Sand in Poundland Sellotape Dispenser
Found 6th May 2013
I've had said sellotape dispenser for over two years and I always thought it was great and handy. It was heavy enough, so it stood still and the edge was sharp so it cut the sellotape with no fuss, plus it came with 6 rolls of good tape. Then I noticed when I picked it up recently some grains fell out. I thought it was grains of cereal I spilled on the table that got lodged around it. I picked it up again today and a bit of sand fell out. Like half a teaspoon, which is a lot of sand to expect from a tape dispenser! I curiously looked under it and noticed that the padding at the bottom was loosening, and sand was around it. When i pulled it further apart over a bin, lots of sand began to fall out! I'd say several tablespoons. The sand must have been what made it heavy all this while. I'm really surprised that there is sand in tape dispensers. Is this a normal thing?
