Educational guide: informal

Of course, the benefits from such an informal way of enhancing one's natural talents are different, according to the group we belong to.

But it is a way of learning that has been tested over time and has proven its benefits. As we can see in so many games being played all over the world, not in the least in the field of sports. Or over the internet.

Although very often in those fields the most important factor of learning through playing is often lost. The need for spontaneity and the possibility of "failure" of being allowed a second chance, of trying again. Which is a feature of all "play" , in which we repeat for fun, for the pleasure of the game and as such "learn" far more than we could have learned if it was just about scoring.

This open nature of a game is why it has always been inviting to the human spirit and why we created such a simple thing as a ball, Ahrbol, yet so innovative.

For whom? Playing is learning

Ahrbol is for people and especially for groups of people, coming physically together. Starting with as few as two, to as many who want to join in and have fun.

This was done on purpose. Today's world already provides plenty of tools to do things on your own, or through virtual contact over the internet. And that is a wonderful development and certainly has its merits.

But it is by no means a match for really bringing people together physically and enjoying a game of moving about and learning. So play Ahrbol anywhere you want, with whomever you want. If you are alone, take Ahrbol , go outside and gently throw the ball to someone. And for sure, you will get a reaction. Somebody will catch Ahrbol and you can start to play. Fun!


To a child living means playing, discovering, developing. All of this is done effortlessly. So you can hand Ahrbol to a child and intuitively it will know how to play and it will be intrigued by all the colorful pictures.


Teenagers are people in turmoil. Their fast changing bodies demand a lot of attention and cause a lot of uneasiness. All of this has to be incorporated in a rapid changing world. Yet , the child is still there and present.


Adults tend to forget to play , in their busy lives. There simply seems very little room or space for "pure play" without any other purpose attached to it. But this attitude robs a lot of adults of some dearly needed "fun and pleasure", as a means of appeasing stress and reminding people : life is more than just work.

The elderly

Some elderly people grow naturally more fond of games as they age. Others don't. And that is unfortunate, as learning whilst one ages is primordial to the well-being of a person and a certain way of avoiding the retirement syndrome and the much feared loneliness.

The impaired people

Ahrbol does not claim to be a toy for all the impaired people. Of course playing with the ball is not fit for those who cannot hold a ball or who cannot see. As those elements are vital to the game.


Few things are as much fun as playing together as a family. Playing together as a family brings along a special sense of well-being and is an excellent way of bonding, to reinforce the social fabric of society.

Common interest

What is so unique about Ahrbol? You can play it with virtually anyone. Starting with yourself. Although it is designed to move immediately away from yourself to another person. The moment there are two people, you can start playing.
