We were provided a set of Magic Stix Washable Markers by The Pencil Grip, Inc. to review for Homeschool Review Crew.
Who doesn't love a brand new box of drawing or writing tools? I know, I do. So does my teen aged daughter. For us, a collection of color of almost anything, is inspiring. The box of twenty four beautiful colorful washable markers called Magic Stix we received from The Pencil Grip, Inc. is no exception. Bright and inviting, these markers arrived in a durable hard plastic case, great for keeping these vibrant drawing tools organized.

The brilliant colors of the Magic Stix inspired several new projects and motivated us to complete others. All of the ideas we each used the Magic Stix for were works on paper. The markers maintained the color brightness when we applied the color to paper. They are washable when applied to clothing, a common side-effect of art projects with children. Marks cleaned easily off of our hard surface dining table where we frequently work on projects.
I used the Magic Stix markers to draw on standard printer paper I was using for drawings that I've taken from some of my recent photographs. The Magic Stix color stayed bright and bold when used on the slick surface of the printer paper. My daughter used the markers to finish some of her personal journal projects. The paper contained in her journal is more absorbent and rough. The marks made with Magic Stix adhered as expected on that surface, still bright, but not as bold as it appears on a more finished surface like the printer paper. One of my favorite features of these markers that will be appreciated by families with sensitive children is the fact that they are order-less. They truly are - no smell - at all. The fact that they are non-toxic is a plus for everyone.
The vibrant colors make Magic Stix Washable Markers appealing to any artist. The easy carry feature is great for using these markers anywhere. At our house, art and drawing projects haven't always stayed where they start. Though we didn't try it yet, (still too much winter) this easy to carry, stay organized box will be great for outdoor nature art ideas. That fact that they won't dry out for up to seven days without the lid makes them especially good for families of young artists or absent minded ones of any age. I have to admit though, my compulsiveness to organize supplies made testing that feature just to hard to try. I hope that someone else from the Review Crew has had the willingness to attempt allowing a marker to be left uncapped for a week.
Magic Stix are available in both twelve and twenty four packs and come in a sturdy plastic carrying case complete with a handle for convenience and to help keep them organized. This box of color was a delight to receive, use and review! They can be purchased on Amazon.com.
