Happiness at work is playing with toys

An office replete with pinstripe suits and company memos hardly seems like the place for a bobble head doll.

Yet, more and more, that’s exactly where you”ll find them, along with Silly Putty, magnetic sculptures, foam dart guns and a Slinky or two.

When people visit his office, they occasionally play with a figurine, he said, and the toys make the office atmosphere lighter.
