The Cubes
It's "Dilbert meets Legos"
Remember those "Little People" playsets we had as kids? I think my siblings and I had the garage, airport, schoolhouse, houseboat, and Sesame Street sets.

Want to recall the nostalgia of those toys, but with a bit of a warped modern twist? Check out The Cubes.

Each set comes with one 2-3/4" posable plastic figure and all the necessary plastic parts to build a classic corporate cube: four walls, desk, chair, file cabinet, in/out box, phone, and computer. It also includes a sticker sheet of decor for your cube -- complete with graphs, charts, screens for the computer and pithy office posters. You also get a job title sticker sheet so you can create a convoluted and meaningless position for your employee... just like real life!

The Cubes' webpage also provides an online job title generator, as well as downloadable cube decor, and sets of computer icons for your own computer screen.

There's even an expansion set, so you can give your virtual employee a cell phone, laptop and other office essentials. I wonder if they come with a tiny Starbucks coffee cup?
