Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaWoj from Glad to know I'm not the only one!!! Had a heck of a time opening the dang little lizard! Tried pulling but was afraid to break him. He opens sideways - split the lizard in half! The tail side pulls out. Easy. C'mon Scotch - a simple little arrow would be nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ScubaGirl1 from Very cute! (this product was provided free, in return for an honest review) When I chose this tape dispenser, I was excited that the chameleon was supposed to actually change colors..... yes/but. One would have to hold it in one's hot little hand for several minutes to even begin to see a color change, so that is disappointing. The base is open, without any "foundation" to it - as in, no rubber base, or rubber dots to keep it from scampering all over one's desk. Overall, it's very cute, and makes me smile when I look at it, but the actual realization of the idea could use some work. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by jigsawinc from Such A Cute Dispenser! This is an adorable dispenser that makes my smile everytime I see it. I received the Chameleon Tape Dispenser to review and it made me laugh from the moment I opened it. It brought to mind Rapaunzel's little chameleon friend. And just look at that fly looking at the chameleon so adoringly! At first I couldn't see how it was supposed to open for loading a new tape roll, but it didn't take long to realize the side with his tail slides off. It takes a little bit of force where it is connected at the top of the head, but it does snap off. You can then load a roll of tape and get it started before snapping the side back on. It is plastic so you'll want to be careful taking him apart and place him where he won't get dropped onto a hard surface. I was mildly disappointed in the color changing properties that it is supposed to have. It does do it, but it is barely noticeable. The overall cuteness of this little guy makes up for it though. He's such a cute desk accessory! It's nice to have some whimsy around to take some of the seriousness out of the day. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by pjpowell from Cute chameleon I received this product in exchange for my opinion. First of all, the chameleon is adorable- the tape makes his "tongue" sticking out. However, while the dispenser came with a roll of tape, there were no instructions for inserting the tape. It took 20 minutes and a pair of needle-nosed pliers to get the dispenser apart so that I could insert the tape. The best I could determine, the dispenser has to be taken apart in two halves but that is not an easy task. Very cute, but I'm not sure I'll go to the trouble to put more tape in when this roll runs out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kathy from Instructions would be nice! For the love of God, why not show how to open the thing???? It is not obvious and when I finally came to this site to get instructions - nothing here either. Fortunately a reviewer had posted how to open it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vicky342 from Cute 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sbkmorrison from So cute! I received this product free in exchange for an honest review. This tape dispenser is adorable!! I love that it is designed so the tape looks like the chameleon's tongue. I have this on my desk at work and it definitely brightens up my desk far more than a traditional, black tape dispenser. It is slightly more difficult to refill than your standard dispenser (you have to pop the chameleon off and gently pry it in half to get the old roll out) but the design certainly makes up for it. This would be especially perfect for a teacher's desk! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

- This Scotch Magic Tape dispsere holds either 1/2 or 3/4" rolls of tape, and is refillable. Simply pull the halves of the green chameleon apart, and replace the tape roll. Changes color from green to a lighter yellow-ish green when you touch it.
