8 Fun and Geeky Desk Toys for IT People

8 Fun and Geeky Desk Toys for IT People

As geeks, we spend plenty of time sitting in front of the computer. This is especially true if you’re in information technology or working in the data center, and it’s probably safe to say that most IT professionals spend far more time at the computer than we want to (or than our significant others want us to). Thankfully, there are plenty of desk toys out there that let us feel like kids again as we play with them while we work through our daily tasks. Check out this list of 8 fun and geeky desk toys for IT people that you can get on Amazon or beyond.

Funko Pop Figures

What says ‘geek’ more than cute little stylized toys of your favorite fandoms? Well, maybe that sign would say geek in a Yoda dialect. But, these Funko Pop Figures are even geekier than the cartoonish Yoda doll you find at your local comic shop.

Battlestar Galactica Coasters

Turn your boring desk into a great space with geeky Battlestar Galactica coasters. These 3-D, die-cut coaster sets come with either 4 or 6 high-quality stone resin tiles in an elegant package. Coasters are made from strong and durable material that resists heat so they’ll protect your furniture and keep you cool! This awesome desk toy will make you the envy of all your coworkers.

Star Wars Wine Glasses

If you love Star Wars as much as I do, then you know that one of the best things about it is all the obscure references to stuff that no one else gets. Case in point: this Stormtrooper wine glass from ThinkGeek. Though it does make me wonder if there’s a R2-D2 shaped wine glass out there somewhere.

Bioshock Infinite Plush

The Bioshock Infinite plush is so adorable! It comes with a removable headset, a mini Big Daddy figurine, and an inflatable penny that lights up when it floats. You also get an in-game code to unlock the exclusive Protector Splicer skin. This plush costs around $34.99 on Amazon.

Pacman Keychain

Don’t get bored at work! Keep yourself amused with this classic 1980s game: PAC-MAN! The retro keychain fits neatly in your pocket or attach it to your backpack. Play by yourself or take turns playing with others while keeping score on the included pad. Put a whole new twist on the old arcade game right from your desk!

Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger

One of the geekiest desk toys we found is the Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger. If you’re a fan of Back to the Future, you’ll love this 3D printed design. This battery-powered charger will charge two USB devices on your desk or in your car without overcharging your devices so they stay safe from rapid depletion. Plus, it’s shaped like Doc Brown’s famous time machine!

Joker Mask Stress Ball

Whether you’re just looking to relax a little or you want a break from staring at a screen, this inflatable joker mask can help. You’ll be blowing up stress in no time. Plus, this fun and inexpensive desk toy is easy to pack on trips or carry in your bag.

Furry Underware Pillow Case

This pillowcase, while not technically a toy, is an inexpensive way to spruce up your cubicle or home office. Adding a little extra comfort on top of your low-cost foam mattress or old bedding will make you feel right at home in the wee hours of the morning.

A pillowcase might seem like an unimportant addition to your workspace, but what is really holding you back from getting that much-needed restful night of sleep?
