Our kid-testers didn't really notice anything different about this glue stick, but parents appreaciate that this extra strength formula keeps more things stuck better - even stuff that usually falls off.
WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I use this glue all the time. It is my favourite because it lasts a long time and it doesn't get all white and sticky. It comes off on the paper smoothly. I don't see it. I used it on my big fort project. none of the pieces came off.
This is very very sticky glue! i can stick my googly eyes and my popsicle sticks together and they dont fall off. I can glue all my papers together. Its a very big glue!
Well after I saw how well it stuck the paper to Mia's box I decided to take it to school, I need all the help I can get and I don't want to waste time waiting for stuff to stick together.
My school project was really nice and the papers I stuck to my box with the glue held well. I even glued a picture of myself on top and it didn't come off.
Pretty much same as any other glue stick I've had. but, I did use it to glue a photo of myself on a piece of paper for school and it held it well. Mom says that is pretty good because sometimes photos don't stick unless you use hot glue. I am using the glue stick at school. I like that its big too because I wont run out fast.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
The glue seems to be very strong. We have glued popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, pompoms and paper and all stick well with the glue. It dries quickly and glides on smoothly. it is not greasy like other gluesticks. It is also quite large so it should last a while and it only has a slight scent.
I use this glue for all my paper projects. Love that it is unscented and it holds well. It lasts forever. I have used it and my kids have used it and it still has a long life. I like that the glue goes on smoothly and you don't see it.
Works well, easy to clean up. My son ( 9 ) has taken it to school cause he says he likes that he doesn't have to wait for long for stuff to stick together.
