A children's charity in Palmira, Colombia, is bringing new meaning to the term "all dolled up."

The Foundation for a Better World has just finished building the world's largest rag doll, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Colombia's National Day of Childhood, an event instituted in Palmira in 2004.

The doll, named "Nana," measures 21 feet, 4 inches, which is more than two times larger than the world's tallest man.

To build the doll, volunteers created a skeleton using thick-cut bamboo, and used a concrete foundation, in addition to tensioned steel to keep it all together.

It also beats the previous world rag doll record of 15 feet, 2 inches, set in Genoa, Italy in 2005, according to Guinness World Records.
