10 Promotional Stress Balls For Promoting Health Awareness Campaigns

It may not come as a surprise to you that one of the most popular uses of promotional stress balls is to promote healthy living. With so many heath themed stress shapes available, this makes sense. Stress toys come in over a thousand different shapes and there are plenty of health themed shapes. There are anatomical shapes, food shapes and sports shapes just to name a few. Here I would like to introduce the ten most popular shapes for getting healthy living messages out and literally into your target audience's hands.

The Fat Belly: This shape has been around for a while and it is one of my personal favourites. Manufactured in the UK, this top quality slow release fat belly shaped ball is ideal for promoting healthy eating and the affects that over eating, over drinking and not getting enough exercise can have on your body. Print the fat belly with your logo and message for a truly memorable and eye catching promotion.

Cigarette Pack: The cigarette pack is the same size as a normal pack of cigarettes and it can be printed up to full colour with your logo, message and/or details. One customer recently printed a picture of a diseased lung on the front similar to the warnings that are now being displayed on cigarette packs. It was a very successful anti-smoking message and these stress balls helped give people trying to stop smoking a stress relieving product to use instead of lighting up.

Apple Stress Shapes: There are many different fruit shapes such as apples, oranges, bananas and strawberries. Apples are the most popular. We all know the saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away," and these shapes get the message across in a fun low cost way. These fun shapes are very popular in schools to promote healthy eating.

Broccoli Shapes: Does your target audience eat enough greens? Of the many different vegetable shapes, broccoli stress toys are the most popular.

Liver Stress Toys: There are several different liver shapes to choose from. One of the best is manufactured in the UK. One side of the liver is smooth and healthy looking while the other looks very sick. These are perfect for helping people to understand the affect that too much drinking can have on their livers.

Prostate: More men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate cancer than any other cancer with the majority of men being diagnosed over the age of 50. A recent campaign used prostate shaped stress relievers to get men in this age group to see their doctors and have a simple blood test done to see if they had the deadly disease. The campaign sought to tell men that they may not have any symptoms and that early detection through a simple blood test could save their lives.

Breast Shapes: There are a number of breast shapes available. These have been used very successfully in breast cancer awareness campaigns.

Football Stressball: There are many sports shapes available. It is difficult to know how many are used to promote healthy living but the football (soccer ball) is the biggest selling shape. If you are trying to get people to exercise more, you should look into the many shorts shapes available to you.

The Hamburger Shape: Hamburgers are loved worldwide but they are also not usually the healthiest of meals especially when you add the fries and soft drink. Print your healthy eating message on the upper bun. Fries and soft drink shaped stress balls are also available.

The Testicle Shape: There are many campaigns trying to get men to check themselves regularly for lumps. Doing so could save your life. 2500 of these shapes were recently handed out at a professional football game to get this very important life saving message to men and women attending the match.
