This product ticks all the 'mindful' boxes for me, it's well presented and is made to the highest quality standards. Because there are three balls this also doubles up as a juggling set!
What a pleasant surprise this purchase turned out to be. As a student medic I often find myself dipped in a pool of stress, and have tried various methods and products in the past to help offload some of this "excess baggage". My tiresome search eventually led to the doorsteps of MindPanda and their stress ball bundle.
Simple put: Wow. From the packaging to the eBooks, everything in the container and beyond is just what I was searching for. I even ordered a second container for my brother who fell in love with the different set of values written on each of the three balls. He was even more excited than I was!
Each ball houses a different set of values, a different scented smell, and colour. The words are so perfect and relatable that it succeeds in easing any tension I may have whenever I glance over them. The aroma also rubs off on hands, leaving a lovely smell for a little while. The items were advertised as soft, medium and hard, but I honestly couldn't tell the difference between them.
These are early days, and I don’t know how durable the words, scent, or the product itself will be. Sooner or later it will have to be washed, meaning it will lose either all or some of its features. But it is safe to assume that there is a premium feel to everything from the get go, and I thank MindPanda for delivering such an exceptional product. Highly recommended!
I bought the stress balls for my 10 year old daughter. She scratches her skin when she gets anxious and this product is to distract her from that. She loves how they smell and the positive words on each one. Her favourite is Gratitude. She likes the different firmness of each one. They look well made.
The packaging is really lovely and we have downloaded the gorgeous mindfulness drawings and have coloured a couple in already. There is also a booklet full if uselful stress management ideas and help.
Great product that has made my daughter very happy. 😁
Purchased these for my husband to strengthen his hand after having a stroke I have since discovered that making a fist is easy but opening the hand is more difficult, this product has since become redundant. The Occupational Therapist told us not to use it Maybe good for stress but not for Physical therapy in Strokes
Purchased for my daughter who has Ehlers Danlos Sydrome and has frequent dislocations / subluxations of the fingers and wrists. She has daily hand exercises from her physiotherapist and her occupational therapist. Since becoming sensitive to theraputty she has started to use stress balls. These are fantastic as they are great for small hands. She loves the smoothness of the fabric and the smell. The vibrant colours make them more aesthetically pleasing too.
I love that these 3 therapy balls(I won't call them stress balls although I suppose you could use them for that) are 3 different densities allowing different exercises to be carried out. Also, my Mum who hasn't got a strong grip can use the lighter of the 3. The lemon scented ball has a light lemon fragrance but I can't really make out the other two scents, they do have a perfume to them but it's difficult to describe. To be fair I didn't get them for their scent, I got them to help with an injury so I'm not worried about that. The words printed are lovely and they seem to be really well made. I've only had them for a short while though and haven't over used them because of my injury. As a comparison, I have a cheap stress squishy and these are nothing like it, they are firmer and allow more pressure.
Fantastic tool. I use them at my desk and in front of a telly. As a creative mind I tend to overthink stuff, constant body and arms tension is inevitable. I was amazed that this tool is helping me to release body's tension if used mindfully. I love the feel and smell of it.
Pros: fabric covered (main reason I chose them) relaxing smell thought out wording on each ball interesting e-book add-on fantastic customer service
Con: as a smell for each of them varies and are mixed while in a tube, I recommend to get them out of the tube and leave for a day or two so they can 'breathe' and smell lovely as they do once separated.
Bought these for my child who has dyspraxia/sensory processing difficulties, to help with anxiety as well as to give sensory feedback and build hand strength. He really liked them from the start and uses one at school. The product is very good quality and seems more robust than other squeezy products I have seen. They have a smooth, fabric-like surface and the aromatherapy smells are quite pleasant, though I'm not sure I can tell the difference between them. Very helpful response to my query too. Thank you very much Envision.
Bought for use on a coaching workshop. All 3 participants commented on them and really liked thin. I noticed they picked them up a lot and it really helped especially during difficult conversations. The messages on them and the smell added something that a regular stress ball wouldn’t and was a conversation starter about various relevant topics to the session. I’ve bought 3 more 🙂
Love this product. I am a qualified psychotherapist and would happily recommend this product. Great for adults. Recently bought this for an elderly relative with anxiety who struggled with the hardness of the ball. So note to production team ... Please consider making a softer one for those with more limited strength. It would make it more available to everyone. Other than that I really rate this product highly. Quality very good. Presentation excellent. Could be cheaper compared to cost of others. but I felt the quality justified the price. Really good gift for anyone suffering with anxiety or depression. The wording on the product well thought out. Overall quality product.
