Tippex Pocket Mouse
Advantages: Easy to use, don't need to wait for it to dry
Disadvantages: Price, runs out quick, end of the reel flakey, product prone to break
This roll on dry tippex comes in a long strip inside a cute plastic mouse design. Open the mouse's nose to get access to the Tippex and simply apply by rolling the nose along your mistake. Write over the Tippex straight away.
--Benefits of the Product--
The obvious main advantage of this Tippex mouse is that you don't have to wait for it to dry but can write over it straight away. It is easy to use and apply compared to the paint on Tippex which can make a big mess.
It is also safer if you have children who want to use Tippex for school, in that it is less likely to get spilt everywhere and there are no nasty fumes emanating from your piece of work after you have applied the Tippex.
A staple item for a school pencilcase for neat work, I can remember when these first came out, they are also quite a novelty for the kids too! It will encourage them to make their work as neat and tidy as possible though novelty stationary can either be a distraction or a motivation in a boring class!
--Disadvantages of the Product--
Towards the end of the reel of Tippex, you often find the tape becomes flakey and hence doesn't do a great job of covering your mistakes!
The expense of the product is something to think about when considering whether to make a purchase or not as if you buy these often (they run out fairly quickly if you do a lot of writing) and the cost can soon add up.
These can break quite easily too, as the tape falls off the reel if you are too violent with your corrections! This can render it difficult to use or worthless so if you are happy with the original Tippex, stick with it!
--Pricing and Availability--
I often find Tippex products quite expensive and it is for that reason that they are no longer a part of my standard stationary collection.
They are available from stationary shops like WHSmiths and Rymans though I would estimate that Rymans are probably better value as WHSmiths aren't very reasonably priced on stationary! Also try supermarkets for a better deal.
--Would I buy it again?--
I would only really buy Tippex again if I had important documents to write that needed to be perfect. Other than that, I don't really mind just crossing out my errors as most things I would write formally would be on the computer! If you use Tippex this is one of their products which is pretty convenient with the dry formula but it comes at a price!
