Customer Reviews


Great offer! Four glue sticks for such an affordable price! I work in a kindergarten and we need such glue sticks for our children. So I am very glad that I found such a great offer here!

These are the same as when I was school 20 years ago. These work great and doesn't dry out if the cap is on it. I like purchasing these online because they seem to be cheaper unless it's back to school sale in the stores.

Vlada B. on 06/24/2019

No drips or stains, just perfect glue stick. We are using it everyday for our project work and hand-in materials. So far no problems with it, really great!

Artem R. on 06/24/2019

This is a good multi-purpose glue. Liquid glues will warp the paper and ruin the project, or make it less credible - this is a pet peave of mine.

Filip R. on 06/23/2019

Good quality. Very happy with the value. These are really great glue sticks - my kids use them basically every single day for art projects at the table.
