I was a BIG fan of Kokuyo and nearly had a heart attack when they ceased making that stuff.

Try Tombow Mono Adhesive Dot Runner. I find it works as well as the Kokuyo.

I never used Kokuyo, but I have really been enjoying Xyron's dot runner. It sticks like crazy, I like the way the dispenser feels, and it makes a satisfying clicking sound when I use it. (Yes, that matters, I'm a dork.) hehe!

Since my last Kokuyo refill ran out, I just started using 3M's Scotch Dot roller and I like it. It seems a lot like the Kokuyo one, but is easier to refill.

It's all about the sound effects, right?!

I tried the Stampin up tape runner and hated it! I'm hoping I'll be able to find someone like my Kokuyo.

Thanks ladies for all the recommendations and the web links. I'll have to try them all and see which one feels right.

kokuyo went out of business (in Canada/US) last year and most stocked up like crazy. Apparently the scotch dot n roller (?) is the same thing. I personally was so sad when they went out. I switched to an ATG because I've had rotten luck with tombow. I look back at my scrapbook layouts and find embellishements and titles puddled on the bottom of the page protectors So far the ATG has been fabulous!

you can still buy kokuyo in Australia..and with AUD and USD being nearly on parity now it makes it a bit more feasible to do this.
I shop at this store all the time and they are very reliable with good customer service

I have bucket loads of Kokuyo. I don't want to run out. It's my favorite, and I dread when my stash is gone! I stocked up HUGE last year when they announced they were not going to have it in the U.S. I can't use the ATG. I tried it--way too big for me. And I have also heard from many that after a few years the Tombo loses it's "stick." I sure wish Kokuyo would reconsider and come back!!!!!!!!!

Bring back my kokuyo please I too loaded up on it and am using it very sparingly. I loved that it did not get gummy at the tip like the tombow. So now I need to find something else. I won an ATG gun and I too find it to big to work with for me. Oh well, glues dots are good though right?

Ladies, I tried the NEW Scotch dot roller and I really like it.
It does feel like my old Kokuyo!
