** TIPS **

Facilitation Suggestions:

Use the Getting to Know You Thumball to interact in a group setting and stimulate lively discussions among players. Take turns circulating the Thumball by passing, rolling, tossing and catching. Ask recipients to respond to the prompt under their right thumb.

If you want to kick it up a notch, try these creative twists:

  1. Specify that answers should relate specifically to personal or workplace experiences.
  2. Ask first recipient to select an answer panel to which all players must respond or contribute.
  3. Survey players on several question panels, then create charts or graphs that reflect the cumulative responses.
  4. After they hear the answer, have other players guess what the prompt was.

    Thumbs up for THUMBALL!

    Posted by Deon on May 18th 2015

    We used this product in a virtual environment. We ordered a ball for each of our 4 locations; New York, Boston, Minneapolis and Richmond. During a video conference, We literally tossed the ball from Minneapolis to one of the other sites (using a site located person to complete the toss to someone at their office) In only 10 minutes we were able to pass the ball around to 26 participants with each person having enough time to answer and toss to the next teammate.

    The Thumball is a great way to get tweens and teens to open up and feel welcome in a new environment. The girls I have worked with so far love this ball and have a lot of fun with it! Great Product!
