  1. 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."

  4. Love these Thumball range of products

    Posted by Tarra Hanson (Vic) on 11th Jul 2013

    We purchased a whole bunch of these Thumball products for our school and they have been very well received by both the students as well as the staff. The concept is so simple and yet so effective. I must say, that we were also very impressed with your fast customer service as well as your packing and shipping department - it must have taken ages to literally 'build' that packing box they all came delivered in, many thanks! EXCELLENT PRODUCTS
