My kids are constantly asking for a piece of tape for so many different reasons – to fix their homework pages, to hang their artwork all over the walls and doors, to repair the dollar bills they were just fighting over, and even on occasion to hold their socks up or tape their mouths shut. Since they don’t understand restraint and I can’t stand for them to waste it, I am the keeper of the tape and I feel like I’m forever saying “not too much please”! When Scotch recently sent me several of their products to review I was thrilled to receive the Scotch Pop-Up Tape Refillable Deskgrip dispenser because it is filled with pre-cut strips of tape that are already the perfect length so they can grab it themselves and I don’t have to worry about them taking too much. Plus the rubber bottom grips the table when you pull a strip out so you only need one hand, but the dispenser easily glides along the table when you need to move it from kid to kid or remove it to put away when activity time is over.
I was also super happy to get to try out the new Scotch Magic Greener Tape, which is made from over 75% recycled or plant based materials, and comes in a refillable dispenser. It doesn’t appear to look, feel or stick any differently than the regular kind of Scotch Magic Tape, but I feel much better about the copious amounts of tape my kids like to use knowing that it is so much “greener”.
Of course Scotch Magic Tape has always been my favorite brand for wrapping gifts and other household needs because other brands just don’t really compare in my opinion. So that’s my excuse for keeping the Scotch Magic Tape One-Handed Dispenser they sent me all to myself – I love it so much that I’m going to have to refuse to share! (shhhhhhhhh – don’t tell the kids that I have it!) The dispenser is refillable and works by simply rolling it across the object or paper that you want to apply tape to, then use the green button to cut the tape. Easy breezy – and so much better than trying to hold wrapping paper in place with one hand while you struggle to cut off the appropriate size piece of tape with your other hand!
The nice people at Scotch would also like to give one lucky reader a prize package of goodies just like the one they sent me that includes a Scotch Pop-Up Tape Refillable Deskgrip dispenser, the new Scotch Magic Greener Tape, and a Scotch Magic Tape One-Handed Dispenser.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Scotch and received Scotch Magic Tape products to facilitate my review, Scotch Magic Tape products to give away, and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
