Mini Neon Smile Face Relaxable Squeeze Balls
I bought these for the teachers and assistants that helped out with VBS. I told them that when they squeeze the ball to release some stress, the ball will have a smile on its face when they release the pressure. A wonderful gift.

I am a stringed instrument teacher. I use these balls as prizes with my elementary students. I tell them to squeeze them to strengthen and shape their hands for playing. They love the idea and attendance is up!

I work as an OT with Special Needs Children in school. My students worked hard to earn a prize. They unwrapped them and began squeezing them. Started getting complaints of a 'Stinky' smell . It didn't take long and the more I squeezed the stronger the 'MUSTY-MOLDY' smell became. There is definetly mold inside these things. Oriential Trading needs to stop selling them ASAP.

Items were larger than I expected (good thing)! I gave these to the adult guests and they loved them. We had a blast playing with them. I told them that relieved our evening stress! :-)

bouncy, squeezy balls
These balls are very bright and colorful. Kids will love them! They are great and perfect size for my kindergarteners hands. They do have a bit of a smell at first since they were bagged and then individually bagged, however I think they will air out; kids wouldn't mind either way, however. They will all want these bright happy balls!

Good Quality, Great Price
I'm an elementary school counselor who bought these to hand out to my students for relieving stress. They were a good price so I can hand them out without worrying about getting them back, and they're just the right size for my elementary school students to use. The kids like the bright colors and the quality is good. Overall, a good product!

Small flyball balls
I think these work great for small dogs in flyball. Though I wish they gave you a choice to only buy yellow ones.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the toxic smell these balls have. I bought them for birthday party favors but ended up not using them since they have an extremely strong chemical smell. The smell was actually making me feel sick. I would not recommend buying this.

I am only 39 y/o, however, I reside in a nursing home. Because of my age I tend to gravitate toward the employees since they are my peer group. With the recession and job insecurity the way it is these days, I wanted to do something nice to brighten everyone's day. I bought a lot of the smiley face products from Oriental Trading and I am going to hang smiley faces throughout the facility. Over the course of about a week the employees will write down everywhere they see a smiley face. Many will be obvious and many will not. There are over 135 in all. At the end of the contest everyone will turn in their lists and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. During the contest, however, I will be hiding "instant winner" prizes. Anyone who comes upon one of these can take their prize right then. For the "Instant Win" prizes, I am making small drawstring bags from seventies retro fabric and smiley face fabric. I am putting these smiley stress balls in some of the bags, among many other items I bought from Oriental Trading. I am excited and hope all goes well. Thank you, Oriental Trading for providing some fun at an affordable price! Hopefully this contest will not only put a smile on peoples' faces but also give them something else to talk about other than each other for a little while ;o)

For the price, you can't beat these squeeze balls.
I am an elementary school counselor and I hand them out to my students to use as "stress balls", for whenever they need to get rid of stress/anger in a safe, acceptable manner.
I like the fact that they are cheap and sold by a 2-dozen unit, which comes in handy when you have a student body of over 500!!!
They do occasionally puncture or tear when they are really used hard, but otherwise a great deal!
