I really like these little pop up thread bobbins! They keep whatever stringing element you're working with safe and tangle-free. I often teach classes and I was using plastic or cardboard bobbin cards (typically used for embroidery thread). The cards create creases and kinks in Fireline; these little bobbins solve that problem. Very handy, and quite inexpensive for such a good organizational tool.

Great for starting kumihimo!
I just started experimenting with kumihimo and these bobbins have been a lifesaver. They are perfect for using thread and 8/0 seed beads. The bobbins keep your threads untangled and your beads in line. They even snap in place to secure your thread and beads while working on your kumihimo braid. My only warning is pay attention to the size bobbin that you need. These bobbins are probably too small to use with most beads bigger than 8/0 seed beads. If you want to make larger pieces or use larger beads, then a larger bobbin would be better.
Initially I was surprised by how small these are... But I Love them!
And an added perk of these small bobbins is that they snap together! Which is super super super handy!
I just wish the large ones would snap together like the small ones do... but that's for a different review.
In short, They are very handy for multiple different uses and are of a pretty nice quality, just smaller than I was expecting.
These were much smaller than I expected. I suppose they can be used down the road for ropes with 11/0 seed beads or smaller but I'm just starting out.
