Desk Toys and Stress Balls – More Than Just Office Toys

Are you stressed at work? Overwhelmed? Tensed? Well, when the stress or boredom level is high at the office, and you wish you can have something to let off some steam and turn that frown upside down, go ahead and grab some desk toys. Desk toys are fun items that can make you feel more relaxed and comfortable, more valued and more at home in your office.

Desk toys often come in those fun, functional things such as a samurai letter opener, a pirate spin folder that do not just hold your papers but twirls round and round when you flick the spinner, paper clips that act like your ideal assistantâ??s happy head nodding in constant agreement, as well as tux penguin memo clips that do not just offer the very utilities that they were meant for – they also give an eye candy value to every office desk and an ice-breaking relief to those who own them.

Stress balls, though some are actually not shaped like balls, are fun and usually silly desk toys made especially for office workers who spend a lot of time on their jobs and desperately need a break from their stressful environment. For instance, if you want to break someone elseâ??s nose and let out a foul mouth expression, save yourself from the dirty consequence and instead get yourself the swearing punching ball or the larger swearing punching bag. Or, you can get a scream pillow in case you want to scream and not want anyone to hear you, or a telephone stress toy in case you want to slam the receiver on a cheaper phone than the real thing, or better still, a stress express flying helicopter in case you want to send something flying across the room or outside the window.

How would you feel about tearing, burning, or crumpling a bundle of 100 dollar bills? Now you can even if youâ??re in the middle of an economic crisis! Very satisfying, donâ??t you think? And if your computer problems is really bugging you, the â??Computer Bug Zapper – Zap Your Software & Hardware Problems may be just what you need. Did you know that some programmers or tech guys wish there is really such a cool thing?

In some cubicles, you can even find toys like â??Dilbert â??The Bossâ?? Stress Toyâ?, â??Boss Tossâ?, â??Grow A New Bossâ?, â??Mr. Boss – Screaming Pen Holderâ?, â??The Bossâ? Mugs, â??Salariesâ? Mugs, and other toys emphasizing the word â??Bossâ?? or â??Salary/Salariesâ??. Do you wonder why? Because every once in a while, or at some point in your life, you might find yourself working for a shitty boss or for a company that offers shitty pay. Since you understandably cannot take out your anger on your boss or on your company, why not take it out on the toy then, huh?

In the grand scheme of things, desk toys serve their purpose of making their owners – the office cubicle occupants, that is â?? happy and satisfied at work, and also disarm and make their office visitors happy, too. So the next time you find some of these toys in an office supplies store or in a novelty shop, instead of just ignoring them, stop and think about how many people have made friendly acquaintances or new, loyal customers by these things, as well as how many more whose lives and sanities have been saved by this simple toys! Perhaps then you would want to consider buying some for yourself. Remember, a happy worker is a good worker, and while youâ??re at it, you do want to be a good worker, donâ??t you?
