Reviews From Customers Who Purchased This Item

from United States on 02/20/2020 - Cheap Plastic
Works ok but is cheaply made (just like old CD cases) I'm not thinking this will last very long. Also sticky areas gather lots of fuzz and other junk. Sorry don't think its worth the price.

from on 12/15/2019 - Love these
Useful for beading, would give 5 starts but the plastic cracks easily and one arrived broken

from United States on 11/14/2019 - Great Beading Tool
I used this for the first time last night and find it very useful. The beads stayed in place on the tacky surface yet it was easy to pick them up with the needle. Both sides of the box are sticky and the magnet for the needle is a great addition..

from United States on 10/30/2019 - Tacky bob
Love item works perfectly for all my beaded stitching no spilled beads!

from United States on 08/19/2019
I love my Tacky Bob case. It is so nice and easy to use

from United States on 03/12/2019 - Awesome
Never heard of these before, brilliant! So glad I ordered one and the cover they sent was perfect, butterflies.

from United States on 03/09/2019 - The best for beads!
I love these bead holders! Because they close up, I feel like the beads are safe around other items in a bag. The stickiness of it really holds the beads well but they are easy to pick up with the needle. I just wish they were sold in sets of 10, about half this size, with a place to label what project they are associated with. But I can make labels for them myself. They made my cross stitch projects that had bead work in them more travel-friendly. They are THE BEST for keeping mini beads!!

from United States on 02/08/2019 - Fantastic Item!
I ordered this to replace my old beat up one, that I got at a brick and morter store near buy. This is of fantastic quality and the designs are fantastic! I don't know if it was a lucky coincidence or fantastic customer service but I asked to have my tackybob in any color but pink. They did it! I got a lovely brown/tan one with cute little birdies on it. I am in love. I highly recommend these boxes and 123stitch's customer service is fantastic!!!

from United States on 10/05/2018 - Great tool
I found this to be extremely helpful and easy to use. My only complaint was the needle minder. I put 4 needles on it and closed the box. I didn't notice that the minder was then on the outside and ended up losing 2 of the needles. I think a note on the box stating not to use the minder when the box was closed would be very helpful. Otherwise, the Tacky Bob was great. I would buy it again. The box came with a crack across the top, probably caused by the shipping process. It doesn't effect using the box at all.

from United States on 09/08/2018 - Works Perfectly!
I just finished my first cross stitch project using beads. I separated the beads by color and placed them in the Tacky Bob Adhesive Bead Box. They held well, never rolled around, and released easily when I inserted the needle through the bead hole. I love the Tacky Bob Bead Box!

from United States on 05/08/2018 - you need a Tacky Bob!
These little fellows are awesome for projects with beading, especially if you have cats, like I do, that unpredictably leap on the lap and scatter beads everywhere!

from United States on 03/23/2018
A must for all bead work. Those beads stay in one place until picked up. However, it also picks up small pieces of paper and dust.

from United States on 03/11/2018 - Great !
Wish i had of know about Tacky Bob when i first started stitching with beads! I can put the beads on a lot faster with the Tacky Bob, i love it !

from United States on 11/14/2017 - Tacky Bob - Must have
If you do any beading, you need a Tacky Bob. This is the greatest thing and allows you to put beads of several colors on the surface and then they stay in place and you just get the bead on your needle and attach. Have had many friends see mine and order themselves one as it is such a great tool to use. Beads stay in place when they is put away with your stitching and just waiting for you to use the next time. Great product

from United States on 10/14/2017
Great product. Fast shipping

from United States on 09/18/2017 - Great!
Can't stitch with beads without these. I have many.

from United States on 09/15/2017 - Wonderful
Wonderful product for beading

from United States on 04/06/2017 - Tacky Bob
I heard about this product in a needlework group. Thought I would try it to help avoid spilled beads. It works wonders!

from United States on 01/26/2017 - Can't Live Without Tacky Bob!
My go to as a beadwork container. You can turn Tacky Bob upside down, and the beads don't fall off. Despite that fact, it is easy to pick individual beads off of the sticky surface to stitch with. It's the perfect amount of "stickiness". Love this product.

from United States on 01/25/2017 - Tacky Bob
This is perfect for beading. I don't find the beads getting sticky,from using this. It is sure nice to not have beads everywhere! I will get another one, when / if I need one..It would make a great gift for a beader or stitcher,

from United States on 11/23/2016 - Works great!
I use this for mill hill beaded cross stitch and it works for both size beads. I don't think they are hard to get off the tacky part as some reviewers say. No sticky residue seems to be on my beads. I separate the colors before placing them on here but you probably don't have to. You can pick up color you need. The beads stick well too--you can turn upside down and they don't fall off. And you can close it up with beads in it. I like it.

from United States on 11/18/2016 - This is so useful
Before I found the Tacky Bob, I had a mess. Beads all over the place. When I was done beading for the day or night, I'd have to pick up the beads until the next time. Love that I can close the box, put it away and everything is right where I left it. Only complaint I have is I wish we could pick the design. I love that cat design that is shown in the picture.

from United States on 10/29/2016 - Tacky Bob Adhesive Bead Box
Great product

from United States on 10/21/2016 - Travel companion
These are perfect for beaded ornaments or jewelry on the go

from United States on 10/14/2016 - Great Help
Tacky Bob keeps all my beads in one place and easy to access to make stitching easier.

from United States on 09/21/2016 - Handy item
This bead box is very handy to have when stitching with beads.

from United States on 05/05/2016 - Tacky Bob
Great item for working with beads

from United States on 04/30/2016 - Easily broken
My box arrived broken and 123stitch replaced it quickly but the second one also arrived broken. It may work well for beads but the "arms" of the cover break easily.

from United States on 03/28/2016 - Tacky Bob
Love, love, love Tacky Bob ! it works great, i will not be without it ever again.

from United States on 10/06/2015 - Tacky bob wonderful!
First time I have beaded and this was a great tool! Going to order another one.

from United States on 07/13/2015 - A little "tacky".
This product really works. I'm notorious for spilling beads. Not with this product. My only negative is that the beads I don't use are sometimes sticky and difficult to get back in the container. cjh

from United States on 04/28/2015 - Best invention for beadwork ever.
This product makes keeping beads in one area a breeze. It makes it so easy to see the bead colors and pick them up with the needle. Having two different colored tacky surfaces is brilliant.

from United States on 04/15/2015 - A must for beading!
This product has been so wonderful to use when beading that I don't mind beading as much as I use to! Keeps beads in place and leaves beads clean with no stickiness to them!

from United States on 02/10/2015 - Problems with tacky bob advesive box
There was a little glue transferred to some of the beads. Also the needle magnet is fine while you are working, but when you close the box the magnet is on the outside. I didn't realize this from the picture. I wouldn't buy again.

from United States on 09/20/2014 - Best product ever
If you are doing any kind of beading this is a must have.

from United States on 10/30/2013 - Tacky Bob Adhesive Bead Box
This is a VERY helpful item for beaders. Thanks, ML

from United States on 10/27/2013 - Tacky bob the best
Wonderful product. I couldn't t bead without it. It lasts forever. Thanks tacky bob

from United States on 10/20/2013 - Fantastic
I've often shied away from cross stitch beading projects because handling the tiny beads is hard. This sticky box is wonderful! It allows me to put various sizes and colors of beads on each sticky pad, making it easy to stitch while sitting in my favorite chair and watching TV.

from United States on 10/11/2013 - Tacky Bob
This product is GREAT for heavily beaded projects like the ones from Miribilia! Beats the heck out of beads in a cereal bowl!

from United States on 10/05/2013 - Love Tacky Bob
I just love Tacky Bob. Tacky Bob is one of those tools you find so handy, it's always in your stitching bag. I do nothing but Mirabilias, so my Tacky Bob is essential because the cat was always "investigating" my bowls of beads. Now, even if Bob falls down, I don't lose any beads. A great product!

from United States on 09/17/2013 - Lovely Product
I love Tacky Bob. With a cat in the house, it's far too easy to have bowls or boxes of beads go flying, but Tacky Bob keeps all the beads where I can get to them and use them. I've tried other methods of holding beads and the only one that works for me is Bob. If Kitty jumps up, Bob stays put and the worst that happens is Kitty leaves fur.

great little invention.
