The Chameleon Scotch Magic tape dispenser puts the fun in functional office accessories! This chameleon design is cute and whimsical. The scotch tape is held inside the chameleon body, and the tape dispenses out of the mouth, like a tongue, landing on an adorable, hapless fly, where the cutting blade is. The dispenser is durable but lightweight. The tape rolls out smoothly, and it cuts off easily and evenly. The packaging is sturdy, protecting the dispenser well, and has a desert background to add to the fun. The dispenser comes with a roll of scotch magic tape, so you don't have to worry about buying some right away. It is refillable. I really like this tape dispenser. I only wish it had come with instructions for how to open it. I spent about ten minutes trying to figure out how the dispenser opens before I discovered that the chameleon pulls apart, down the middle, allowing you to start the roll of tape or change out an empty roll. An informative tab our sticker would have helped. The packaging also said that the chameleon changes color with your touch. When I first tried this out, I saw no change whatsoever. Although I keep my house temperatures at 75 degrees, I thought my touch still should have caused some color change. So I tried blowing on it with my hair dryer set on hot, to see if this would cause a color change. Nothing. But when I rubbed ice on the dispenser, it turned a little bit darker green. So I put the dispenser in the freezer for ten minutes. When I took it out afterwards and touched it, I could see a faint change of color to a lighter shade of green, a yellowish green, but it was almost imperceptible. I think that a color change to a more contrasting color like blue or red would have been better. Overall, I really like the chameleon tape dispenser. It adds a bit of charm to my desk and helps me not "blend in" with the crowd! I give it four and a half stars out of five. I would recommend this tape dispenser to anyone who enjoys fun, functional desk supplies! I received a free sample of this tape dispenser in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Unique looking desktop tape dispenser

I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. There are a few thing that I like about this item that I don't care for and a few that I do. So here is my feedback. The look of the item is unique - I have never seen a Scotch Tape Dispenser that looked like this - its a fun design that creates conversation from those that see it on my desk. The Chameleon sticking its tongue out to catch the flying insect is fun. The downfall of this item is key on three points. First off the color changing for me just didn't happen. I tried holding my hands on it for several moments, I tried sticking it in the freezer and then holding it - but none of those seemed to make any color change that was mildly noticeable. That was a bummer. The second challenge was actually opening the dispenser to add the tape without directions. That was hard because the item is plastic and I was concerned that I would break it by prying it open. I finally went online and found a video of how to open this up. Then from there it was still challenging for me to get my fingers positioned to get the tape out of the mouth. The third issue is the lack of weight in the base. I am accustomed to using a weighted tape dispenser with a rubber base (holding it in place when you pull the tape). This item is not weighted and does not stay in place when you pull the tape. You must pull the tape and hold the Chameleon down to dispense. Seems like extra work to me. So if you want an item that starts a conversation, get one of these. If you want something that changes color or stays in position when using, you want to stay away from this.

Cute, but it requires two hands.. (more)..

By hrlaser

from So. Calif.

Comments about 3M 1009125 1009125 3M Scotch Magic Tape Dispenser - Cosmo:

Cute product but it's not weighted so it requies both hands to use.. it's supposed to change colors when held, but I've never seen it do that. I just used up the roll of tape that came inside it, but there's no place inside it to hold a spare roll, so I had to buy one. The dispenser always feels to me like the tabs in slots on its base are going to break when it has to be pulled off the unweighted base in order to open it to get the first roll started, or put in a new roll and it's VERY difficult to see how much tape is left.. I have a decades-old magic tape dispenser that is heavily weighted so one can use it with one hand - it also holds a spare roll, has a non-slip rubber pad on the bottom, and a clear, pop-off lid..it may not be cute, but it's functionally highly superior.. I'd rate the Chameleon high for cuteness, but low for construction quality.. kids would probably love it for the cuteness, and it's definitely a conversation piece, but it should be weighted, have a non-slip pad on the bottom, and hold a spare roll of tape... I'm giving it a low rating for all these reasons and a "no" recommendation, unless you're a parent whose kid(s) would love it.. the yes or no recommend choice should also have a "Maybe" or an "it depends."..

Very cute tape dispenser!

I got this tape dispenser free to try. I gave it to my 9 year old daughter to put on her desk. She loved it. Previously she had just been using the individual rolls of tape that come in the clear plastic tape. She's very happy with this dispenser.

Fun idea, questionable practibility.

By Mom42boys

from Stillwater, MN, United States

Comments about 3M 1009125 1009125 3M Scotch Magic Tape Dispenser - Cosmo:

I received the Chameleon tape dispenser free, from 3M, to review. While the idea of having a tape dispenser be a chameleon is clever, (tape dispenses from the mouth as a tongue) the actual process of utilizing the tape is hampered by the fact that the dispenser is neither heavy enough to remain still while the tape is pulled out, or able to be secured to the surface it is placed upon Therefore, you cannot use just one hand to pull a piece of tape from the dispenser, which rather negates the point of the dispenser. I tried to use it while wrapping a birthday present, and I had to continually remind myself to take a piece of tape BEFORE I made my folds. It was a bit frustrating! It's neat to look at, but sadly, lacks in the usability area.

Color Changing???

By gilbert 33428

from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about 3M 1009125 1009125 3M Scotch Magic Tape Dispenser - Cosmo:

The very first draw for me was the cuteness PLUS the color changing factor. Although it remains cute, why would you call it color changing when, in fact, it really is not. You say it is a very subtle color change in your comment to the reviews, but why bother. It really would have been cute if Scotch had figured out a way to have it change colors - truly change colors. Isn't this something that could have actually been done?

Cute Dispenser

By stacycummings14

from Pembroke Pines, FL, United States

Comments about 3M 1009125 1009125 3M Scotch Magic Tape Dispenser - Cosmo:

This cute green Chameleon is a great addition to any desk, it brightens the look instantly . It also functions well. The tape unravels smoothly and there's no snagging. The serrated blade cuts the tape cleanly and leaves no hanging pieces. My tween daughter loved using it instead of roll of tape by itself. It claims it changes color, it does only a little if your hands are warm and you touch it. The color moves from green to a slightly lighter shade of green, not very noticeable unless you are really looking. I was looking forward to a bigger shift in color but nevertheless it still is really adorable and it functions well. It easy to refill the tape too as the Chameleon opens right down the middle with a little force and you can pop the tape in and it snaps back easily together. This is a welcomed change because I've seen a lot of other brands with really nice characters like unicorns etc but they are not refillable so I've always opted not to purchase for that 1 reason. I think this will make a nice gift for any student or for any adult who is young at heart and needs a little pop of color on an otherwise drab desk. * I received a complimentary sample of the tape dispenser from 3M in exchange for an honest review .

Cute

By Vicky342

from Pennsylvania, United States

Comments about 3M 1009125 1009125 3M Scotch Magic Tape Dispenser - Cosmo:

I received this as a free sample. It is cute and sturdier than I thought it would be, but not very heavy - you can't set it on a counter and use one hand to pull tape without it tipping over. If you want to use it that way, maybe you can add a weight to the base. I might try that. Since this is so cute, I thought it might be geared for kids to use and that therefore the blade wouldn't be very sharp, but it seems plenty sharp enough to cut cleanly. As far as color changing, I thought the description meant it would change color all over, but it only does where you touch it, and then not a lot. This would be great for kids or for a classroom.

Adorable!

Comments about 3M 1009125 1009125 3M Scotch Magic Tape Dispenser - Cosmo:

I received this product free from 3M to review. It is an adorable tape dispenser to personalize your work space with. I love the vibrant color, and the fact that the tape is the tongue (although somewhat hard to access when starting a new roll). I wish the color change was more psychedelic since it is hard to detect, but the idea behind it is awesome! It definitely makes my work space more fun and creative!

Cute Tape Dispenser

By kgriffin413

from Connecticut, United States

Comments about 3M 1009125 1009125 3M Scotch Magic Tape Dispenser - Cosmo:

I think the design of this tape dispenser is really cute and it works well. I couldn't give it a 5 star rating because it is described to change color when touched, which isn't very accurate. When you hold it down to get one piece of tape, there is no color change. I held it for upwards of a minute to see a slight change from light green to a yellowish color, but if you're using it as normal, you wouldn't see a color change. The packaging is well designed, and it comes with a roll of tape which is nice.
