April Is Stress Awareness Month: What’s Your Favorite Stress Ball?

What are you doing for Stress Awareness Month? Perhaps you’re getting a professional massage, treating yourself to a relaxing bubble bath after work, or taking a vacation. (Lucky you!)

If you work at Quality Logo Products, then stress balls are probably one of your main stress outlets. In honor of this extra-special awareness month, we’d like to share our favorite stress ball shapes with you!

Enjoy!

QLP Employees’ Favorite Stress Relievers:

-

Mandy:

First, the Polar Bear Stress Reliever. Why? Because it’s an adorable polar bear that nobody can resist. Second, the Droplet Stress Ball. With so many colors, you can promote tons of different companies or brands!

———-———-

Kelly:

I don’t necessarily have a favorite, but there is not a lot more fun than a huge Dice Stress Reliever, right? It’s not only a stress reliever but hours of endless entertainment.

-

Doc:

The Patriotic Heart Stress Ball is my favorite — it needs no explanation. How can you not feel patriotic when holding the heart of stars and stripes in your hand?

-

Amy:

I’m a fan of the cutesy stress relievers as much as anyone else here at QLP. However, the two stress relievers I really love are the Robot Stress Reliever and Rocketship Stress Reliever. I love the retro look of them and I’m amazed and fascinated at the amount of detail on them! That’s quality craftsmanship if I ever saw it! If I ever received these I would totally leave them on my desk instead of hiding them in a drawer never to see the light of day.

Bret:

My favorite stress ball, BY FAR, is the Prostate Stress Reliever. Why? Because it’s the most awkward thing to explain to customers. When browsing products they often mistake it for a grapefruit. Especially when it comes to NEW customers, it’s a great ice breaker/conversation to have!

-

Jaimie:

The Lips Stress Reliever — I just think this one is super cute! Also, the Beer Mug Stress Ball, because I love beer.

-

Jenna:

This Bulldog Stress Reliever is my favorite because his sad, droopy face makes me happy. Kind of like when a little kid gets all sad and pouty because they wanted an Ariel plate, not Cinderella, and it is so past their naptime that they are super grouchy for no reason, and you can’t help but laugh. Bulldogs are also my favorite animal, so there’s that, too.

-

Ashley:

I don’t know if this counts, but I like the Toss N’ Splat Amoeba Balls. Who couldn’t love throwing this at a wall and watching it splat? :)

-

Jill:

The Gentleman Groundhog Stress Ball and Bowtie Mouse Stress Ball are ridiculously cute, but the Pink Pig Stress Reliever will always warm my heart like no other. Until there’s a guinea pig stress reliever, of course…only then would I reconsider my favorites.

—–———-

—————————————————-

Rachel:

I think a favorite would be the Ninja Stress Ball. He comes in the traditional round stress ball shape that fits well in my hand, with the added bonus of looking cool and protecting my desk from enemies! (P.S. This one is also Anthony‘s favorite!)

Jen:

Well, you may already know this, but my favorite stress reliever is the Liver Man Figure Stress Toy! He is the coolest blood-filtering stress figure to grace this side of the Mississippi!

-

Serenity:

I like the Sea Turtle Stress Reliever, because it is not only cute, but it catches your attention. It’s very detailed! Also, the Dinosaur Stress Ball — this one needs no explanation. Just look at him — he’s awesome!

-

Leo:

My favorite is the Breast Stress Ball (as is probably every guy here). It puts a smile on my face when I squeeze it, while still making me feel creepy every time I look at it. How that is possible is really the true aura of its odd beauty, and its uncanny ability to be two things in one.

-

Jeff:

The Vibrating Grenade Stress Reliever, because I like things that do….stuff. Not just sitting there, watching and judging. (Like the penguin stress ball. I don’t trust that little shifty bastard…)

-

Alex:

The Flying Pig Stress Reliever, because it gives me a goal to work towards. Someday I WILL find a way to make pigs fly and nobody will be able to use that stupid phrase, “When pigs fly,” ever again.

-

Candice:

Mood Smiley Stress Ball and the Lego Block Stress Ball. I love the Mood Smiley Face Stress Ball because I love anything with a smile on it. I can’t help but smile when I see someone else do it, plus anything that changes colors is pretty cool. The Lego building blocks stress balls are a really cool way to remind me of my childhood and playing with Legos while still being an adult.

Eric:

I like the Eagle Stress Reliever. Making baldness cool since 1776. And freedom, too. If you like America, you’ll love this stress ball.

-

Joe:

I’m a bit of a movie buff, so, as far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t get much better than a Film Reel Stress Ball.

-

What an eclectic combination of stress relievers, right? If you weren’t already familiar with QLP employees’ diverse tastes, then this article should clear it up. Hopefully we’ve given you some good ideas for stress balls!

What’s YOUR favorite stress ball? Will you be doing anything special to reduce stress levels this month?

    Ahhh… the amoeba splat balls. We created a lot of racket around here one day with those. Well worth it too! Those things are the bees knees!

  2. Jen

    Wow! What a great combination of stress relievers.

    I can’t believe Bubba didn’t make the list! Poor Bubba…

  3. Cybernetic SAM

    Wow this is one of the most random list of very different stress balls. I am surprised at the amount of different choices! Clearly if you need any sort of stress ball recommendation, we really are the pros!

  4. Jenna Markowski

    This is quite the eclectic variety! And surprisingly, pretty appropriate. Considering this is QLP, I was expecting a lot more X-rated shapes!

    Let’s not forget about the little spermie: http://www.qualitylogoproducts.com/stress-balls/sperm-squeezie.htm

    We all know he’s fun to throw around the office at unsuspecting targets! :)

  5. Jaimie Smith

    This is an awesome post! All our favorite stressballs say a lot about our personalities lol. I agree with Sam. I def think we have the best recommendations if anyone needed help on a stressball choice. :)

  6. Alex Brodsky

    I feel like you have to be VERY careful where you take the Vibrating Grenade Stress Ball.

    You could easily end up being tackled by Homeland Security and detained at Guantanamo while they make sure you’re not a national threat risk.

  7. Mandy Kilinskis

    I’m glad that out of the thousands of stress balls we have at QLP, none of us had the same one. :)

  8. Rachel

    That movie reel one is pretty sweet! I didn’t know we had that one. The flying pig is also adorable. Great list!

  9. Eric

    The Abe Lincoln stress reliever was up there, too. Anyone ever needs recs on some All-American stress relievers, well, you know where to come!

  10. Bret Bonnet

    Stress balls rule! :)
