Magic Six Washable Markers and A Giveaway! (A Homeschool Review Crew Post)

My friends. I have another review for you today. This is one is by our friends from The Pencil Grip, Inc.  Stay tuned to hear more about the  Magic Stix Washable Markers and a great Giveaway!

I have a few great loves in my life.

My Muffin and Son. Jesus. My Family. Books. Some more books. Vintage China (the pottery, not the country). History type stuff. 


And art supplies. 

Love the art supplies. Thankfully, our homeschool lifestyle encourages the acquirement of both books and art supplies. One can't have too many of either.  
Magic Stix Washable Markers

We are great fans of The Pencil Grip here in this house. We've reviewed several of their tempera paint (Kwik Stix) sticks, scissors and their patented Pencil Grips. 

Every single product has been a huge hit. 

For this review, I received the 24 pack of the Magic Stix Washable Markers. 

Now these markers promise a lot. The Pencil Grip promises that you can leave the lid off a marker for 7 days and it won't dry out. They are also unscented. No stinky or toxic smells! The markers are washable, yet bright and colorful.

Would the Magic Stix Markers live up to my expectations?

For one, look at the variety of colors you are given!  I also really, really like the carrying case. I generally wind up putting random markers in a plastic shoebox. The typical cases are either cardboard or a cheap plastic. This case is a sturdy plastic with a nifty handle. It's also flat so I can stack it easily on a shelf. 

I was also anxious to try the "7 days with no cap" challenge. I chose the neon yellow for the experiment and placed it, uncapped, in an inconspicuous corner of our piano. You can see the results after 7 days. The color is bright and full!

I do have a little bit of a funny story and disclaimer. Every time I would pass said "inconspicuous corner" of the piano, I noticed that the lid was back on the marker. Josiah kept recapping the marker! I probably should have filled him in on my little experiment. He probably thought I was being my usual fruity self.

We used them for school projects. You will most likely see this picture again in the short future. I was pleased with the ease of how the markers moved.

I personally love to color. I tried them on a few of my adult coloring pages. You can see how bright and vibrant the colors really are. I was especially thrilled with the variety of "green" shades.

I didn't have to work too hard to color. The Magic Stix Markers filled in the spaces quite well.

I was also really pleased with the pastel colors available. You will notice the peach color in this picture. Very light and pretty. Typically peach colors in markers are little orange for my taste.

So The Pencil Grip, Inc. has another hit, in my opinion! The Magic Stix Markers are a wonderful addition to our art supply collection.
