The Chameleon Scotch Magic tape dispenser puts the fun in functional office accessories! This chameleon design is cute and whimsical. The scotch tape is held inside the chameleon body, and the tape dispenses out of the mouth, like a tongue, landing on an adorable, hapless fly, where the cutting blade is. The dispenser is durable but lightweight. The tape rolls out smoothly, and it cuts off easily and evenly. The packaging is sturdy, protecting the dispenser well, and has a desert background to add to the fun. The dispenser comes with a roll of scotch magic tape, so you don't have to worry about buying some right away. It is refillable. I really like this tape dispenser. I only wish it had come with instructions for how to open it. I spent about ten minutes trying to figure out how the dispenser opens before I discovered that the chameleon pulls apart, down the middle, allowing you to start the roll of tape or change out an empty roll. An informative tab our sticker would have helped. The packaging also said that the chameleon changes color with your touch. When I first tried this out, I saw no change whatsoever. Although I keep my house temperatures at 75 degrees, I thought my touch still should have caused some color change. So I tried blowing on it with my hair dryer set on hot, to see if this would cause a color change. Nothing. But when I rubbed ice on the dispenser, it turned a little bit darker green. So I put the dispenser in the freezer for ten minutes. When I took it out afterwards and touched it, I could see a faint change of color to a lighter shade of green, a yellowish green, but it was almost imperceptible. I think that a color change to a more contrasting color like blue or red would have been better. Overall, I really like the chameleon tape dispenser. It adds a bit of charm to my desk and helps me not "blend in" with the crowd! I give it four and a half stars out of five. I would recommend this tape dispenser to anyone who enjoys fun, functional desk supplies! I received a free sample of this tape dispenser in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. There are a few thing that I like about this item that I don't care for and a few that I do. So here is my feedback. The look of the item is unique - I have never seen a Scotch Tape Dispenser that looked like this - its a fun design that creates conversation from those that see it on my desk. The Chameleon sticking its tongue out to catch the flying insect is fun. The downfall of this item is key on three points. First off the color changing for me just didn't happen. I tried holding my hands on it for several moments, I tried sticking it in the freezer and then holding it - but none of those seemed to make any color change that was mildly noticeable. That was a bummer. The second challenge was actually opening the dispenser to add the tape without directions. That was hard because the item is plastic and I was concerned that I would break it by prying it open. I finally went online and found a video of how to open this up. Then from there it was still challenging for me to get my fingers positioned to get the tape out of the mouth. The third issue is the lack of weight in the base. I am accustomed to using a weighted tape dispenser with a rubber base (holding it in place when you pull the tape). This item is not weighted and does not stay in place when you pull the tape. You must pull the tape and hold the Chameleon down to dispense. Seems like extra work to me. So if you want an item that starts a conversation, get one of these. If you want something that changes color or stays in position when using, you want to stay away from this.

Cute, but it requires two hands.. (more)..

By 

from So. Calif.

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

Cute product but it's not weighted so it requies both hands to use.. it's supposed to change colors when held, but I've never seen it do that. I just used up the roll of tape that came inside it, but there's no place inside it to hold a spare roll, so I had to buy one. The dispenser always feels to me like the tabs in slots on its base are going to break when it has to be pulled off the unweighted base in order to open it to get the first roll started, or put in a new roll and it's VERY difficult to see how much tape is left.. I have a decades-old magic tape dispenser that is heavily weighted so one can use it with one hand - it also holds a spare roll, has a non-slip rubber pad on the bottom, and a clear, pop-off lid..it may not be cute, but it's functionally highly superior.. I'd rate the Chameleon high for cuteness, but low for construction quality.. kids would probably love it for the cuteness, and it's definitely a conversation piece, but it should be weighted, have a non-slip pad on the bottom, and hold a spare roll of tape... I'm giving it a low rating for all these reasons and a "no" recommendation, unless you're a parent whose kid(s) would love it.. the yes or no recommend choice should also have a "Maybe" or an "it depends."..

Very cute tape dispenser!

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

I got this tape dispenser free to try. I gave it to my 9 year old daughter to put on her desk. She loved it. Previously she had just been using the individual rolls of tape that come in the clear plastic tape. She's very happy with this dispenser.

Fun idea, questionable practibility.

By 

from Stillwater, MN, United States

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

I received the Chameleon tape dispenser free, from 3M, to review. While the idea of having a tape dispenser be a chameleon is clever, (tape dispenses from the mouth as a tongue) the actual process of utilizing the tape is hampered by the fact that the dispenser is neither heavy enough to remain still while the tape is pulled out, or able to be secured to the surface it is placed upon Therefore, you cannot use just one hand to pull a piece of tape from the dispenser, which rather negates the point of the dispenser. I tried to use it while wrapping a birthday present, and I had to continually remind myself to take a piece of tape BEFORE I made my folds. It was a bit frustrating! It's neat to look at, but sadly, lacks in the usability area.

Color Changing???

By 

from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

The very first draw for me was the cuteness PLUS the color changing factor. Although it remains cute, why would you call it color changing when, in fact, it really is not. You say it is a very subtle color change in your comment to the reviews, but why bother. It really would have been cute if Scotch had figured out a way to have it change colors - truly change colors. Isn't this something that could have actually been done?

Cute Dispenser

By 

from Pembroke Pines, FL, United States

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

This cute green Chameleon is a great addition to any desk, it brightens the look instantly . It also functions well. The tape unravels smoothly and there's no snagging. The serrated blade cuts the tape cleanly and leaves no hanging pieces. My tween daughter loved using it instead of roll of tape by itself. It claims it changes color, it does only a little if your hands are warm and you touch it. The color moves from green to a slightly lighter shade of green, not very noticeable unless you are really looking. I was looking forward to a bigger shift in color but nevertheless it still is really adorable and it functions well. It easy to refill the tape too as the Chameleon opens right down the middle with a little force and you can pop the tape in and it snaps back easily together. This is a welcomed change because I've seen a lot of other brands with really nice characters like unicorns etc but they are not refillable so I've always opted not to purchase for that 1 reason. I think this will make a nice gift for any student or for any adult who is young at heart and needs a little pop of color on an otherwise drab desk. * I received a complimentary sample of the tape dispenser from 3M in exchange for an honest review .

Cute

By 

from Pennsylvania, United States

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

I received this as a free sample. It is cute and sturdier than I thought it would be, but not very heavy - you can't set it on a counter and use one hand to pull tape without it tipping over. If you want to use it that way, maybe you can add a weight to the base. I might try that. Since this is so cute, I thought it might be geared for kids to use and that therefore the blade wouldn't be very sharp, but it seems plenty sharp enough to cut cleanly. As far as color changing, I thought the description meant it would change color all over, but it only does where you touch it, and then not a lot. This would be great for kids or for a classroom.

Adorable!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

I received this product free from 3M to review. It is an adorable tape dispenser to personalize your work space with. I love the vibrant color, and the fact that the tape is the tongue (although somewhat hard to access when starting a new roll). I wish the color change was more psychedelic since it is hard to detect, but the idea behind it is awesome! It definitely makes my work space more fun and creative!

Cute Tape Dispenser

By 

from Connecticut, United States

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

I think the design of this tape dispenser is really cute and it works well. I couldn't give it a 5 star rating because it is described to change color when touched, which isn't very accurate. When you hold it down to get one piece of tape, there is no color change. I held it for upwards of a minute to see a slight change from light green to a yellowish color, but if you're using it as normal, you wouldn't see a color change. The packaging is well designed, and it comes with a roll of tape which is nice.

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

This is such a neat tape dispenser. The chameleon is so cute and is an easy and fun way to get a piece of tape easily when you need it. Also you can replace the tape easily, which is nice. The kids love it! It adds a little fun to an office space or whichever room you choose. I would definitely recommend it and definitely purchase it. I received this complimentary of 3M for testing purposes and my honest review. All opinions are my own.

CUTE, BUT NO CIGAR

By 

from Dearborn Heights, MI, United States

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

I received this tape dispenser from Discover 3M and initially thought "how cute!" But after using and studying it, it does have some drawbacks. First, it is very light and does not stay on the desk when the tape is pulled...your other hand must hold it down. Also, the "changing color" aspect does not really come through.....in order to get a bit of color change, you must hold it really tight, and even then, the color change is minimal. It would be a cute item for a child's desk, however, so the cuteness factor does win out there! Maybe if the base could be made heavier, this would be a more practical and usable product, while retaining it's "cuteness!"

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

I received this free from 3m/Scotch to review. I thought this would be a cute replacement in my office instead of my normal heavy duty Scotch brand tape dispenser. Unfortunately as soon as I took it out of the box, I realized that this would never do in an office setting. I'm used to a weighted down tape dispenser, so it takes two hands to detach a piece of tape. I also realized it's very difficult to change the tape roll. You have to take it apart, and the plastic looks flimsy so I don't expect it to last very long with repeated roll changes. The only reason it gets 3 stars instead of 1, is that I gave it to my 5 and 6 year old and they instantly loved it despite all its flaws.

Whimsical tape dispenser.

By 

from Buchanan, MI, United States

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

I received this dispenser free from 3M to rate and review. I really like this dispenser. The chameleon is adorable, and the color is a pretty green. I smile when I see it. I keep it on my home desk, and it looks great, and works great. It is a happy addition to my organization items. Because there wasn't any instructions included, it took me a little while to figure out how to open the dispenser, but common sense prevailed. It splits down the middle and is more sturdy than it looks. It is easy to refill and use. Although the package states the colors will change, I have not yet been able to get it to change color. My husband was able to get the color to change, although ever so slightly its hard to recognize. I would have liked the changing color to work better.

Super cute design

By 

from Oregon, United States

Comments about Scotch Cosmo Tape Dispenser:

The Chameleon Tape Dispenser is so cute. It make a boring ol' design cute and functional at the same time. When I first got it, I was surprised to see that it changed color. But it really doesn't change color all that much. It changes from a lime green to a slightly yellow lime green. Also, this tape dispenser could benefit from being weighted and or having gripping feet on the underside. It seems to slide all around when you're trying to get the tape out. But the cute design makes up for all of that. I really like it.
