So, based on our data and feedback from our customers, we are happy to present the Top 10 Stress Balls for 2012 (and 5 more honorable mentions). Enjoy!

#1

Koosh Ball

Koosh Ball

Koosh is King! Koosh is such a big time, famous stress ball that people use the name "Koosh" to refer to "stress balls" in general. Koosh Balls are multifaceted, which is why they are so popular. You can stretch them, squeeze them, and fidget in a variety of ways. Koosh Ball is our choice as the #1 Stress Ball of all time.

Talking Stress Ball - Relax

Talking Stress Ball - Relax

Talking Stress Balls are a relatively new entry into the Stress Ball market. They are a challenge to make—the sound chip is technically difficult to produce and affix solidly into the ball. Beyond the technical and manufacturing challenges, a talking stress ball must be funny to look at, have a good squeezability (our word, don't look it up) and most of all, have a funny saying. The Relax Talking Stress Ball is the king of all Talking Stress Balls.

#3

Splat Ball - Smile Face

Splat Ball - Smile Face

Splat Balls have been around for a long time. They are thin skinned balls full of water. There is something extra though: when you "splat" them on a table, they appear to explode, but they don't. They slowly pull themselves back into shape. Splat Balls are good squeeze balls and better as a practical joke.

Chinese Health Balls - Rainbow

Chinese Health Balls - Rainbow

Chinese Health Balls go by many different names. The two metal balls with chimes inside that you roll around in your hand. These are the original stress balls since they have been used by the Chinese for centuries.

Happy Smile Face Stress Ball

What's a Top 10 Stress Ball List without the famous Smile Face Stress Ball? This ball is made from polyurethane foam, which offers a firm resistance when squeezed.

#7

Neon Mesh Squishy Ball

Neon Mesh Squishy Ball

When the Neon Mesh Squishy Ball is squeezed, the ball bubbles between the outer mesh net. This ball is very cool because of its morphing qualities.

#8

Stretch & Bounce Ball - Smile Face

Stretch and Bounce Ball - Smile Face

Stretch and Bounce Balls are very cool because they are excellent to squeeze but can also be bounced. Beyond that, you can mold them into shapes.

#9

UFO Ball

UFO Ball

The UFO Ball looks innocent enough, but when you grab it, the ball displays a light show with eerie sounds. It's hard plastic, so it doesn't squish or stretch...but try to stop playing with it!

#10

Fishy Squishy

Fishy Squishy

Fishy Squishy is a technical marvel. It's like having a full fish aquarium inside of a stress ball. You get all the squeezing action of a water stress ball plus the visual interest of a fish tank (no need for fish food).
