We used as ice breaker for a group of college students.
Used the thumbball during a team meeting for some fun and laughs...works well.
IT'S A GREAT TOOL FOR GETTING PEOPLE TO TALK ABOUT THEMSELVES. IT ALSO LIGHTENS THE ROOM TENSIONS.
It was unexpected so the students were very vocal and had fun.
all the staff had a good time using the balls. it was different and useful. can be used over and over again
This is something new for the company and I believe it will be great.
I was introduced to the Thumball at a meeting I attended and immediately saw the potential for use as an icebreaker and with team building activities so have purchased several different thumballs for use in my facility.
