Pediatric Hospitalists everywhere!  What if you could have a communication tool that created instant joy and comfort?  Bonus features include: laughter-inducer, connection-maker, friendship-encourager, endorphin-releaser, immediate energy-shifter, fidgety hands-occupier, & de-stressor. What if this tool also had all of the soothing comfort of a child’s favorite stuffed animal, but was cool enough for all ages?

Connection and comfort are why Mimbleballs exist.


With one simple motion, Mimbleballs surprise people with joy, creating

immediate comfort, connection, and unexpected laughter. They help create

simple shifts in energy which can open the heart and mind to hope, sheer

silliness, and healing connection.


Mimbleballs are round, plush therapy toys with super-soft, kinetic, zany, sculpt-able hair that can stand straight up with a tap or a shake; wear an endless array of ridiculous hairstyles that will stay in place (spikes, mohawk, Dwight from The Office…); and provide the same soothing comfort as petting your favorite pet, without the mess. It is also a ball you can toss, which is fun. 


Mimbleballs are ice-breaking, easily-amusing insta-friends that inspire moments of shared delight when the Mimbleball hair stands straight up, unexpectedly, when "bopped" (tapped on the underside or gently shaken) — a kind and playful gesture intended to bridge connection between people or soothe someone in a moment alone. The resulting laughter and wonder open pathways for comfort, trust, and fun. 


Mimbleballs allow people to be vulnerable and feel valued by being a simple, open, friendly, loving presence (the essential superpower of any stuffed animal), yet the benefits and appeal of Mimbleballs extend to any age and are effective tools during and beyond childhood.


They are highly relatable (everyone looks like a Mimbleball in the morning), with kind, wide-set, listening eyes, soothing softness, and the ability to make people laugh and comfort themselves and others. An ideal talking stick, friend to spend long hours with in a hospital bed or infusion clinic, emotional upset soother, silent patient engager (laughing => talking), smile instigator — imagine the possibilities.

Two brothers in San Diego, aged 4 and 7 — their grandmother gave them each a Mimbleball in Spring of 2021, and they named them after each other. The older brother has to spend every other month or so in an infusion clinic being treated for Leukemia, and so the boys are apart for long periods of time while the older brother is in isolation. They are able to “talk” to each other when they are not able to see each other by talking to the Mimbleball named after each of their brothers. Also makes Zoom time more interactive and fun as the Mimbleballs say hello to each other! 

A woman undergoing chemo received a set of Mimbleballs on an extra tough day — she hadn’t expected to laugh, especially on that day, but she couldn’t help it:

I am currently going through chemotherapy for breast cancer.  I was having a very dark day dealing with the side effects of treatment and feeling really down. A box of Mimbleballs arrived unexpectedly in the mail. When I opened the box I actually laughed out loud at how cute these little guys are!  It shifted my mood for the rest of the day. What a whimsical treat and lift to my spirits. Thank you!!!
