Customer Reviews

Refill Paper Stars Come Out WonkyI love this and would give it five stars, except it doesn't make great stars with refill paper. I didn't want to buy this and only have 60 stars, so I just bought a generic pack of refill paper, and the stars aren't as puffy, and the points aren't as crisp. U am a little disappointed, but it is easier than making them by hand 4Complete waste of money - takes longer and produces a more deformed product than hand-folding the stars from scratch.I needed to make 1,000 lucky stars in a short period of time, so I hoped this would make that process faster. Not only did it take LONGER to make them when using this "Lucky Stars Maker" ... but the final step did not actually complete the stars (it only slightly indented the sides, not really defining the points at all. I ended up having to 'fix' them all by creasing as I do the stars I make without this contraption. It's much faster and more precise to craft them 100% by hand instead of wasting time using this device. 1Confusing directionsEven with the directions I still can't figure out how to use this thing, so therefore I really don't feel as I can accurately rate this product. That is why I'm giving it 3 stars. The directions don't make sense to me. 3Unsatisfactory results, do not recommendIt's a nice idea but it's doesn't work very well in execution. The "fold" slot creates a less than ideal angle, I have a much better result with the traditional loop method. As for the puffing action, it's very stiff and difficult to pull. I'm an adult so I manage, but if you're hoping this will keep your kid from bugging you for help, search elsewhere. It's probably too hard to pull for most young children.The paper size is very large and proprietary. Small (normal) star paper will not work in this at all. If you have some of the slightly larger papers they will crease a tiny bit which can help you get them started and might save your hands a bit, but definitely not a time saver.All of that being said, the stars it creates aren't very good either. I attached a picture so you can see a variety of the results with the device along with some that I made by hand. 1It works great!Absolutely love this star maker. The only complaint is most of the refill paper you can buy is too small to fit right. I wish I could buy the same paper that comes with the star maker! 5Just ok...I make a lot of lucky stars for craft projects, etc. and thought this would speed up the process. It only works properly with the size of paper that comes with it, which is abnormally wide. This is extremely disappointing, but done for the obvious reason of selling more paper from this manufacturer (when you can buy cheaper, better star paper elsewhere for a fraction of the cost). The stars don't always pop out perfectly, even so, which causes you to have to adjust them... so you might as well have done them by hand in the first place.A run down of how this works: take a strip of lucky star paper; fold it several times according to the directions to created a paper pentagon; open the top of the star maker and place the pentagon's edges appropriately under the small tabs; pull the yellow lever, which causes the paper to fold at the contact points and puffs out the star's body.Simple, sure, but I can't see a kid not being bored. I would have liked it a lot more if they hadn't used non-standard paper measurements (using smaller paper sort of works, but is ultimately pointless). If you're making lucky stars, you're supposed to make hundreds, so, unless you want to keep forking out money for the strips, just do them by hand. 2Fingertip SaversI make a lot (I'm talking 1000+ per show) of paper stars for craft sales and the like, and for those who have made these themselves, you know it hurts your fingers after puffing up about the first 10. This is especially true if you adopt the method for creating them in bulk, which is to fold them all first and puff them all up later.This might slow down the puffing process, but it has saved my fingers from ugly calluses when I really needed to rest my fingertips.Not good for rush jobs, but good for those of us who can't stop because of a time limit, but need a physical rest. 4FunFun and cute. Takes a bit more strength than your average child's hands can muster. But the rhythm of using it becomes very meditative if you're looking for a non-coloring alternative for adult craft decompression. 4They're great, but it does have a learning curve, and folds a ~1.5cm starI'm not gonna lie, the first time I used the lucky star maker I had a hell of a time with it because the claw-like star-puffing portion of the product doesn't just make things go super smoothly from the get-go. You have to make sure you fold the star pentagon shape properly, you can't fudge it as much as you can making them by hand. (hint- try to tuck the end at least halfway into the last flap, it really helps) You also have to make sure that you place the unpuffed pentagon just so so that you get an un-wonky star with all the triangular sides about the same length. Unlike making them by hand, you can't 'roll' into the proper angle with this device, so you do have to develop a knack for finding the center of five lines simultaneously to get perfect stars. Be that as it may, the learning curve isn't all that steep (it's sight-judging a shape and having dexterity, i believe in you) and the experience of the product is nice enough that i would recommend it, as it does make puffing the stars easier and with fewer concave attempts than free-handed once you get the hang of it.Do be warned though, this product folds a star that is half a centimeter bigger than standard 1 centimeter lucky star paper so in order to fold the standard lucky star, you will have to brace the star against 3 of the claw sides into the star-holding portion into the little hooks, pull the plunger until the other two hooks align themselves, and then completely puff the star. it's a little tedious, and you do have to adjust it a little after the lucky star maker has (attempted) to do its job, but you're not puffing lucky stars yourself. So i recommend this product to everyone who loves making lucky stars, hates puffing them, and prefers the 1.5 cm lucky star size. 4Perfect Stars Every TimeAs someone who is terrible at getting the angle right the first time, and can't seem to get the perfect points on the stars, this was perfect!!! I love the paper it came with, wish I could get more of it, and I consistently get perfectly folded stars!! Some of the paper I have is narrower and so it doesn't fully fold on those stars but it does enough that I can finish that myself with no problems.The stars can and will be launched if you're not careful--I have seven stars still unaccounted for because I was so excited that they flew off somewhere, but I didn't mind much. I will find them eventually. 5
