Bored at work? Play with a miniature Zibits robot – which is noted for sparking creative thoughts while seated at desks. Available at Toys R Us, each of the dozen Zibits robot s are shaped differently, and are controlled by a small remote; the Zibits automatically powers off if it hasn’t been used in a while, thus preserving battery power. A Zibits robot is so enthralling that it wipes away all memories of long meetings and excel file input. It will also endear you to co-workers.
