My little sister recently received Martha Stewart glitter stamps as a birthday gift. Here are my thoughts on the product:
The idea is really cool. Their is a pad that you spread some glue on. You choose some rubber stamps, and stick them onto a plastic block. Then you stamp the stamps in the glue pad, and press it onto your paper.
Shake the desired color of glitter onto the paper, and tap off. This leaves the design on your paper.
They work pretty well as long as you have enough glue on the pad.
But there are a few problems...the glue pad gets covered with glitter really quickly. And you have to add glue to the pad all the time. Also, the glitter comes out of the bottle really quickly. You have to shake the glitter onto a paper plate, and then dump it back into the bottle. But young kids CAN'T do this.
Only buy this product if you like glitter. Glitter seems to float everywhere, and everything in the house becomes sparkly. My fiance's feet were all sparkly the other day...=)
But the colors of glitter are really pretty and shiny. And they are lots of fun to use. So on a scale of 1-10, I would give this a 6.
What are your thoughts on this product?
