Product Description


thumballs-logom-.gifDebriefing - Thumball (6")
The Debriefing Thumball is useful to help facilitators ask debriefing questions in a proper sequence that makes sense to participants. This product is a truly unique tool to help teams and individuals 'debrief' an experience. There are 32 different processing questions pre-printed on the panels of the ball.

It can also shift some of the responsibility for successful processing from the facilitator to the participants. The sequence of 1. What happened, 2. Why is this important, and 3. How can I use this information, not only takes participants through a progression for processing a specific event, but also presents an overall lesson on proper processing.

The Debriefing Thumball offers excitement and variety to straight question-and-answer sessions or traditional processing.

Orange Fact-Finding Questions: These questions will ask general questions about what happened in the group. It asks factual questions or questions that simply summarize the events of the experience. The questions intentionally are easy to answer and set the stage for the other two colors of questions.

Green 'Why-Is-This-Important?' Questions: The green questions ask Why questions and elicit feelings from the participants. They also help participants analyze the significance of the experience.

Blue Transference Questions: The blue coloured questions tie the specific experience to future experiences and to everyday life-after learning from an experience, how can participants apply this knowledge?

Instructions: Answer 3-6 questions per color. Orange first. Green second. Blue third. Throw it. Catch it. Look under your thumb. Answer it.

Thumballs develop essential communication skills for long life learning and social development.

    Great products, great price, quick & FREE shipping! Good customer service. There's not much more to love about these Thumball products.

  2. Absolutely love the Thumball range from Outdoor Gear Australia

    Posted by Audra M. (QLD) on 12th Jul 2014

    "I have absolutely loved the Thumball's from Outdoor Gear Australia! They are incredible tools, especially for working with young people or groups that are difficult to engage. They are great for icebreakers and promote self-reflection, storytelling, and creative thinking. The tactile nature of Thumball's is great for some of the young people my colleagues work with who are nervous to participate in group discussion as it gives them something to feel and look at as they speak. Staff and clients have loved the Thumball's so much that we have to keep ordering more as the word spreads because everyone wants them now! I highly recommend this resource."

  3. Widest Range of Thumballs in Australia

    “ was a totally simple and positive on-line shopping experience that I personally both enjoyed and appreciated. The very quick and timely e-mail feedback was exceptional – all my questions were answered. We plan to use Outdoor Gear Australia again for all our on-line orders. The free shipping is exceptional & much appreciated, as this is what clinched the deal with my Manager. Thank you for the exceptional products and superior customer service!"
