The Pencil Grip, Inc Magic Stix Washable Markers/ TOS Review and GIVEAWAY

The Pencil Grip, Inc.
Magic Stix Washable Markers
How many times have you been mad at your kids for leaving the lids off of the brand new markers you just bought??  I know I've been mad many, many times. I told my kids I was not buying them any more markers because they did this every time I bought them new ones. When I got these markers in the mail my husband actually said " I thought you said you weren't buying anymore markers" LOL
  
At least I got to tell him that these were free! The Pencil Grip, Inc sent me a set of 24 Magic Stix Washable Markers to try out and review. I jumped on this opportunity because I really had lost my mind when it came to markers and the kids. I was set on them only using crayons from now on. I was tired of spending $3 for a pack of 8 markers every week! You know you have to buy a brand new pack if even just one marker is ruined because you need that color....ugh....

Your probably wondering why I am so excited about these markers. I am excited because these markers claim that you can leave the lids off of their markers for 7 days and they will not dry out!
The very first thing I did when I got these in the mail was to take out a marker and start the 7 day dry out test. 



I was pleasantly surprised that these markers really did not dry out, nor did they seem to lose any of their smoothness when coloring with them.

 The first day was slightly darker than the other 6 days, but days 2 through 6 did not lose any more color.

I took a short video to show you how well they color. 


The kids and I had a blast using these markers. We colored some cute fuzzy posters together. 




They work just as well on regular paper and coloring books as well. 

They have a slightly different feel than traditional markers. They feel more "inky" or "wet", I guess is the word, but I think that's a good thing. 

We did have a little trouble with washing some of the ink off of the kids hands. I haven't tried washing it off of clothes so I am not sure how well it washes on clothing, but I would think it would come out just fine in the washing machine. 



All in all though we LOVE these markers! I love the fact that if the kids leave the lids off and I don't notice it until the next day that we aren't out a marker and more money. The Magic Stix Washable Markers are available on Amazon for $14.72. 

I think this is very much worth the price. You get 24 different colored markers, a nice case to keep them in, and the peace of mind that your not going to be throwing markers in the trash anymore. 

I have previously reviewed a few other products from The Pencil Grip, Inc. so I was pretty sure these would be just as awesome as their other products. I reviewed their Thin Stix, which are like paint markers, and we loved them. I also reviewed the Pencil Grip Training Kit and their Ultra Safe Safety Scissors. The scissors are a must have for toddlers. So be sure to check those products out as well!

I highly recommend that you get a pack of the Magic Stix Washable Markers for your family.
 You can also enter my giveaway for a chance to win a free set! 

Just leave a comment on this post ( I would love it if you also followed me) and I will randomly draw a winner on Monday, the 19th.

The vendor will be sending the winner a brand new set of their own, so make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you are the winner! 

Good luck and be sure to read what my fellow Crew members thought of these markers as well.

This would be a nice set of marker to have...Kids always misplace the lids and we have to toss the markers because of it drying out.
