I've been using the Kokuyo Dot 'N' Roller for years and recently found out that it will no longer be available in the US. I was very happy when I received the Tombow Dots Roller and found it to be almost identical to the Kokuyo and a little cheaper too! I would definitely recommend this to Kokuyo users who are looking for a replacement product.
I absolutely love this product. I was a little skeptical at first. I use to use just double sided tape. Then I decided...why not. I might as well try one. I did and never looked back. I buy them by the six pack refills and sometimes (2) six pack refills at a time. They are great for adhering to cards and my scrapbooks. They are easy to use...and simple to change out with the refill. I will never look back...I love them.
The dot runner is my absolute favorite! It's smooth, doesn't leave dents on your photos like the mono runner can when it gets to the end of the roll, and easily rubs off if you don't like where you put the adhesive. Definitely my go-to runner and the one I tell all my friends to use!
I really this dots roller - most importantly its easy to refill and the dots really come out of the dispenser. My former dot dispenser was always clogging up and was impossible to refill without my hubby's help.
