Schoo in Taylorsville, Utah, reportedly broke the Guinness World Record for Largest Wobble Board Ensemble. Participants played their wobble boards by propping them between the palms of their hands and bouncing them back to the song of Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport.

   Students at Eisenhower Junior High School have been tackling world records for 20 years, and getting 487 people to wiggle the red, white and black Masonite boards for more than five minutes straight took more than a year to accomplish, said Tom Sharpe, science teacher and world-record organizer at the school. They're already in the Guinness Book of World Records seven other times.

   The previous world record for the World's Largest Musical Instrument Ensemble (for Unconventional Instruments) was held by 359 employees of AIRMILES of Bolton, Lancashire, United Kingdom, who successfully played their Wobble Boards for five minutes to the song of Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport, on July 12, 2007.

   Wobble Boards are made of 2-foot by 3-foot hardboards--such as Masonite boards--that are played by "propping them between the palms of the hands and bouncing them back and forth".

   The first Wobble Boards were created by Rolf Harris in 1957. In 1960, Harris included the wobble sound in his international hit song Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport.
