Express Your Element

There are currently 118 elements listed in the periodic table – but exactly which ones come together to make up who you are? And how can you be sure, when who you are seems to change every week?

This notebook lets you express your essence, while leaving you open to reinventing yourself as often as you want. The flexible cover is made from a recycled rubber compound and covered with small holes, and it comes with a packet of 100 "elements" (including letters, numbers and icons) that can be popped in and out. Decorated with names, messages or pictures, this notebook is the perfect size for journaling, taking class notes or recording your dreams. Made in China; meets all US and European safety standards.

        We gave this to my five nieces, ages 9-15, and they all had fun deciding what to put on the cover. The book has both plain and unlined pages so they can draw and write in it.

          Our grand daughter wrote her first thank you note to us using the 100 elements on the cover. Then her mom sent us a photo of the cover note. So sweet. She went right to work on it so Mimi and Papa scored bigtime with this gift.

                  I think that my niece is going to really like this!! It's different and unique and fun! The "elements" are a bit difficult to put in the holes, but not impossible. And I'm sure they have to be a bit difficult so not to fall out! :-) Overall, I'm pleased!

                  I bought this to give to a friend as a birthday present. I put a message on the front with some of the little pictures. My only complaints are that the elements are sometimes hard to put into the front of the notebook, and the elements don't have enough variety. I would have liked to see more letters and more pictures in the elements box.

                  A notebook is an important element to a student. It can also come in handy for work, as a diary, or just to keep track of daily reminders. How would you arrange the elements on this notebooks clever cover?

                  I've seen this on kids shoes and bracelets for years. It isn't uncommon or unique and frankly it looks cheap. Even the binding for the book is bad. those things break really easily when handled by anyone under 12.

                  The perforated cover reminds me of Crocs and the "elements" remind me of those Crocs trinkets. Pass.

                  In theory this is a good idea, especially since you can constantly change out the pieces, but in reality I feel this wouldn't stand up to a kid's abuse. If the binding is cheap plastic so the user can add more paper to it that is one thing, but if not it just looks horrible. Also, there is nothing elemental about the characters and I feel like they would pop off and get lost really easily.

                  Kids (and let's be honest, adults too) tend to lose things. I'd like to see an option to buy replacement element packs. I would even like to see additional, alternative or custominzed element packs.

                  nice idea, but I could totally see those pieces falling off in a backpack and getting lost. If the kids are gentle with it, maybe they'll stay on, but most kids really aren't gentle with the stuff in their backpacks. I know I wasnt lol. and for that price, its not really worth losing those pieces.

                  My niece would like this but I'm sure all the pieces would be lost in no time. Hopefully it comes with a packet that you can keep with it instead of something you throw away. Ugh make this stuff in the USA people!

                  My kids would love this, however for it to work in school they would need a few modifications: 1) Standard 8x10ish size of regular school notebooks 2) perforated pages so they could tear out assignments cleanly and (for the mother) 3) refillable, so that the nifty cover isn't useless when the pages are through.

                  Thanks for all of the feedback, folks! Voting is almost complete on this nifty notebook, but we just wanted to answer a few questions. It does come with a plastic zipper pouch to hold the elements you aren't using. Also, the binding is made from a recycled plastic, so it is sturdy and can support the recycled rubber cover.

                  It would be very easy to lose the little pieces.....
