Thumballs are balls that are specifically designed to stimulate conversation and energize education. To play, you simply throw the ball to someone and then he responds to the prompt on the panel under his thumb. If it lands on the Title or Shnoogie panel the catcher gets to choose a panel. Watch this short video for a demonstration.

For this review, I was sent the 6" Animals thumball to use with Wes. He absolutely loved it. We used it several different ways. First, I had him identify the animals. Then, I had him make the sound of the animal on the panel. I also had him identify the color of the panel. Wes had fun playing with it like a regular ball, as well. Thumballs are really soft and squishy, so they are totally safe to play with in the house.
Thumballs are so versatile. They can be used by parents with their children, siblings, school classrooms, preschools, child care centers, and homeschool groups. Anyone ~ anywhere, really! They are also very easy to clean, so you can play with them outside and inside.
