Fun with Cutting
With its sleek, wand-like shape, the Crayola Cutter is perfectly suited for children. Children will be able to cut all sorts of paper with ease, including construction paper, magazines, and photographs. The cutter can accommodate both left-handers and right-handers with a simple adjustment of the base. It is also incredibly easy to use: It cuts with the push of a button and is easy to guide. To maximize fun and creativity, a project idea booklet has been included to inspire kids. It comes with three stencils, which offer additional help to beginning crafters. And the cutter also comes with craft paper, sheets of acetate, card stock, and a photo frame -- all the materials kids need to get going.

Guaranteed Safety
Parents are sometimes hesitant to let their children use cutting tools, due to the obvious safety concerns. The Crayola Cutter guarantees safety with its unique design. It uses a punch-tip system and cuts by perforating rather than using a blade. This system is strong enough to cut paper but is designed not to harm users. As an extra safety precaution, the cutting tip immediately retracts when not in use. Parents can rest assured that their children will be safe while using the Crayola Cutter. Recommended for children 6-10 years of age, the cutter requires two C batteries (not included with the kit).

She is no longer interested in using it.

Additionally, no matter what angle you hold it - it is very hard to get the teeny blade to perforate or cut anything properly.

I have found uses for this thing, mostly starting the center of a small hole which I then use scissors to round out.

I got this for my daughter for Christmas, but I opened it and tested it to be sure it was in working order. It works beautifully and I could spend hours playing with it!! It actually makes TINY perforations in the paper, but when you go slowly in your desired pattern, it actually looks as if you've used an exacto knife. I made small, intricate patterns in the middle of a piece of paper and the shape popped right out and it looked great. I also like that the stylus pen isn't attached to the cutting board so it's great for left-handed or right-handed users. It's also nice to be able to position the stylus where it feels most comfortable in relation to the cutting board.

I know my 7-yr-old will have fun with this for years to come as she is always cutting and creating new projects.

I recommend this for anyone's child who is an arts and crafts nut like my daughter. I can also see this coming in handy with school projects down the road.

Note that you can't currently purchase extra blade tips separately from crayola, but the box contains one extra one. However, I spoke with a rep from their customer serivce area and she said the blades should last for a long, long time if used on the recommened types of paper and cards, etc....

Well, it is Christmas Day 2006 and this present was a huge disappointment for our 6 and 10 year old, as well as myself, the 39 year old! The photographs show the children holding the pen at an angle, the way kids normally color and draw, however, you do have to hold this vertical to the paper at all times, and you have to move it as slow as a snail in order to allow the holes to be close enough together so that you can "cut". Even then, the results were disappointing. I love to draw and craft, and this "cutter" is going back in the box because both my children hated it. Now, I have to figure out what to do with it. It's not even something that I would pass on to anyone else's kids, to tell you the truth. I bought this brand new at the store, so I doubt that it is malfunctioning. I read the other positive reviews and am puzzled because they love it. If you like sitting there and moving a tool at a snail's pace, getting a perforated line, then you will probably like using this crayola cutter. If you expect anything more, then you will be disappointed. My advice would be to try out a friend's before you buy.

I may not be the youngest "kid" anymore, but being the type that loves to create arts and crafts, I figured purchasing this for a little more than $20 bucks is a decent price for something that could make cutting easier in those tiny, hard-to-reach places x-acto knives can't reach easily.

The product is relatively solid and built very well. I was expecting less. Though the perforating cutting tip which often errs may not be the most precision tool around, for the price it's to be expected. But use it with a ruler and you'll get very straight cuts. It's also great to 'score' paper where you'd like a fold instead of a cut. Unlike the previous reviewer, I can't agree that cuts will ever come out x-acto blade-smooth; the paper will fray no matter how slow you cut. However, if you want x-acto-quality cuts you should buy an xacto blade. ;)

I'm not too sure just how kid-safe this item is. Oftentimes the blade (which is essentially a tiny ice pick) will stop in the exposed position, though it's hardly exposed enough to cause any serious harm to anything but an eye. I've touched the blade lightly to my finger while it was activated to see if there was potential to be dangerous to children, but it would probably take a firm press to break the skin (of course, I didn't want to test that any further). It's stated on the box that kids should be supervised while using this machine, so don't leave it with them while you do other things. No matter how safe it may seem, kids always get into the kinds of trouble you never expect while you're not looking.

The required two C batteries don't seem like they'll last very long, and the unit specificially says on its battery cover "do not use rechargable batteries," so that option is out.

My daughter is almost 6 and we got her this for Christmas. The commercials made it look really cool and easy for kids, no more scissors! Well we opened it today and it's too hard for her to hold the button down for any amount of time and to move it around slowly enough to actually cut anything. I'm having to do it all for her and my hand gets tired too! They should have made it that the "pen" cuts when just being pushed on the paper or something. I have a 9 year old also that was trying to use it and it wasn't all that easy for him either. Seems more like something teens or adults that scrapbook would use.

Just got this for our 11 year-old since she loves to be artistic and this was a wonderful buy. It is easy to use and comes with 3 different stencils. (1 is of shapes, the other 2 are of letters) But, you can purchase regular stencils (the plastic kind) from any local store and use those. You can also draw freehand what you want to cut out and hold it just as your would a pencil to trace over it and cut it out. You can make so many neat projects with this such a 3-D cards! Or just cut out the shapes and then glue a different color of paper underneath.

If you have a little artist in your family, get it. And it is great for adults as well, especially if you like to do scrapbooking. It is a good bargain.
