Desk Toys

Updated on October 2, 2014

Office Toys to Keep Handy for a Fun Break

Do you spend your days stuck at a desk? Are you sometimes bored out of your mind? I've been there. Desk toys can help the work day go quicker!

I sat in a cubicle the better part of my 20s and 30s. When it all got to be too much and I needed a quick break, one of these desk toys would have been a welcome relief! Instead, I usually got up and talked to a coworker. This was frowned upon making me look like a slacker.

Keep your professional edge and stay at your desk. A desk toy or two provides a much-needed break from the tedium and lets you stay at our desk where you can pretend to be busy.

      I don't have any desk toys, but I do love the office monkey desk set..I could relax with that for a few minutes, and perhaps use it for a humor break!
