Helix Flexible Ruler
Advantages: Flexible, Durable, Colourful, CHEAP!!
A year ago, after deciding to further my education, I decided to stock up on stationery and equipment. As I had recently left my job, I was looking for quality at a bargain (as always!) - and was happy to try non-branded items.
So, I found myself in the art/crafts/stationery aisle of my local Asda Walmart. They stocked two rulers which matched my requirements (30cm).
One was clear and sturdy which came in a white plastic casing, priced at £1.50. The other came in a choice of bright colours and felt flimsy, but at 69p I thought it was worth trying out.
Up until yesterday I thought this was Asda's own brand because as can be seen from the picture above - all it says is 'flexible' in the middle - and well, the price was excellent (compared to the other one anyway!).
The main feature of this ruler (*surprise surprise*) is it's flexibility! Sometimes during exams this doubles up as a stress-buster! I can fold it completely in half, and then again and almost again... squeeze it...twist it - but regardless of what I subject it to, it always detangles itself to lie flat!
I did worry the flimsiness may affect the lines and make them bow after a while but this has not been a problem.
I wanted to review this because it is very durable and a bargain! Imagine my surprise when while searching for this online (so Dooyoo could add it to the site) I found out that this is actually part of Helix's range!
This ruler measures 0-12 inches on one side and 0-30cm on the other side.
It has been made in China, and would be suitable for all ages in my opinion - especially as there are colours to suit all personal preferences.
Summary: Other than melting this, I can't see how else it could be damaged!!
