Review of Product

Putting googly eyes on your craft projects is a simple and fun way to really animate your creations. They are widely available and really affordable. This particular bunch of googly eyes stands out from many of the others on the market for a few reasons. First, these 1500 googly eyes come in a variety of colors (blue, green, red, pink, yellow and white) AND a variety of sizes. Second, they are all self-adhesive - simply pick your eyes, peel the backs and stick them on whatever you have.  This drastically reduces the mess and waste of oozing glue. Lastly, these eyes arrive well organized by size and color in a reusable clear plastic container.

The two biggest issues with these eyes are the backs of the stickers and the sizes. The backs on these stickers can be a little difficult to peel off. The task of peeling the backs off these sticks is made even harder when the eyes are smaller. This brings us to the second biggest issue. There are a lot more smaller eyes than bigger eyes in this container. Overall, Amazon users really like these googly eyes giving them 4.5 out of 5 stars with over 300 reviews.

Review on Product

The product description says it all. It's one of the best products an avid crafter/scrapbooker will have in their toolbox. Crafters will appreciate the two size flexibility, the ease of use and their end product. It reduces the time spent searching for the perfect sticker book from crafting stores and online websites. Users can pick between a 3 inch or 5 inch adhesive spool and also pick from Xyron's other refill options, such as permanent adhesive, repositionable adhesive, laminate adhesive, magnet, and more.  Note, if you want long lasting images/stickers use the laminate adhesive spool.

Using this machine is easy. Simply select your image, place and guide your image on the feed tray, use one hand to hold the machine in place and the other to crank the handle (this will feed the image through the machine). Once the image passes through the machine it becomes a sticker. Use the built-in slide cut bar to remove the sticker from the machine. Use scissors to cut the image to desired shape and size, then place it where ever you please. There is absolutely no electricity needed and there is no melting plastic smell.

The two biggest issues with the Xyron is the amount of wasted adhesive and the price of refill adhesive. Overall, users really like the machine's ease of use giving it 4.6 out of 5 stars with over 1,200 reviews.

Review on Product

Pony beads are economical and easy to incorporate in a variety of craft projects. This particular bag of multicolor opaque beads from Darice delivers 1000 beads for well under a penny a bead. The generous easy-to-thread hole in the middle keeps frustration low and creative minds engaged. The bead colors are distinct and can be used for other education purposes as well (i.e. math, pattern recognition, motor skill development, etc.).

The main flaw to be aware of is the various imperfections of a few of the beads. Some beads have non-smooth edges that can scratch the users, some beads are not formed well so the beads cannot lay flush to the neighboring bead, etc..  This problem is easily resolved by sorting through them, older kids likely will have no issues with this, but it is still an inconvenience. Overall, these beads still deliver on color, quantity and value. Amazon users give this product 4.6 out of 5 with over 1,300 reviews.
