Scribbler 3D Pen Review and Coupon Code #HolidayGuide2016


If you have a teenager on your list this year and aren’t quite sure what to get them I have an idea for you. Scribbler 3D Pen.

3D Pens are becoming more popular.  A great gift for the creative person in your life who wants a new way to express their creativity and imagination. Scribbler 3D Pen uses plastic filament like other 3D Pens. Scribbler 3D Pen allows the user to make 3 dimensional art.


When we got ours in the mail my 12 yr old son was immediately drawn to it.  He already knew but he asked me what it was. When I told him he said “oh no way! I’ve been wanting to try one of those!”  He couldn’t wait to test it out.

This is definitely something for older kids. The tip gets hot to melt the plastic filament, it’s plugged into an outlet, and it did take some reading and trial to get the hang of it. Once he started to get the hang of it we shot this little video to help you see it in action:

As my son used it more he was able to use it more smoothly.  The box does recommend for ages 14+. My 12 yr old has a strong interest in things like art and building activities.  I felt comfortable allowing him to use this.

It did come with 3 different colors of filament.  You can buy filament refills for it and additional colors if you like.  Scribbler 3D Pen also comes in different colors.

ZERO FOXTROT – Veteran Owned Company Gift Idea for Veterans and Military

I mentioned in a previous post about Zero Foxtrot that my hubby is a veteran of the Iraq War and Kosovo.  He served 6 years in the army. My husband also has a sense of humor. He discovered Zero Foxtrot about a year or so ago.  He loves it. For his birthday, Father’s day, and now Christmas he usually has at least one thing from Zero Foxtrot on his list.

Zero Foxtrot is a US Marine veteran owned and operated company. “We provide unique products that reflect the old school vintage military lifestyle”.  My husband found one of his favorite mugs on the site with some old military humor for Operation Iraqi Freedom” which he was a part of.

Their mugs are heavy quality mugs handmade in the US. They are oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe. My husband actually has several Zero Foxtrot mugs because he likes them so much.

They also have a Zero Foxtrot Mystery Box on the site. It says it includes new and never before seen products. At $67 a box I wondered if it’s worth the price. We got one and boy, is it ever! It was packed full of Zero Foxtrot items.

The skull with the ZF is their logo so you see it on a lot of their items. I’m gonna try to name everything that was in the box but there was so much.  A drawstring bag, a car flag, several Zero Foxtrot stickers, a bottle opener, a T-shirt, a baseball hat, a coffee sample, a velcro patch, a death card,and a couple wrist bracelets. Honestly the shirt and the hat if you were to buy them would be nearly $50 so you get your moneys worth from the box.

My hubby LOVED the black on black Zero Foxtrot hat.  That was the first thing he focused on out of the box.

I bought hubby a Zero Foxtrot hoodie and he’s been wearing it every day since I got it for him. It’s really thick and warm. Quality made, you’re NOT getting cheaply made stuff with Zero Foxtrot.

I wanted to tell you that this post is NOT sponsored. My hubby truly enjoys this company. I wanted to include it in my holiday guide for ideas for veterans and military people (They have women’s items too). Honestly my dad was never in the military but he got a kick out of a lot of stuff on the site referencing some of his favorite old movies like Kelly’s Heroes.  I’m sponsoring a giveaway to Zero Foxtrot just to get the word out about this great company.

DISCLAIMER: The site does feature war themed product and some strong language
