Mini Desk Set
Too darn small
Normally, I love all things Vera Bradley, but this set is so small, it's a joke. Adult hands can not use it and the quality is very poor. I would retun it for a refund, but the postage would cost more than the product. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this product.

This may be great for little kids but the stuff is too small for adult hands.

Love this set
This set is so cute! I just got it for my birthday from my friends in vava bloom and I love everything about it except for the reusable case. I am having a hard time getting the scissors in it. Besides that I love it!

Awesome set for on the go!
I use my mini desk set when the kids and I go to the library to work on research projects, doing homework while grabbing a bite to eat at Panera or when one of the kids tears a homework page in the morning car line. Dragging a full size stapler, roll of tape or scissors is not practical under these circumstances. Will this product replace the full size versions on my desk at home? No, but when utilized for their intended purpose (on-the-go, small school locker, backpack/purse, traveling), it's great and the Va Va Bloom pattern is beautiful. Well done Vera!

Perfect for young children
My younger sister loves to do arts and crafts, and when she saw this product, she LOVED it! We went into a retailer to get it in Island Blooms. When we got home I tried using it, and it was too small for me. As an 8 year old, it is perfect for my sister, but it's too small for me! (Age 13)

For the Traveling Scrapbooker
Yes the desk set is small. Hence the name "mini". It is perfect for scrapbooking on the road. I love to take this with me on vacations to help add mementos to a journal or album.

If yo have large hands, it's pointless.... But if you are a student in school, its perfect! I get soooo many compliments for it it's not even funny! I have mine in summer cottage. The scissors are good, just as the stapler and highlighter, but I have to use the scissor to cut the tape, I can't cut it using the blade. That's the only setback....

This set is perfect for my locker at school. I keep it in my locker for emergencies. I rarely ever have a highlighter. I hardly ever have an eraser on my mechanical pencils. I am only in 7th grade and i have tiny fingers so the scissors work perfectly. I always need to use tape and the stapler, now i dont have to get up 4 times per class to get them. I would recommend this set to any middle or high schooler. They are perfect!

mini is not the word
The desk set is wayy too small. It is a very cute item, but its probably going to collect dust on my desk. The scissors are too small to the point where they are unusable. Ill probably end up using the tin for something else, because the inside parts are going to either break or get lost.
