When it comes to art supplies we homeschoolers can be pretty picky. When we spend our money we try to go for quality, knowing that we want the supplies to last a long time. In my opinion Magic Stix Washable Markers from The Pencil Grip, Inc. are an excellent investment for your homeschool or non-homeschooling family! There are some reasons these particular markers are superior to others we’ve used. One is the fact that they don’t have an odor and are still vibrant. Some typical brands with very vibrant colors have an incredibly strong odor which honestly gives me a headache. Other popular brands don’t have a strong odor, but the color is lackluster or fades after a while. These beautifully bold colors don’t smell at all and still retain a bright color. Another incredible feature of these is that they don’t dry out quickly! In fact, they can last 7 days without the cap on…7 DAYS! I know I am not the only mom out there who has sighed at finding a maker leftover from a fun art activity on the floor without a cap and if not completely dried out, it was well on its way. It is so disheartening to spend my money on product and through the inevitable course of events of childhood have to throw away those products. It feels like I’m throwing my money away. There is no need to feel this way any longer. It’s easy to see if you have forgotten a marker when putting the case away and even if you do inadvertently miss it and the cap happens to be off, no sweat!
I have already recommended these markers to friends and will continue to do so! I think these are the highest quality markers I have used in our home.
