Desktop Toys To Amuse You Until 5 O’Clock

Who doesn’t love to slack off at work? Let’s face it, some of you are probably reading this on company time right now. Would you like us to throw in some business-speak in case the boss looks over your shoulder?

“Here at FutureVision E-Business Solutions, we specialize in visualizing transparent infrastructures to better extend 24/365 e-commerce while monetizing front-end communities with vertical social media synergies. Our ambient garage start-up atmosphere and engaging company culture actualizes exciting new developments in transitioning cross-platform partnerships.”

That should do it.

Slacking at work has a long, noble tradition in the office environment. Many a bored employee has discovered previously untapped artistic vision skills though no other avenue than a pile of those black binder clips. In fact they should sell those by the thousand-count bag, right next to the Legos.

But if your company is getting a little worried about the office supplies budget after you discovered your latent talent for Post-It note origami, you might have to turn to office desk-top toys. The cool thing with these is that they’re also fun for visitors to play with, so you can pacify guests for a few minutes while you punch up their spreadsheet or file their TPS reports or whatever tiresome thing they want you to do.

You can only read so many Dilbert cartoons and play so many games of Windows Freecell, so browse our list of toys for office workers. We hope this gets you through your shift until you can figure out how to ninja out of the building through the ventilation system.

As long as you’re not Insane Clown Posse, you know how magnets work (how old is that meme now?). You can find no end of demonstration videos of magnet sets like these on YouTube. They’re hard to describe without seeing them in action, but these magnets hold rigid structure and yet have just enough attraction to easily manipulate them. The effect is a cross between modeling clay and modular construction units, as you mold these into cubes, wheels, gears, dodecahedrons, and anything else you can dream up.

This is the Fidget Cube, a jointed cube made of blocks which flip, fold, and cascade in a variety of configurations. It’s sort of like a Jacob’s Ladder in 3D. We like the classy metal model for looking cooler and being more satisfying to twiddle.

Sandbox toys are a common favorite in desktop toys, but this is a unique take on the concept. It’s a box of magnetic sand, which can be manipulated with various small tools into pleasing landscapes. It’s a big favorite among the ASMR crowd – that stands for “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response,” a pleasurable sensation which is triggered by delicate things like the gentle ticking of magnetic sand grains on a metal tool, tactile stimulation from sand, whispering sounds, and whatnot. It’s great fun for those who are into that sort of thing, and still a fun toy even without the ASMR kick.
