Swingline Tot Slim Stapler Review by Lisa Barthuly

ACCO Brands

ACCO has come up with a handy solution for those of us on the go! Everyone from homeschoolers to business folks could use this handy dandy stapler! This is actually the first heavy-duty miniature stapler I've come across (not like the cheesy ones you've seen in the past). It packs a punch with the ability to staple up to 12 pages at once! It's small enough to go anywhere--only about 4.5" inches long. An attachment allows you to hook it onto a backpack, purse, or key ring. Or you could just toss it into a briefcase or bag. It's collapsible with a little cover, so no worries about staples coming out or getting tangled up with anything else in your bag. It even comes in a variety of fancy colors! This little gem has a one-year warranty, and at a suggested retail of $4.99 it is inexpensive too! Pre- packaged with 500 staples and ready to go to work for you!

This is a high-quality little tool to make life easier and a little more convenient--perfect for when you're on the go to co-op or when you're taking 'school on the road'!
