Bright Worm Balls
Fun Table Items
We used the worm balls in glass jars as centerpieces on cocktail tables for a karaoke/game night. The adults loved them and had a great time playing with them. It was a big hit and the colors were a nice change from standard primary.

I buy these colorful, squishy worm balls by the hundreds to use in teacher trainings! We get into small groups and then toss the balls from person to as participants take turns contributing to a "progressive story" based on photographic images projected on a screen. It is consistently the teachers' favorite activity as they immediately see how their students could tell stories based on the content in the courses they teach. These balls are the perfect size: fun to hold and toss, not too big (or expensive) as to be distracting (or cost prohibitive). I tell all the teachers about orientaltrading.com! Thank you for this great product!

Smaller than Expected
I like how soft these balls are. They are smaller than advertised though. The description says 3 in., but at the most they are 2 1/2 in. I was looking for a larger product so I was disappointed overall.

Wonderful Texture - very tactile!
I purchased these to use in workshops as either treats to leave on the participants' tables or to toss out as a incentives for answering questions or offering input.
These things FEEL wonderful. They are smaller than I expected, but I'm not worried about that at all. They definitely fill up the palm of my hand, and squishing them around is a nice sensation in my hands.
A nice bonus - they are individually wrapped.
I'm sure that these will be a great hit in my workshops.

Colorful and lots of fun
I use these as part of the reward system for my class. I use a bigger version of the ball in class to liven up Q&A sessions and my students love the balls. These are honors chemistry kids so don't be afraid to have fun in your classroom.

We purchased these for my daughter's birthday party to represent sea-urchins, and they were popular with all the party guests. I think they're a bit brighter than the picture shows, but that's not a bad thing. They're good quality, and we have yet to have one fall apart despite the rough play they get from my kids. They also came individually wrapped (though we unwrapped them before the party), which might be nice for some, and had absolutely no odor when unwrapped, which is always a plus. I'd definitely recommend these!

This is an item that we have purchased in the past and will continue to purchase. Participants in our training sessions love this "toy."

Good product for the money
Picked these up for my daughter to share with her classmates. Kids really loved them. Really fun for the right price.

Liked the variety of colors, but would prefer to see them a little larger. Picture on-line and in catalog doesn't give good idea of actual size.
