Do your children like to use markers? Are you tired of worrying about them drying out and not being washable? Well, we have a solution for these issues. The answer is Magic Stix from The Pencil Grip. We were given the opportunity to try these markers for free and now we want to review them for you.
When they arrived in the mail, our daughter Hope, who is 10 years old, couldn't wait to get her hands on them. She loves arts and crafts of any type. Markers have always been one of her favorite ways to express herself, but they always seemed to dry out quickly and the colors were not as vibrant as she would like. She opened up the package and right away you could see her mind go to work.
The first thing she said was that she loved the box that the markers came in. It is made of a durable plastic that keeps the markers in place for easy use and storage even on the go. We received the 12 count markers but they also come in a 24 pack.
It wasn't long before she had them all out and was putting them to use. I asked if they were different from other markers she had used in the past and she immediately said "YES". She said the colors were vivid. She was also excited to find out they had no odor. Some markers give her headaches if she uses them too long. She was also impressed with how comfortable they were to use. She said other markers are too large for her hands and make it hard to hold them for a long period of time. These are the perfect size.
Here are a few of her creations. She was able to use each color and she loved them!
I like the fact they are non-toxic and washable. I don't have to worry about her getting carried away with her drawings. They also have a guarantee not to dry out even if the cap is left off for seven days. Can you believe that? SEVEN DAYS!!! I have thrown away so many markers because they were left out overnight without their caps and that is such a waste of money. These won't do that and that is a HUGE deal for our household. I actually put one to the test and left the cap off for 3 days. It didn't dry out and it worked just as well as the first day we got them.
We are very happy with these markers and encourage you to try them for yourself. I love a company that guarantees their product and has integrity. The Pencil Grip is a company that has those attributes. We love them and will continue to buy and use their wonderful products.
