I know what you are thinking and the answer is no, the infectious disease stress balls are not designed to spread all sorts of infections to you or anyone who touches them, neither are they meant to increase your stress levels. In fact, there are meant to do quite the opposite of one of those things and that is to reduce stress.
The infectious disease in the name is just meant to refer to their vibrant colors and the appearance of the stress balls when squeezed, which are reminiscent of swollen clusters of pus filled boils caused by bacterial infections. Not exactly the most calming thing to look at but that’s not the point. It’s the squeezing motion that is supposed to provide the stress relief.
Each ball is made from non toxic, high quality hypoallergenic rubber that is completely BPA free. This extremely durable rubber ball is wrapped in a strong mesh like material and when the ball is squeezed, the rubber presses through the mesh, changing color in the process. The mesh netting is sewn from high quality materials that prevent it from tearing or falling apart after a few squeezes.
The stress balls are ideal for both kids and adults when it comes to relieving stress and calming nerves. In fact, they have been proven to help with children with autism, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety and attention deficit disorder (ADD). For adults, repetitive squeezing motion of the infectious disease stress balls is a healthy outlet and a great way to relieve stress and anxiety from work, relationships and life as a whole. They can also help improve concentration via sensory stimulation.
Each package of the infectious disease stress balls comes with a total of twelve balls, three in each of the different colors (blue, orange, green and yellow). Whether you give them to your kids as a fun, rather disgusting squishy toy, or you keep them for yourself as a stress relief instrument, the stress relief balls are guaranteed to provide some sort of satisfaction for you and your family. Not suitable for children under the ages of four, but probably great for that co-worker who’s always looking stressed out at the office.
