Mini Porcupine Balls
Great Teaching Tool - Highly Recommended!!
As odd as it may seem, I use these little koosh balls for teaching and for reinforcement during youth AND adult workshops.
I do many different workshops around the brain science of addiction. These little koosh balls become my neurotransmitters (dopamine) as I have the participants become the various parts of the human brain.
I also use them as a "hug" when I need to give the workshop participants a boost. It is much easier to use the koosh ball as a warm fuzzy or as a hug than it is to do for real. The koosh balls make people smile! You NEVER know what reaction an actual hug will bring.
Anyway, these are excellent. Adults love them. Kids enjoy getting to pick out their own color to take home with them after the activities.

They seem really nice
I got these for my bus kids. I give out surprise packs several times a year. These are going to be a welcome item the next time I make them up. The colors are nice and bright, and they seem pretty flexible. I think they will be a hit.

Fine motor skills saver
I use these little balls to help my students that struggle with fine motor skills and gripping a pencil. They hold it with their ring and pinky finger while holding the pencil! It works wonders and builds their confidence!

not so soft
I purchased these to use in a magic trick (cups and balls) but they were not soft enough to collapse between the cups. We altered the cups to allow more room, but it was not what we were hoping for.

I bought these for my sugar gliders to play with and they like them. They are easy for them to hold and carry around...even throw!

I am never disappointed with my purchases from Oriental Trading. I am supplying prizes for games for an allergy walk, and every product I have ordered is perfect. I know the kids will love them.

These are great sensory items small enough to roll in the palm or keep in a pocket. It's just soft or hard enough for when kids need a little pressure on the skin.
