Incredible Electronic Tape Dispenser


From the website:

    Incredible Electronic Tape Dispenser

    Now we know you can probably pull tape off a roll yourself — but why should you have to?

    With this Incredible Electronic Tape Dispenser you can get a little machine to do it for you!

    It automatically pulls and cuts all the small pieces of tape you'll ever need!

    Ideal for all those guys out there who like to indulge in a bit of amateur engineering.

    Also great for crafts and gift wrapping!


    • Get tape pieces in a flash — no more tugging or fumbling

    • Suction cups on the base keep it in place

    Requires 4 AA batteries (not included).


"Ideal for all those guys out there who like to indulge in a bit of amateur engineering."

Does Judie Lipsett know about this?

She will.

But I digress.


Full disclosure: I've had its companion Electronic Stapler (below)


for many years and find it as cool and fun as the day it arrived.

You slide your document into the slot below the business end and voila — you watch the plastic gears engage and spin around and there's a wonderful whirring noise before the stapler head slams down.

Cheap at twice the $25.50 price.

I thought the stapler was gone forever 'cause I haven't seen it for sale anywhere for at least five, maybe ten years.

Don't come crying to me come the holidays because it's sold out.

Unless you don't mind waiting until 2018 when I feature it again.

Love it. My kid would love it too. I'll be spending all my money on tape. Better to admire from afar I think.
