The stress ball was invented in the late ‘80s by Alex Carswell, a TV writer in California. He was inspired to make this toy after whipping a magic marker across the room in frustration and breaking a picture of his mom and dog. His "Stressball" was a healthier way to get out tension.
Stress balls actually work in many ways! They have been proven to improve blood pressure, anxiety, arthritis, and concentration. Plus, they build hand strength, create a healthier heart, and improve sleep quality.
Most stress balls are made from a material known as polyurethane. This is a super soft type of plastic that's flexible, cushy, and used in not just stress balls, but also mattresses, building insulation, and shoe soles.
Stress balls are made a lot like homemade cookies. The process involves spraying sheets, baking them in an oven, and setting them out to dry. Of course, eating the final product isn't recommended!
You just need a few balloons, some rice or flour, and scissors to make your own stress ball from scratch. The whole project takes about 5 to 10 minutes and is super simple and fun for any age group!
You can customize a stress ball via screen or ink printing. The front is decorated with a logo, custom design, or some kind of written message. These toys are then handed out as fun giveaways at a variety of events.
Stress balls come in hundreds of unique shapes! You can find not only traditional round ones, but also ones shaped like people, objects, animals, food, and more. There's a stress ball out there for everyone!
