Make Work More Fun With Office Toys

There are many sounds that make up the background noise of the PayScale office. At any given moment, I can hear my co-workers giggling over a YouTube video (maybe this one of the Kitty Cat dance – note: it's catchy and awesome), playing ping pong, and sometimes involved in an epic battle, pitting a toy helicopter against a Nerf toy that shoots foam discs. We might work hard, but we play hard, too.

From my desk, which is situated on the mezzanine, overlooking the entire office, I can see no fewer than 10 toys, including the following: 

My co-worker behind me has a tin of Spam mints. Seriously. Look: 

Spam mints

Another co-worker has a robot pencil sharpener. I repeat. ROBOT. PENCIL. SHARPENER.


Yup, we're no strangers to Awesome here at PayScale. In fact, today we are wearing ugly holiday sweaters and many of us are participating in Bring Your Dog to Work Day. Between the pooches and the toys, the PayScale office is a fun place to be this #CasualFriday. 

We Want To Hear From You

  Tell us your favorite office toys! What gadgets are on your desk and how do you and your co-workers play? Join in the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #CasualFriday.
