Elmer's Launches "Early Learners" Product Line for Preschoolers

Elmer's Products, Inc. announced the official launch of Elmer's Early Learners, a product line designed to meet the specific learning and developmental needs of preschool-age children. The line includes a glue pen and glue stick that help children develop fine motor skills while encouraging creative and independent play. The glue stick is available at all Target stores (MRSP $2.19). The glue stick and glue pen are available at select Wal-Mart stores and on Walmart.com (MSRP $2.19). Triangular in shape, the Elmer's Early Learners glue stick and glue pen help preschoolers by encouraging the development of critical fine motor skills, including the precise pincer grasp, the pre-writing tripod grasp and active manipulation of objects, which are highly predictive of academic success in elementary school reading and math. The products also encourage creativity and imaginative play, which are critical to cognitive development in a young mind. Other product features include: Chunky, triangle shape makes the product easy to hold for young hands and prevents the product from rolling away. An easy-to-pull-off cap on the glue stick and simple screw-off cap on the glue pen means children can play more independently, building their confidence. The glue stick has an angled tip to aid in proper grip. The glue pen has a controlled application for less mess. Early Learners goes on purple and dries clear so children can easily see where glue has been applied. The Early Learners line was created by Elmer's, which means it is not only optimally functional, it is safe, non-toxic and washable. Coinciding with the product launch, Elmer's also developed the Elmer's Early Learners Academy, which offers valuable resources, playtime tips, expert advice, lessons, craft projects and more for parents, grandparents and caregivers to encourage learning while using the product.

Elmer's Products, Inc. Introduces First Heavy-Duty Acrylic Adhesive That Won't Foam Up

Elmer's Products, Inc. introduced Elmer's(R) ProBond Advanced(TM)--the only multi-purpose adhesive on the market that delivers professional strength and versatility without the foamy mess that polyurethane glues leave behind. ProBond Advanced works on nearly any substrate -- wood, concrete, metal, glass, ceramics and more. It is 100% weatherproof, making it ideal for both interior and exterior projects. Unlike popular polyurethane glues, ProBond Advanced won't foam up after it's dry. This saves DIYers, contractors and woodworkers the time and hassle of cleaning up their projects and hands after working. ProBond Advanced is nontoxic and washable when wet. It dries translucent, won't stain hands and has a longer shelf life than the standard polyurethane adhesive. With a 100% performance guarantee, consumers can get a refund of the purchase price if they are not satisfied with its results. Tests against the polyurethane glue show that ProBond Advanced offers greater lap shear strength--the strength demonstrated by the diagonal pull of two substrates until adhesive failure--on a variety of applications, including steel to wood, stainless steel to wood, aluminum to wood, acrylic to acrylic, acrylic to wood, ABS to ABS and ABS to wood. Strength tests are based on laboratory testing done October 4, 2011, on the eight most common dual-surface applications. Elmer's(R) Carpenter's(R) Wood Glue MAX(R) is still the recommended adhesive for wood-to-wood applications. ProBond Advanced is now available at The Home Depot, Dollar General, Ace Hardware, Do it Best, True Value, Orgill, Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores and select independent hardware retailers. Elmer's ProBond Advanced is available in two-, four- and eight-ounce bottles for $4.99, $6.50 and $10.99, respectively.
