Move Over, Mini Zen Rock Garden

posted by on October 15 at 10:26 AM

The fad of soothing desktop toys may have passed in the 1980s, but that doesn’t mean the market will surrender. Now you can “Take a little time to relieve the stress at your desktop” with the Normandy Beach Executive Sandbox.


Nothing says to you colleagues that you’re a cool cucumber like the Normandy Beach Executive Sandbox. For only $24.99, you can practically hear the the rifles riddling the sandbags by your monitor.

PS: I came across this lovely toy while searching for the right Sea Monkey kit. I still can’t make up my mind.

I got sea monkeys for my birthday last year. It was fun for about a month. Then I realized they do nothing but swim and fuck endlessly so I flushed them.

Just my 2¢.

@1, just what exactly were you expecting them to do? Do some chorus line kicks? Storm Normandy?

I want the Iraqi Liberation Desktop Sandbox. When did they say those would be delivered?
