Need A Work Excuse? Buy The Office Kid

Expand Your Working Mommy Group With The Office Kid

When a friend returned to work after maternity leave, a couple of her childless colleagues voiced envy of what they considered her "four month vacation." It sounds like they were perfect candidates for The Office Kid ($20). Invented by self-described "20 something childless advertising drones" who were jealous of their co-workers kidcentric excuses for missing work and wondered if the offspring even existed, the create-a-kid kit was born.

Anyone looking to impersonate a parent around the workplace can purchase the starter pack which includes a welcome letter and excuses, a framed picture of the child and art work to display in the office cubicle. For an additional $10, a doctor's note, more artwork or a sports team photograph can be bought.
