TEACHERS + SCHOOL COUNSELORS

Library Buddy & Homework Helper 

 

Mimbleballs can serve as a great sensory toy for teachers and the classroom. Many fidget tools can be distracting from lessons and school work. Mimbleballs are 100% quiet - perfect for the classroom! They are a great tool for self-regulation to foster focus and concentration. 

 

Have a child who doesn’t like to read? Or a child who does? Have your child bring a Mimbleball with them as a reading buddy! Schools: keep Mimbleballs in your school’s library for when students visit. 

 

Children with reading challenges (or without!) can benefit from reading to an attentive Mimbleball, whose wide-set eyes and absent mouth makes the very best and guaranteed safe-zone listener.​

 

Mimbleballs are also perfect for kids who have difficulty focusing on homework. Keep a Mimbleball on the desk as a buddy to encourage students to keep their attention on their work. Mimbleballs are great companions with whom to take 5-minute breaks from homework as well!

 

Talking Piece for Classroom & Counseling

 

Mimbleballs are a great way to get children of all ages talking, especially during circle time. Have kids throw a Mimbleball to each other - the one who catches it takes a turn talking! Mimbleballs are also highly effective tools as talking pieces during conflict resolution or emotional upsets.

The “Hair Bopping” superpower (smoothing the hair on top and “bopping” the Mimbleball with a tap on the underside to make the hair stand straight up) can also be enacted to give encouragement for kind, generous, or amusing things shared by talking circle members.

 

THERAPISTS + COUNSELORS 

 

A Mimbleball is a calming sensory toy that cultivates soothing comfort, calm, focus, and relaxation. Mimbleballs naturally serve the role of a constant friend and companion, with their kind eyes that seem to listen and exquisitely soft, soothing hair. Therapeutic toys like Mimbleballs can help people cope with life’s difficulties in a safe and natural way. Many people who have taken a Mimbleball home have reported that they and their family members form an immediate bond with their Mimbleball, and often need to order more to share.

 

Calming Friend for Anxiety & ADHD

 

Keep a Mimbleball or two in your office or space for children who just need an opportunity to unwind. Children or students can interact however they like with the Mimbleball, including talking with it, or simply sitting and playing with its hair.

 

Mimbleballs are not just great relaxation tools for adults and ADHD, they are also a soothing friend for kids with anxiety. Mimbleballs are balls with personality which can transcend the label of “stuffed animal” that generally appeals to younger children. 

 

Children can often have a difficult time dealing with the stress and anxiety that strenuous and even mundane situations can throw at them. Fidget toys are often used to help children with anxiety and attention difficulties, such as ADHD. Studies show that they significantly enhance the attitude and attention of children. 

 

Mimbleballs keep fidgeting fingers busy and serve as a beneficial self-regulation tool. A Mimbleball is a tool that helps them cope and self-comfort.

Finding a way to make the often harrowing legal process in the court system less frightening for children is a universal goal, and courtrooms have utilized comfort animals and other methods to ease the difficulty of the experience. Mimbleballs can be a soothing friend for children and young adults during this time.

 

NURSES + ELDERLY CARE

 

Mimbleballs are the perfect hospital companion for a patient who has an upcoming surgery or is undergoing chemotherapy. They are small enough to fit in a bag or a backpack, and can snuggle perfectly into hands. Mimbleballs can help provide calm, comfort, and relaxation during long waiting periods or difficult times at the hospital or doctor’s office. 

 

Hospital trips and stays can be even more overwhelming and stressful for children. Do you have a child who needs to make regular trips to the doctor’s office or hospital? Add a Mimbleball to a care package for hospital stays to lend a sense of comfort, safety, fun, distraction, an insta-activity, and insta-friend for the journey.

 

Senior loved ones have received a lifetime of gifts, but in later years an older person’s needs may change. Whether they are trying to adapt to living in a nursing home or a care facility, suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia, or dealing with the pain of arthritis, Mimbleballs are a great source of comfort, happiness and relief. 

 

For seniors living with Alzheimer's or dementia, a Mimblecall can be a beneficial tool in comfort care. When a senior coping with Alzheimer's or dementia is stressed or anxious, it is often displayed in his or her hands: pulling at their clothes, wringing their hands, and twisting their fingers when they’re upset, afraid or agitated. A Mimbleball can act as a sensory or fidget toy, keeping their hands busy in a positive, soothing and comforting way.

 

Sensory and fidget toys for the elderly can provide great comfort. Mimbleballs combine varying textures, including the very softest long hair, and wide-set, kind eyes that offer immediate companionship. 

 

Mimbleballs are made with the softest fabrics and most durable safety eyes. We are pleased to announce that we will soon be manufacturing a 4 lb Mimbleball for those who can benefit from a weighted sensory toy. This new Mimbleball, Vanessa, will also feature a multicolored sequin face, which will provide a wonderful tactile sensory experience.

Transitioning into a nursing home, elderly care facility or assisted living facility can be very difficult. Giving a gift during this transition (or for any reason!) can help make the experience much more comfortable. 

 

The best gifts give their recipients extra love, comfort, and enjoyment - cue Mimbleballs. Oftentimes in these living situations, space is limited, and receiving items of value can actually make residents feel anxious. A Mimbleball fits right in one’s lap and occupies very little space.

 

Just visiting elderly loved ones can be the best gift of all, but why not leave some love behind in the form of a Mimbleball? In this time of mandatory isolation, when it is often impossible to visit our senior loved ones, send love via a Mimbleball. Our isolated elders can pet a Mimbleball like a Pomeranian, make other assisted living residents laugh with its silly “hair bopping” superpower, and be a loving reminder of those who wish they could be there themselves.
