The mailbox shaped creatures will bark, hoot, or growl to let you know a new message is received in the app. You can even have the critters read out the message to you in a silly voice. It adds a whole new layer of fun when asking about cover sheets.

Aqua Dance Game

These desktop mazes make use of the newest water-repellant coatings to make fun with just adding water. The low friction surface forces water to bead up in the walls of the maze so you can guide water to the goal in the same way you may have done as a kid with mazes filled with tiny metal balls. Just pump water into the maze and create your own desktop arcade.

Bring the classic lawn game to your cubicle. This kit includes mallets, croquet balls, wickets, and stakes so you can set up your own croquet course on your desk. Compete with co-workers for team bonding sessions, and store the set between games in tis attractive wooden box.
