Where did that phrase come from? Boys toys, toys for boys etc. The time was| Time Was when you could bet your last pound that the car with wide wheels, noisy exhaust, flared arches, and an engine screaming ‘change gear NOW NOW NOW! ‘ would be driven by a boy. These days it is as likely to be a young lady (another word where the meaning has changed dramatically).
Boys toys has come to mean anything that makes boys happy that they can buy, swap share look at play with admire show off etc. This can be anything from a gleaming red Ferrari, to something as simple as a jumping bean.
The biggest surge in boys toys is in the unusual gift area, I mean what Do you buy for the boy who has everything? How about a remote control miniature helicopter?
These tiny beasties are incredibly small, incredibly lightweight and are remote control, giving kids of all ages fun. Fly them around your office when the boss isn’t looking, Better still, if YOU are the boss, fly them around when he IS looking.
How about a miniature sweety grabber, all the fun of the fair in a little plastic box. Control the levers, grab the sweeties, and bring them back to the opening where they drop and you eat them. Takes you back to when you were a child.
Another big growth area is USB powered gadgets and gizmos. These little things plug into your USB port of your computer, laptop each other, and are immediately ready to go.
Two of the most popular are the USB boxer, and the USB pole dancer. The USB boxer stands in front of that punch bag and hits it for six, or rather, you hit it for 6.
Once the USB Boxer gets going he’ll punch away as you tap the left and right arrow keys jabbing the speed ball as he rotates around it. Boy does it tire your fingers out quickly! With various game modes and an automatic setting to unleash the USB Boxers full potential you can just sense how highly addictive and immensely competitive this office toy really is. The easy to use software records all your punches and sets your scores, a perfect excuse to gather all your mates together for a full blown on contest to see who really is the toughest of them all!
The other favourite is the pole dancing lady (is there such a thing?) Complete with podium and light show, she will gyrate and make you smile, a real great executive toy. Best of all, she works for free.
So if you are lost for gift ideas for the man (or boy ) in your life, or if you are looking for executive gifts with a difference, think of the new generation of boys toys, gifts, gadgets and gizmos.
