Ideal for pre-school and prep years, the Animals Thumball teaches common animals, colours, spelling, sounds and eye-hand coordination. Identify animals, describe by characteristics and make animal sounds. Variations of play are endless and can be a simple tool for teaching the sounds each animal makes, or as advanced as creating sentences that include the relevant animal and their sounds.

The Early Learner Series of Thumballs encourages development of basic learning skills. Rules such as passing or rolling Thumball kindly, listening to each others answers, correctly identifying the shape, number, colour or animal in front of them can each be socially reinforced 'Great job naming that shape!' etc and/or the player is given a token as a tangible reinforcer. Make associations to books featuring these animals or talk about experiences with animals. Incorporates perfectly into the Old MacDonald song. Increases vocabulary & word associations. Can also be incorporated into fun training room games!
