Remember the old arcade game Whack-a-Mole? This is the same thing except that you connect to the computer to power it, and instead of whacking it, you tap the little critters when it lights up. It's highly addictive!

This Desktop Bowling Game gives you the perfect opportunity to practice your bowling - at your desk! Next time you're bored or stressed at work, practice your strikes on this solid wood, foot-long bowling alley. Includes 10 mini, hand-painted pins, and a metal ball.

Throw a Splatter Toy Instead of Your Chair. Are you so mad that you want to throw something? Throw these desk toys instead.  Throw them against the wall and they'll stick then slow bounce back to their orginal form.  Throw it down on the floor and it splatters and then it bounces back to its original shape. Fascinating to watch and you didn't break anything valuable. There are several splatter toys to choose from.  The tomato splatter ball looks realistic and makes a great gag gift.  The egg splatter ball looks just like a normal ball and when you throw it on the surface it looks like a fried egg.  The pink pig splatter ball just looks like a funny mess.  A great stress reliever, they're cute and squishy. However, keep in mind that these are not like stress balls.  They don't bounce and they can be punctured or break open if squeezed tightly instead of allowed to form back to its original shape.

A Day At The Races in your Office! These wind-up toys are hilarious to watch.   The grannies race with their own walkers, just wind them up and away they go. The speeding grandads are speedsters on their electric carts, complete with oxygen masks! Just pull them back and release and away they go!

Drum Your Fingers! Why twiddle your thumbs when they can practice on the drums. It's a hilarious way to keep keep your fingers active instead of just drumming them on the desk.  With enough practice, your fingers can drum out a real tune.

Hide This in Your Drawer. Pretend it's your boss or your evil client, either way it's a safe way to let off steam! This game comes with four figures, just place one on the catapult and launch them at the wall or a co-worker.  Figures and launcher are made of plastic.
