Stress Balls are our most popular sensory toy and a favourite stress relief toys for children and adults. We have a wide range of stress balls ranging from squishy balls to the original stress ball, we have plain stress balls or character ones that are favoured by children such as our animal stress balls.
Squeezing a stress ball can release tension and help to relieve stress. The benefits of using a stress balls also includes boosting blood circulation and helping with hand co-ordination and exercises. Many also use a stress ball as a tool for meditation.
Children that find transitions difficult may find a stress ball useful as it can help focus and calm the mind, alleviating the anxiety that autistic children and adults or children with adhd may feel/experience otherwise.
A stress ball is also lots of fun and gives great tactile feedback to sensory seekers or can help sensory avoiders or those with tactile defensiveness become accustomed to touch.
