I use this tool ALL the time. I keep it near my desk for quick access.. I love it for the stylus, it has become my number one stylus that I use and I own several... I love the blade on it and the glue really sticks! I have not tried the tweezers on it yet but I am thrilled with everything on it I have tried so far. I don't know how I got along without it before now..lol I love how all the tools are just right there in one compact package and the fast that it is pink, is a bonus!

I was given this as a gift and at first was pretty skeptical. However once I began to actually use it I was pleasantly surprised at how useful it was to have all this in one tidy tool--that is Pink to boot!
I seem to have issues using the popsicle sticks that come with most rub-ons so the 1st part I used was the Rub-On Stylus--It worked great! The rub-on sheet doesn't seem to move around as much when I have used this.
The tweezers are a nice size and having the exacto-type blade right with it as well is super handy!!
The rub-on remover doesn't work on all brands but so far I like how it has helped when I make a mistake!
I have since given a Tool Taxi twice since receiving mine and they like it as well!!

I just got one of these in my stocking and already love it! I opened it a little early and have been using it ever since! The rub on tool is fabulous and works much better than any little popcicle stick or any other little plastic rub on tool I have! The adhesive remover works pretty well too! It is just so nice to be able to have so many useful tools in one easy to carry tool!
It's a really good idea, but I found it hard to understand how to change the pieces. I don't know if the new packaging shows instructions on how to change the tips, but mine didn't. I found it hard to get the tips on mine to stay inserted. However, once I figured it out how to get the tips to stay it ended up being a handy tool.
This tool is very hepful and great for an all-in-one. However you have to use extra care when using the blade because while using it that attachment can slip out. The tweezers are great for those fine touches you can't get a grip on! I haven't used the glue yet...but everything else is pretty nice!
If your goal is to save space and have one, central "home" for all of your necessary tools, the Tool Taxi is awesome...particularly if you are one that goes to lots of crops, etc. If your goal is to be able to have easy, quick access to these tools, I'm not so sure you'll want to purchase this product. I find that while all of the attachments are consistently good, it's much more time-efficient to just use the same tools that I already had. For me, dealing with all the little attachments just gets frustrating, so I end up just using those same tools that I already had - even in their less "nifty" capacity. Yes, they end up taking up a little more room in my "tool bucket," but even when I'm using my Tool Taxi, they're still there, so they're taking up space anyway!
Bottom line: keep the Tool Taxi in your Scrapbook Caddy!
Hope this helps!
The rub on stylus is better than a popsicle stick. I don't like that I have to flip the stylus around to use the craft knife because the lid won't go on unless it's flipped. Since I use the craft knife the most I get tired of flipping it every time. I have only used the glue once and did not like the quality of it. The tweezers were so little and did not go together correctly so they didn't hold anything.
Since I recieved this as a gift I am using it for now but it would be better to buy each thing individually.

I didn't have too much trouble using the different pieces and changing them. I love that the glue comes with a small brush. It makes those smaller jobs more precise. The rub-on tool is nice, as well, since it works much faster than the small sticks. It has a flat edge so you don't have rub so many times over the same surface. My only issue is the set of tweezers. They were uncomfortable to use since they were so tiny and not that effective in picking up delicate pieces.
