    Love all of these balls!

    Great way to engage a group when energy levels are down in the late afternoon and early evening. Non-threatening way for high-risk participants to open up about themselves.

    The Icebreaker thumball is an excellent way to start off a new group of trainees. It offers an immediate way to get aquainted with one another, especially for introverts, that eases the stress of being with a group of strangers. Removing this stress makes it easier to focus on the classroom presentation.
