For years I have been giving my husband a glue gun as a suggested gift for birthdays, anniversaries, and other holidays but for some reason I still haven't received it.  I guess I got much better gifts but still, I really wouldn't have slapped him for getting me a glue gun.  😁  So when I was presented with the opportunity to review this Hot Glue Gun with a FREE pack of 18 Glue Sticks, I signed up right away since I am still in need of one!

The glue gun is a nice size, not too small and not too large.  It is lightweight and easy to handle, plus has a decent length of cord so you don't have to stand right next to an outlet.  It has an insulated nozzle and a sturdy base.

After I plugged the glue gun in it didn't take long to heat up.  It came with a metal stand to attach so I can rest it upright when not in use.

Once it was warmed up, the glue came out with very little effort and it was nice not to have to squeeze the trigger hard. The glue gun comes with 2 thicker glue sticks and then an additional package of 18 FREE glue sticks.  Unfortunately, these 18 glue sticks were thinner and didn't fit as nicely into the barrel of the glue gun. The glue still came out but it took more effort to hold the thinner stick in place and push it through, so I'd have to say that was disappointing.  Other than that, the glue gun itself worked great and I will just need to make sure I buy thicker glue sticks to fit the barrel better.

This glue gun would work well on all sorts of art projects, including wood and plastic.  Overall I would rate this purchase 3 out of 5 stars.  I feel the price is a bit high for other similar glue guns and wish that the included glue sticks fit the gun better.
