You can iron, glue, stitch, or sew the patches onto clothing, bags, coats, caps, and even shoes if you don’t have an iron.
Promising review: These are so great! They’re well-made and attractive, but small and subtle enough that you can place them around your office without drawing immediate attention. I stuck “I Tried” on my nameplate outside my office, and my boss cracked up when he saw it. @Braeden H

In order to keep the mouse pad in the proper position and keep your wrist in a comfortable posture, the bottom of the mouse pad is constructed of a non-slip rubber substance that securely grips the desktop.
The mouse pad’s surface is made of a high-density silky material that allows for accurate mouse movement and is highly user-friendly. This mouse pad is made of non-slip rubber and soft memory foam, and it has a long lifespan, doesn’t collect dust, and keeps its form.
Promising review: This mouse pad is SO cute! I love how squidgy the “toe beans” are. It’s very nice to rest your wrist on, and it doesn’t feel like it’s going to lose its shape any time soon.
I love how it looks on my desk, and I’m very happy with how the silicone bottom makes sure it stays in place. Super-fast shipping. Very happy with my purchase. @Cherry

Promising review: My daughter got this for her school Chromebook. She has 7 periods and is able to carry it to every class without having to worry. She has dropped it several times, but it has never broken due to its durability.
Super cute design, and the inside is so smooth. She has had it for about 4 months now, and it barely has any dirt stains on it! 10/10. @Sam

4.7 out of 5
This blanket, which is made of premium fluffy flannel cloth, is not only cozy and warm but also extremely soft for both children and adults. The 300 gsm fleece is ultra-thick, and the skin-friendly fabric won’t scratch you.
The realistic pizza pattern combines the most recent printing technology and a genuine pizza as a template to create a front side that resembles a pepperoni pizza and a rear side that is light yellow, like a real pizza, and looks clean. After being tumble dried and machine cleaned on the gentle cycle with cold water, this blanket won’t shrink or fade, allowing you to use it for many years to come.
Promising review: I loved it. I have many allergies, and this one is allergy-proof. Really warm and comfortable, and 2 people fit under it. I am glad I bought this blanket for the cold early mornings. @Johel
7. With these animal pens, you can have some sweetness while you are doodling in that boring meeting, that totally could have been an email.
4.1 out of 5
These pens have a 0.35 mm extra-fine point and black ink. They are also erasable, just like a pencil. The sensitive gel ink formula disappears with erasing friction, allowing you to rewrite or edit as many times as you need without damaging your notes or documents.
The rubber eraser is conveniently located at the end of the pen, making it easy to correct mistakes. The pens come in 4 different colors and are 14.5 cm (5.7″) long.
Promising review: They lasted me a long time and work well — they are also very cute, exactly like the images. Just so you all know, the pens are all blue and erasable, and you can go over erased places. Apart from that, they function like a regular erasable pen — they could be nicer, but they are definitely worth it. @Havana

8 different animals—including bunnies, elephants, cats, pandas, and more—are included in the package and may be used to make distinctive and memorable messages for you or other people. These sticky notes have 5 cm x 5.8 cm and 6 cm x 5.5 cm (1.9″ x 2.2″ and 2.3″ x 2.1″) dimensions and come in pads with 18 to 20 sheets per pad. They cling firmly to your notebooks, walls, or any other surface thanks to their extremely powerful adhesive, and they are also simple to remove without leaving any trace.
Promising review: I bought these for my toddler to stick all over the place instead of stickers — she loves it, and I love it. Small but cute! @Kat
